Ceylon Man Guilty Of Murder 12 Feb 13

A Ceylon man accused of using a hammer to kill a man who was with his wife has pleaded guilty to murder. Thirty-year-old Brian Daniel Freeman pleaded guilty Monday to one count of second-degree intentional murder and three counts of first-degree assault. Freeman reportedly wore a mask when he entered a home in Blue Earth last February and used a hammer to kill 37-year-old Christopher Fulmer. Freeman’s wife, Candice Freeman, and her two teenage daughters were also hit with the hammer and suffered severe injuries, including skull fractures. Freeman faces 33 years in prison when he’s sentenced on March 11th. His public defender says that if the case had gone to trial, he would have argued the attack happened in the “heat of passion.”
