Upper Peninsula Man Sentenced to Prison for Large-Scale Drug Operation

A man already convicted for his role in an Upper Peninsula triple murder will spend decades in prison for running a large-scale drug operation.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced Thursday Kenneth Brunke was sentenced to up to 30 years in prison.

He pleaded no contest to three felony cocaine charges.

Those charges stem from a triple homicide in Schoolcraft County in April 2015.

Brunke was charged with lying to a peace officer and obstruction of justice in that case and sentenced to up to five years in prison.

Both sentences will be served concurrently.
