APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - An Outagamie County judge has sentenced Michael Potts to 25 years in prison for the 2008 murder of Artheddius Peeler at a Grand Chute birthday party.

Judge Mark McGinnis also gave Potts 20 years of extended supervision.

A jury initially convicted Potts of first-degree intentional homicide. However, McGinnis ruled that Potts' attorney was ineffective and ordered a new trial after that sentencing. 

Before the finish of the second trial, Potts agreed to a plea deal calling for a reckless homicide conviction.

A second suspect in the murder, Keith Birr, was acquitted.
