A 29-year-old Ceylon man now faces 11 felony charges instead of seven in the February murder of a 37-year-old Blue Earth man and beatings of his wife and two younger females.

A grand jury sat through two days of testimony at the Faribault County Courthouse before filing new charges against Brian Daniel Freeman.

Freeman had been charged with second-degree murder but now he also faces two counts of first-degree murder, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. He also faces two new charges of first-degree attempted murder and three counts of first-degree assault.

The 23 jurors issued the indictment late Friday afternoon, June 22.

More details will be in the next Faribault County Register.
