Prosecutors will charge the two suspects in the murder of an Altoona man separately.
Court records show 47-year-old Brandon Gaston and 57-year-old Tracey Clark will not be tried together for last year’s murder of 79-year-old Dennis Schattie. Investigators believe he was killed in Eau Claire, but his body was later found in the river near Rockford, Illinois in April of 2022. There is no word when the two will actually go on trial. There’s a hearing in Gaston’s case at the end of this month. A hearing in Clark’s case is scheduled in October.
