FDL Man Sentenced to Prison for Dodge County Homicide


A 21-year-old Fond du Lac man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of a Beaver Dam man. Nigel Schultz was sentenced in Dodge County Court Tuesday after being convicted of First Degree Intentional Homicide in the death of Bradlee Gerke.

Shortly after being released from prison for a previous felony, Schultz shot Gerke in the back of the head and torso 16 times and buried him in a shallow grave in the Town of Lebanon. Schultz reportedly told investigators he killed Gerke, because Gerke was going to turn him into police. Schultz also repeated his confession to many others, including telling acquaintances in a recorded jail phone line that shooting someone 16 times “cannot be an accident.”

A news release says Schultz had a lengthy criminal record prior to the murder of Gerke, having amassed 10 felony convictions and multiple misdemeanors all before his 18th birthday.

Dodge County District Attorney Kurt Klomberg said in a statement that he is “totally convinced” that Schultz will kill again if given the opportunity, and that he should “never be allowed to be released from prison.”
