Convicted killer shouts profanity at judge during sentencing hearing

An Elkhart County man convicted of shooting and killing his uncle back in 2015 hurled foul language at the judge during his sentencing.

It was just before he received his 63-year sentence that Charles David Bussard, 31, said “F – You” to the judge. He said those were the words his uncle said to him just before he was shot back in 2015, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.

After the shooting, prosecutors say Bussard burned his uncle’s body, ground his bones and flushed them down the toilet.

The case was first filed as missing persons case and went cold until last year, when Bussard confessed.

He told police, at the time, he did it because he was tired of hearing his uncle’s rude comments.

After that comment the judge should have given him more time. You went to try for more?

This is a complex case If the killer had not confessed, he would not have been convicted. This shows he has some remorse? a conscious? He disposed of the evidence ( body) completely. I personally, feel more leniency towards a felon who expresses remorse ( genuine) and takes responsibility turns one self in good info here not reported

For very guy like this that gets a long sentence of a heinous crime Dopey King Xo lets 1000 across the border with no background check or even a Covid test. Very soon we will be over run with criminals. I don’t blame folks for wanting a better life. All can have a much better life in the USA than any other place. But it HAS TO BE ORDERLY. I cannot disrupt our economy, our taxes, and massively expand the welfare rolls. President Trump said “America First.” That was Dopey King Xo’s signal to do every thing opposite what the law says or The People want. We The People have lost control of our own destiny. Anyone who has paid a modicum of attention to politics over the last 50 years knew Joe Biden was a dingle-berry.
