Convictions Dismissed, Sentence Stands

Convictions Dismissed, Sentence Stands

The young Dane County man convicted of killing his parents back in 2021 has had two of his convictions tossed, but his sentence won’t change.

A judge yesterday dismissed Chandler Halderson’s convictions for hiding his parents’ corpses. Wisconsin law doesn’t allow someone to be convicted of two crimes if one of them is considered a lesser crime. Hiding a corpse is a lesser crime than murder. Halderson is serving a life sentence for killing his parents, then hiding their remains at the family cabin.

He will continue to serve that sentence even after yesterday’s dismissals.
