A person of interest in a triple-homicide case was sentenced to six months in prison on Wednesday after pleading guilty to possession of a small amount of marijuana.
Brett Bednarz, 46, of Manchester, is one of two persons of interest to East Hartford police as they investigate the killings of Beverly Therrien, 74, Pamela Johns, 60, and Michael Ramsey, 53, who were all found dead on Thanksgiving Day at Therrien's home at 154 Naomi Drive.
Bednarz, whose bail had been set at $515,000, also pleaded to charges of violating his probation as part of the deal with prosecutors in Superior Court in Manchester. He had not been scheduled to enter a plea on Wednesday.
On Dec. 8, about two weeks after the bodies of Therrien, Johns and Ramsey were found, police executed a search warrant at Bednarz's home at 114 Rachel Road in Manchester, where he lives with his sister, Candace Bednarz, 52, the other person of interest, and her daughter and grandchildren. Police found less than 4 ounces of marijuana during the search.
