Son Pleads Guilty To Killing Parents

A young man, who police say gunned down his parents inside their Grant County home, has struck a plea deal in the case.

23-year-old Russell Bramlage admitted to killing Terry and Lynda Bramlage, who were found dead at their Williamstown home last November.

As part of the plea agreement, Russell Bramlage was sentenced to life in prison, but he will be eligible for parole after 20 years.

Prosecutors say family members agreed to the plea deal because it would just be too difficult to see the case go to trial.

Family members reportedly wanted to make sure Bramlage would have the option to be released, sometime down the road.

A judge will formally sentence Bramlage next month.

    To Lex1976-I am sorry you feel that way, but contrary to what you think, not all christians are that way. I know that if that man asks God to forgive him, then he will be forgiven and will have an eternity in heaven. Christians are still sinners, the difference being that we are sinners saved by the grace of a loving God. Now, hopefully, we are walking with the Lord in our daily lives, and people can see that we are christians.

    What's the reason..had he had a difficult upbringing?., Were they bad parents at some point in his life? Or were they excellent, loving parents and he just turned out to be a self-centered, ungrateful punk?

    I agree with the family, it would be too difficult on them, but that young man has an eternity to deal with this. There's no plea agreement made with the Supreme Judge of all, he will still have his Day in Judgement, he can bank on it!
