Trial date set for drug suspect

MANISTIQUE — A trial date has been set for a man accused of multiple drug felonies.

Beginning December 12th, 46–year–old Ken Brunke will stand trial on two counts of delivery, manufacture of cocaine and one count of conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance.

Brunke is currently in prison, serving 40 to 60 months after pleading guilty to charges of lying to a peace officer and obstruction of justice last October.

He received the drug charges back in February after his sentencing. In April of 2015, Brunke’s home was used in the murders of three people.

The other defendant in that case, Garry Cordell, is serving a life sentence in prison for killing the three people in Brunke’s residence.
