On Tuesday May 22, 2012, a jury found Brian Hummert guilty of first degree murder. Brian Hummert was arrested in October 2004 for killing his wife Charlene in March of that year. Fairview Township Police enlisted the help from several other police agencies and forensic experts across the country to solidify the case against Brian. He initally pled guilty to 3rd degree murder, but was able to withdraw that plea. In 2006, Brian was then convicetd of first degree murder, but through the appeal process he was granted a new trial. On May 14th, the new trial began and after both the prosecution and defense rested, it only took the jury about 45 minutes to come to their verdict. Fairview Township would like to thank all those involved for their help in the sucecssful prosecution in this case.
