Charges: Husband used hammer in Blue Earth, Minn., attack on wife, others

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Officials say a home invasion in Blue Earth was carried out by an apparently jealous husband who used a hammer to assault his wife, another man, and his wife's two teenage daughters.

Faribault County officials charged 29-year-old Brian Daniel Freeman of Ceylon with one count of murder and multiple counts of attempted murder for the attack that killed 37-year-old Christopher Michael Fulmer of Blue Earth.

Freeman's wife, 38-year-old Candice Marie Freeman, and the two teens suffered life threatening injuries.

The complaint says Brian Freeman wore a mask and hit his victims multiple times in the head Monday. It says he told authorities he believed he struck Fulmer, but didn't recall specifics.

Freeman's attorney says he'll seek a transcript of that interview. Bail was set at $2 million Wednesday.
