Hostetler takes guilty plea deal

GLASGOW — The family of Brandon Crain say they are glad the court proceedings involving Daniel J. Hostetler, who was accused of killing Crain in 2012 are over, even though they don’t feel as if they truly know the answers to all the questions they have regarding Crain’s death.

The matter came to an end Tuesday morning when Hostetler, 20, changed his plea to guilty in Hart Circuit Court shortly after a competency hearing, during which he was found competent to stand trial.

He pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and tampering with physical evidence, according to Hart County Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Joe Ballard. The suggested sentence is 13 years incarceration on the manslaughter charge and five years on the tampering with evidence, with the sentences to run concurrently for a total of 13 years.
