POLK COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A northwest Wisconsin man will be sentenced June 26th, after he struck a plea deal in the brutal beating death of his fiancé.

45-year-old Scott Youngmark of Milltown escaped an impending life prison sentence Tuesday, by pleading guilty in Polk County to a reduced charge of second-degree intentional homicide.

Four previous felony counts and two traffic charges were dropped as part of the plea deal – but as always, they’ll be considered in the judge’s sentencing order.

Youngmark admitted stabbing and beating 47-year-old Kari Roberts at their apartment. She was found dead last December 1st.

Authorities said Youngmark was freed on a reduced bond for bail jumping just 15 days before the killing. That charge was connected with a stabbing and an assault incident in 2011.
