Body cam shows arrest of suspect days before he’s accused of killing nurse practitioner
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Police released new body camera video showing Kenneth Freeman, 28, getting arrested just hours before police say Nurse Practitioner Carlie Beaudin was attacked walking to her car.
Police records show Freeman was in custody for two days before Beaudin was killed. Officers were called out to an apartment complex for a separate incident, that is where they ran into Freeman.
“Back up right now and drop the hammer," said one officer.
He was arrested for threatening officers with a hammer.
He was taken to jail where he gave police a hard time.
“Are you willing to sign for the hammer that we took from you? asked an officer. "No," he replied.
He was released and never charged for that crime.
Two and half days later police say Freeman attached Beaudin as she was walking to her car in a parking garage.
In a statement to investigators, Freeman said that he “deliberately and purely murdered ms. Willa” and when asked to provide additional details replied, “there isn’t anything I want to talk about”.
