Onalaska Church Shooting

A man convicted of killing three people at a church in Onalaska nearly 30 years ago has been ordered back to a state mental-health facility.                  
That's because an appeals court confirmed that he violated conditions of his release.

A judge ruled last year that Bryan Stanley failed to report that he was experiencing violent thoughts for more than a year. The 57-year-old appealed the decision but an appeals court on Friday upheld the lower court's ruling.

Stanley had been found not guilty by reason of mental disease after shooting custodian William Hammes, the Reverend John Rossiter and lay minister Ferdinand Roth Senior in 1985.
