Boyfriend may be forced to testify against Martinson
RHINELANDER - Ryan Sisco might need to testify against Ashlee Martinson in order to keep his end of a deal with prosecutors. The 22-year-old Sisco is charged with having sex with an underage Martinson, who is 17.

Martinson and Sisco were arrested while driving through Indiana in March. Prosecutors believe Martinson killed her mother and stepfather the previous day in Rhinelander. They don't believe Sisco was involved in the killings. But he faces an unrelated misdemeanor charge of illegal sex with minor.

Sisco struck a deal with Oneida County District Attorney Mike Schiek. If he follows the rules of the deal over the next year, his charge will be dropped. The deal includes an agreement to testify truthfully at any hearings involving Martinson.
