Halderson Trial Channel3000

Chandler Halderson was accused of killing and dismembering his father, Bart Halderson, and his mother, Krista Halderson, before ultimately being convicted.

After initially reporting them missing, saying he hadn’t heard from them since July 2, Chandler was arrested for lying to police about their whereabouts.

After human remains later identified as Bart and Krista were found scattered around Dane County, Chandler was charged with two counts each of first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, hiding a corpse and providing false information on a missing person.

A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf after he stood mute in court when the charges were read. After a multi-week trial, jurors returned guilty verdicts on all eight counts after deliberating for just a couple of hours.
