Trial Continues for Man Accused of Murdering Father-In-Law in Kalkaska County

The trial for the man accused of killing his father in law continued in Kalkaska County Wednesday.

Brian Degroot faces up to life in prison if jurors find him guilty of killing and torturing Michael Brandt.

More people testified, including the man who performed the autopsy on Brandt, along with several detectives and officers.

It happened January 2017 when Brandt’s friend found him rolled up in a carpet inside his home.

The prosecutor says multiple tools were used to kill Brandt.

Degroot’s attorney says the evidence provided this week will show there were not multiple crimes committed.

The trial is expected to wrap up by Friday.
