Clare County Man Gets Life Sentence For Murder
A man will spend the rest of his life in prison after pleading guilty to a murder in Clare County.
36 year-old James Kuhns of Farwell pleaded guilty to murdering Leonard Hempel back in April of 2016.
Hempel’s body was found in the backyard of a home after being reported missing for three weeks.
The victim’s 31-year-old daughter, Angela Hempel, was also charged with lying to police at the time.
She admitted to the charge and was sentenced to prison in September.
Now, a judge has sentenced Kuhns to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
