LEWISBURG — A Lewisburg-area man could serve up to seven years on his sentence for a methamphetamine arrest in Kelly Township earlier this year.

Union County President Judge Michael Hudock sentenced Kurtis Vonneida, 28, to serve 27 to 84 months Tuesday on one count of operating a methamphetamine lab, a felony. Vonneida pleaded guilty to the charge last month.

Vonneida has been held at SCI-Benner Township in Bellefonte on a parole violation since his arrest Feb. 22.

Police arrested Vonneida and Amanda Kratzer, 31, at their raised ranch-style home on Gessner Road. A state parole agent conducting a home visit for Vonneida at the time discovered materials used to manufacture methamphetamine, according to arrest papers. Vonneida also possessed a small amount of methamphetamine, police said.

Kratzer, a lead witness in an open homicide case in Union County, previously pleaded guilty to one count of operating a methamphetamine lab. She was sentenced in September to serve a minimum 15 months in state prison followed by three years probation supervised by state parole.
