Eagle Scout Charged With Killing Mother & Father

Last week, Sabrina Sims, a detective from Dane County in Wisc., took the stand to review several emails addressed to Chandler Halderson. Twenty-three-year-old Halderson is on trial for murdering and dismembering his parents after his father found out that his son had been lying about going to school, where he worked, and future employment opportunities.

Dozens of emails were sited in which Chandler Halderson fabricated correspondences between himself and staff members from Madison Area Technical College.

In a recent interview on Court TV, Denver defense lawyer Jeff Wolf discussed the state’s mounting evidence against Halderson and how it will likely portray his character at trial.

“The state is doing a really good job laying out all of the different lies…the motivations for those lies and what that reaction could have been the bigger they get,” explained Wolf. “Tuition is presumably being paid. Where is that money going? What’s happening? So many different areas of [Halderson’s] life were fabrications to his parents. You can see the overall manipulation that’s going on here and how that could lead to the type of blow up specific to the allegations in this case.”

Halderson is charged with first degree intentional homicide, mutilating and hiding corpses, and giving false information to authorities.
