Home Invasion Homicide Charges Filed 23 Feb 12

A 29-year-old Ceylon man now faces a 2nd-degree murder charge for a home invasion killing in Blue Earth earlier this week. Officials say the brutal home invasion was carried out by jealous husband Brian Daniel Freeman, who used a hammer to assault his wife and another man while they were in bed and then attacked his wife’s two teenage daughters. Freeman was charged with 1 count of murder and multiple counts of attempted murder in court Wednesday for the attack that killed 37-year-old Christopher Michael Fulmer of Blue Earth. Freeman’s wife, 38-year-old Candice Marie Freeman, and the two teens suffered life threatening injuries. Freeman allegedly wore a mask and hit his victims multiple times in the head with a hammer early Monday morning. After the attack, he allegedly called 911 and then left. His bail was set at $2-million in court today Wednesday, and he’s due back in court on March 5th.
