Neenah Man Committed For 30 Years For Shooting And Paralyzing Brother-in-Law

The 26-year-old Neenah man who shot and seriously wounded his brother-in-law on Christmas Eve of 2011 has been committed to a mental institution for 30 years. Winnebago County Judge Thomas Gritton sentenced Christopher Andreas yesterday on four counts of 1st degree recklessly endangering safety. Andreas last month was found guilty, but not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect and was convicted of the crimes. Christopher Garland was watching football with his son in the Town of Clayton when Andreas shot and critically wounded him.  Garland was paralyzed as a result of the shooting.
