Not-guilty plea made in Indiana freezer body case
KOKOMO, Ind. — A judge has entered a not-guilty plea for a central Indiana man charged with killing a homeless man whose decomposing body was found in an unplugged freezer.
A Howard County judge also set a March trial date for 52-year-old Walter Logan of Kokomo during a hearing Wednesday. A court staffer says a public defender for Logan wasn't immediately appointed.
Court documents say Logan told investigators that he duct-taped 29-year-old Alex Shipp's nose and mouth and put Shipp's body in his basement freezer after he died. Kokomo police say investigators found Shipp's body Sunday, a day after his mother reported he was missing.
Investigators in the city about 40 miles north of Indianapolis say the men fought after drinking, taking drugs and having sex.
