Bradley Wade Rietze sexually assaulted and strangled his teenage stepdaughter with the belt of her bathrobe on Jan. 17, 2010. Court heard Rietze suddenly attacked Brittney Nora McInnes without warning in her bedroom when the two were alone at the family’s Canyon Meadows home. Family members found the 17-year-old girl’s body the following day. Rietze pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and received a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years. A judge also ordered him to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
