Sisk takes plea deal in Portage torture case

PORTAGE (WKOW) -- The final person in the Portage torture and murder case that was preparing to stand trial has struck a plea deal.

Michael Sisk faces up to 136 years and three months in prison after being found guilty of 10 charges. He had been charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the killing 36-year-old Tammie Garlin.

In court today, prosecutors reduced the charges to second-degree reckless homicide.

Sisk could have been sentenced to life in prison but under the lesser charge faces only up to 25 years behind bars.
