OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - The man who shot and paralyzed his brother-in-law on Christmas Eve in 2011 has been sent to a mental institution for 30 years.
A Winnebago County judge sentenced Christopher Andreas of Oshkosh on Wednesday.
Andreas had been convicted of four counts of recklessly endangering safety. Last month, a judge ruled that Andreas was insane.
His sister's husband, Christopher Garland, was paralyzed by the shooting.
Andreas’ placement at a mental health facility is still being worked out. In the meantime, he will remain in the county jail.
