Great Falls Man Sentenced to 110 Years for Killing Disabled Veteran
A Great Falls man who was convicted of killing a disabled veteran in February 2016, burying his body in the dirt floor of a barn and stealing his disability benefits, has been sentenced to 110 years in prison. Brandon Craft will not be eligible for parole until he serves 50 years. Craft's ex-wife Katelyn Zdeb pleaded guilty to stealing Adam Petzack's benefits, which had been directly deposited into his bank account. According to the Great Falls Tribune, Zdeb took a plea deal in 2018 and testified again Craft. She was sentenced Friday to 20 years.
Petzack's remains were found in 2016 on property Craft had lived at after Craft confessed to killing Petzack and drew a map for investigators. The Great Falls Tribune writes that, after the murder, Craft and Zdeb allegedly sold Petzack's truck and stole over $3,500 in VA benefits from Petzack's account.
