Brillion man convicted of killing his mother will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.

Outagamie County Judge Michael Gage today sentenced Randal G. Rosenthal to prison for life with the possibility of extended supervision starting July 31, 2061, almost 50 years after Kathleen Remter's death.

"It will be an advanced age for the defendant if he survives that long. An age ... significantly beyond what we understand is a life expectancy for someone of his age as in the courts view it should be." Gage said. "A life was taken without justification. The responsible person must also be affected."

Rosenthal was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide for shooting his mom on a fishing trip near the Rapide Croche dam to collect on a $586,000 life insurance policy.
