Murder Evidence Ruled Admissable 31 Oct 12

A judge has ruled that evidence in the case of a Ceylon man accused of murdering his estranged wife’s boyfriend *will* be admissable in court. 29-year-old Brian Daniel Freeman has been indicted on 1st-degree murder charges for the killing, which happened during a home invasion in the City of Blue Earth in February. Freeman allegedly used a hammer to assault his wife and 37-year-old Christopher Michael Fulmer while they were in bed in Fulmer’s home, and then is said to have attacked his wife’s two teenage daughters. The 3 women all suffered life-threatening injuries in the attack, but did recover. Freeman faces a total of 11 felony charges, and could spend the rest of his life in prison. His attorneys had argued that evidence should be thrown out because Freeman had not been advised of his Miranda rights when he made statements to police and turned over clothing, but prosecutors argued that he was not under arrest at the time so officers were under no obligation to read him his rights.
