Man given 40 years in prison for drug debt homicide

A man convicted of killing a Green Bay area woman in 2016 because of her boyfriend’s drug debt has been given a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison.

Anthony Kitchenakow, 47, was sentenced in Brown County Circuit Court Thursday for first-degree reckless homicide in the death of Suzette Langlois.

The 52-year-old Bellevue woman died of a single gunshot wound to the head as she sat in her car in her driveway.

WLUK-TV reports Kitchenakow was arrested two years later after DNA on a pistol magazine in the victim’s car led investigators to him. The case never went to trial because Kitchenakow entered an Alford plea, meaning he doesn’t admit guilt, but believes there’s evidence to convict him.

Judge John Zakowski also ordered 10 years extended supervision to follow the prison sentence.
