    Levi Axtell, 27, was charged with second-degree murder after Lawrence V. Scully, 77 was discovered dead at his house in Grand Marais, Minnesota.

    It’s thought Axtell was fretted about Scully, who was founded guilty of sexually attacking a six-year-old woman in 1979, being anywhere near his 22- month-old child.

    He implicated Scully of parking his van outside his kid’s day care in 2018, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. He obtained an order of defense which was given, however then dismissed within numerous weeks.

    A hearing heard Axtell came to the constable’s workplace covered in blood and‘put his hands on his head and said that he had murdered Scully with a shovel’


    Axtell informed officers he struck Scully 15 to 20 times with the big spade and after that ‘finished him off’ with a big moose antler.
