MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut man who police say is a “person of interest” in the killings of his mother and two other people has been sentenced to six months in prison for marijuana possession and probation violations.

Forty-six-year-old Brett Bednarz was sentenced Wednesday in Manchester Superior Court after pleading guilty. His lawyer declined to comment.

Bednarz’s mother, 74-year-old Beverly Therrien, was one of three people found beaten to death last Thanksgiving Day in Therrien’s East Hartford home.

No one has been charged in the deaths. Police say they found a small amount of marijuana during a December search of the Manchester home of Bednarz and his sister, Candace Bednarz, who is also a “person of interest.”

Brett Bednarz was on probation for what authorities said was an assault on his mother last year.
