Judge threatens to bind and gag convicted killer

OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. — A 26-year-old cold case is finally closed but not before the convicted killer spoke during his sentencing that earned him a threat by the judge.

A Michigan court convicted Ryan Wyngarten in the 1987 deaths of his brother-in-law and sister.

During his sentencing he accused the police of pressuring his wife to testify against him to gain a conviction. He also accused the police of trying to frame him and told police how to do their jobs.

The final straw came when Wyngarten interrupted the judge.

The judge threatened to bind and gag him if he did not control himself.

Wyngarten was sentenced to life in prison.
