Man Gets 18 Years To For Sentence For Slaying In Which Victim's Body Was Stored In Ventura Freezer

A man accused of strangling his mother’s boyfriend, and stuffing his body into a Ventura freezer where it sat for two years has received an 18 years to life prison sentence.

Michael Bresnak had been convicted of second degree murder for the 2011 killing of Jeffrey Korber. The killing came after the two got into an argument. Bresnack wrapped the body in plastic, and put it in a freezer in a Ventura storage locker. An informant led detectives to the scene in 2013.

Bresnak’s mother, Mary Hannan, is also facing charges from the killing. She pled not guilty to charges she helped cover up the killing after the fact.
