Split verdict in 2007 drug-related homicides

MAUSTON, Wis. (AP) -- A jury in Juneau County has delivered a split decision in a trial for a man accused of two drug-related homicides.

Jurors found John Tetting guilty in the 2007 shooting death of 23-year-old Tabatha Nealy and not guilty in the death of 31-year-old Joshua Alderman.

A criminal complaint says Tetting drove co-defendant David Turner to a remote location in the northern Juneau County town of Finley to meet Alderman about a drug deal. Alderman was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Nealy. The complaint says Turner fatally shot Alderman and Nealy. He has been convicted and is in prison.

Daily Tribune Media says the 30-year-old Tetting was found guilty Wednesday of being party to Nealy's death, but acquitted in Alderman's homicide.
