Man Who Killed Friend And Stuffed Body In Freezer Sentenced To Prison

Last updated on Friday, November 8, 2013

(KOKOMO) - A Kokomo 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, 53, was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to reckless homicide in the 2012 death of Alex Shipp, 29.

Howard Circuit Court Judge Lynn Murray said Logan's actions in hiding Shipp's body in a freezer in his Kokomo home showed his "depraved indifference toward the victim" and his relatives.

The Kokomo Tribune reported 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 dead.
