Coming Saturday: Court says judge must explain Schwander sentence

TRAVERSE CITY — A local judge needs to explain why he sent a convicted killer to prison for about twice as long as called for under state sentencing guidelines.

A Grand Traverse County jury in October 2011 convicted Robert Jensen Schwander, now 19, of second-degree murder. Schwander killed Carly Lewis, then 16, in a since-demolished hut on Beitner Street in Traverse City on June 2 of that year.
