Woman set to be sentenced in Portage torture case

Posted:

PORTAGE, Wis. (AP) -- A woman is set to be sentenced Monday in Portage for helping her gang of drifters kill a woman and torture a young boy.

Twenty-four-year-old Candace Clarke pleaded no contest in July to being party to second-degree reckless homicide. She also pleaded either guilty or no contest to a host of other charges.

Investigators say Clarke and her boyfriend, Michael Sisk, led a gang of identity thieves that crisscrossed the country. They say both of them had a hand in the 2007 death of Tammie Garlin, another gang member, and severely abused Garlin's 11-year-old son.

Sisk pleaded guilty or no contest to a host of charges in August.
