An Eau Claire man will spend 15 years behind bars for killing another man. Larry Fernandez, 46, reached a plea deal – pleading no contest Tuesday to second degree reckless homicide in the August 2012 death of 52-year-old Frederick “Brian” Harvey. A charge of hiding a corpse was dropped, along with several other counts of making threats and battery to a prisoner.
Prosecutors said Fernandez strangled Harvey at the victim’s mobile home in Eau Claire, and later buried Harvey’s body on rural land near Bruce in Rusk County.
