KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana man who pleaded guilty to killing a friend and stuffing his body inside an unplugged freezer has been sentenced to 28 years in prison.
Walter Logan was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to reckless homicide in the 2012 death of 29-year-old Alex Shipp.
Howard Circuit Court Judge Lynn Murray said the 53-year-old Logan showed "depraved indifference toward the victim" and his relatives by hiding Shipp's body in a freezer in his Kokomo home
The Kokomo Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1iOSfUi ) that Murray ordered Logan to pay more than $1,800 in restitution for Shipp's funeral expenses.
Logan told investigators that after a fight he bound Shipp's hands and feet and placed duct tape over his nose and mouth, then fell asleep. When he awoke, he said Shipp appeared to be dead.
