OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin man who shot and paralyzed his brother-in-law on Christmas Eve in 2011 is being committed, after a judge ruled that he was insane.
WLUK-TV reports that a Winnebago County judge sentenced Christopher Andreas on Wednesday to 30 years in a mental institution.
Andreas had been convicted of four counts of recklessly endangering safety and last month was found to be insane.
The shooting left his sister's husband, Christopher Garland, paralyzed. Garland had been watching football with his son in the Town of Clayton when he was shot.
Andreas will remain in the county jail until he can be placed at a mental health facility.
