A La Crosse County judge has sentenced a man who killed his victim in a 2020 fight to eight years in state prison. Fifty-two-year-old Matthew Kinstler will spend six years on extended supervision when he gets out. He was sentenced Friday after pleading no contest to a charge of first-degree reckless homicide. Kinstler was accused of fighting with 79-year-old Russell Paulson in the parking lot outside a Menard’s big-box retail store. They were arguing over a parking spot. Paulson died in the Mayo Clinic Health System two days later.
