Last week, a jury found Halderson guilty of all eight charges he faced stemming from his parents’ murders. The jury deliberated for roughly two hours before reaching a verdict.

He faces up to life in prison due to the first-degree intentional homicide charges, but a judge could decide if he will have the possibility of parole.

Halderson reported his parents, Bart and Krista, missing in early July and was later arrested for lying to police about their whereabouts. The couple was last seen on July 1. Halderson initially said they had planned to visit their cabin in northern Wisconsin for the Fourth of July holiday.

Investigators later found human remains belonging to Bart and Krista scattered in multiple locations around Dane County.
