Man Sentenced to Life in Prison for Killing

10/8/11 – A South Milwaukee man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing a man who had pressured him about a drug debt. Circuit Judge Jeffrey Conen agreed to let 34-year-old James Szuta have a chance at freedom. The judge made him eligible for extended supervision starting in 37 years, depending on how well he behaves behind bars. Police said John Weinhold was found dead in June of last year in a mini-van at a park in Cudahy. Szuta first told police that Weinhold had been abducted. But Szuta later admitted killing Weinhold because he had pressured Szuta to pay for illegal drugs that he bought earlier.
