A man was sentenced to life in prison after a jury convicted him of murdering a woman who was letting him stay in her York County home.
Jurors deliberated for less than an hour and a half Thursday morning before convicting 34-year-old Bryan Brackbill Jr. of second-degree murder in the death of 57-year-old Sandra Mulder.
Mulder’s body was found in her Carroll Township home in June 2013. Authorities said her hands and feet were bound with duct tape, and Brackbill was driving her car when he was arrested in Missouri the next day.
Prosecutors said Brackbill was homeless when he and his girlfriend moved into Mulder’s home in the 200 block of Chestnut Grove Road.
They said Brackbill killed Mulder “in a fit of drunken rage.”
