A local man will serve five to seven years in prison for strangling his fiancée in March 2020, and his time will run consecutive to 12 years he got for a federal drug conviction.

Louiz Pena, 35, was sentenced by District Judge Thomas W. Rumpke on Thursday afternoon. The sentence will run consecutive to a 12-year federal sentence for Pena’s involvement in a meth distribution ring in Wyoming.
