Trial for Ventura suspect accused of killing man whose body was kept in freezer for 2 ½ years


VENTURA, California — A trial has been ordered for a Ventura man suspected of killing his mother's boyfriend and hiding the body in a freezer for 2 ½ years.

The Ventura County Star (http://bit.ly/1Gqw8hK) says Superior Court Judge Nancy Ayers decided Thursday that there's enough evidence to try 51-year-old Michael Bresnak for murder.

Ventura police contend that Bresnak choked to death 60-year-old Jeffrey Korber in March of 2011, then bought a freezer and put his body inside. Police found the body in June 2013 at a storage warehouse.

Police Detective Todd Hourigan testified Thursday that Bresnak admitted during questioning that he choked Korber after they got into a fight while drunk.

Bresnak was arrested on suspicion of the killing in August 2013. He already was in jail following an arrest in an unrelated drug possession case.
