Due to incorrect information supplied to the Brainerd Dispatch, the last name of the two people whose bodies were found Monday inside a residence in Lake Edward Township after a structure fire were misspelled. The names should be Kenneth Alan and Kathleen Marie Ponsness.

Also on Page 1A Wednesday, Brandon Todd Sannan’s last name was misspelled in the headline for the story on how Sannan pleaded guilty to third-degree attempted murder and first-degree arson in the Chickamaw Beach house fire case.

The Dispatch regrets the errors.
