Bond set for 3 accused in fatal Dane County beating

Prosecutors say a man was fatally beaten at his home near Lodi because his girlfriend believed he was cheating on her.

Authorities say McKayla Tracy called Drew Luber and Jacob Johnson to the home she shared with Dalton Ziegler on Monday where they beat him resulting in his death.

Tracy, Johnson and Luber appeared in Dane County Circuit Court Thursday. A commissioner set bail at $50,000 each for Tracy and Luber and $35,000 for Johnson. Defense attorney Greg Dutch argued Tracy didn’t strike Ziegler and tried to get the others to stop beating him.

Formal charges against the three are expected Friday or Monday.
