Winona man gets prison for burglary

WINONA — A Winona man was sentenced to 61 months in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree burglary but a charge of attempted first-degree murder was dropped.

John Bartz, 44, also pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree assault but the prison terms of 15 and 48 months will run concurrently, according to Winona County Courts records.

The attempted first-degree murder and several other counts were dropped during his Aug. 12 sentencing.

The complaint alleges he went to the home of a former girlfriend March 23 and tried to strangle her.
