Michigan Man Found Guilty Of 2 Murders, Including A Teenager: Here Is What You Need To Know

The prosecution said that Brad Srebnik killed his fiancée Abby Hill after learning of his actions in the Alpena region in the summer of 2021 and that he also killed 17-year-old Brynn Bills.

After the verdict was read in Alpena County court on Thursday, Srebnik decided to remain behind bars. A mandatory life sentence in jail awaits him.

The murders of Brynn Bills and Abby Hill shocked the community, and we hope that these convictions may bring some peace and healing,” Attorney General Dana Nessel said.

Bills was last seen in August 2021, not long before her eighteenth birthday. The following month, her body was discovered in Joshua Wirgau’s Alpena Township yard.

That autumn, Hill, 31, was discovered dead in a forested region.

An essential witness for the prosecution was Wirgau. He was accused in connection with Hill’s killing as well, but he accepted a plea bargain in return for a prison term that will allow him to be released on parole.

Srebnik told Wirgau, the jurors were informed, that he had strangled Bills. According to Wirgau, he was there when Hill was shot and killed. There seemed to be a common theme throughout the group: drug use.

Patrick Cherry, the defence lawyer for Srebnik, suggested to the jury that Srebnik might have been set up by a drug dealer who didn’t like Bills. Danielle Hagaman-Clark, assistant attorney general, called the notion “garbage.”
