True Crime: Parents Murdered By Son In Wisconsin – Chandler Halderson Was Found Guilty Of Eight Felony Charges

On Thursday of last week, 23-year old, Chandler Halderson was found guilty of eight felony charges by the Dane County court in Wisconsin. Halderson has been convicted of eight different felonies, including murdering his parents. His parents, Bar Halderson and Krista Halderson, were reported missing last July.

True Crime: What Happened?

In July of 2021, Halderson reported that his parents had just vanished from their home. Just the next day, the police ended up finding a human torso in the town where the couple lived. Chandler had been seen in the area and he was driving backward “with the rear hatch open in a field near a wooded area.” Of course, this gave police probable cause to arrest him and question him.

Police questioned Chandler about what happened and they believe that he did shoot his father and then he dismembered him. He ended up dumping his remains in this area. He told the police, when he called, that he believed his parents were going away for the Fourth of July weekend.

On July 30, police then found Krista’s remains in a town nearby. On July 8, Chandler was arrested and he plead not guilty on these counts. The court did find him guilty of two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, hiding a corpse, mutilating a corpse, and falsifying information about a missing person. In Wisconsin, intentional homicide does get the convicted felon a mandatory life sentence in prison.

During his trial, this past week, his attorneys made it very clear that they did not want him to take the stand. His lawyers also did not call any witnesses for the 23-year old. They told the press, “It’s probably a bit unusual certainly not unheard of when you’re talking about a case where it’s a burden of proof, which is what the argument was here. In cases when there is an affirmative defense… there you expect witnesses because there is an alternative version of events to discuss. While you’re talking about a case where the argument is there is just not enough evidence here, there aren’t really many witnesses you can really call to support that because simply by calling them, you’re adding to the evidence.”

Halderson has already appeared in court once before and now it looks as if he will be sentenced in March for the crimes that he has committed against his parents. This appearance will also be where attorneys battle it out to see if he is ever eligible for parole.
