LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A Wisconsin man has been sentenced to fifty years behind bars for his role in the torture and murder of a woman and her son.
27 year-old Michael Sisk was the last of three adults charged with abusing a woman and her young son. Prosecutors say sisk, his girlfriend and another woman tortured both the boy and his mother before killing her.
They say the teenage boy watched as his mother was brutally beaten, killed and then buried in the backyard of the family's Portage home. During Sisk's trial, doctors testified the boy was near death when he was found in a closet of the home. They say he'd been burned, starved and confined for two months.
A Columbia County judge sentenced Sisk to 58 years in prison, plus another 47 years of extended supervision.
