Michigan Live reports:
Mark David Latunski, the Shiawassee County man accused of killing and dismembering 25-year-old Kevin Bacon in December 2019, has pleaded guilty. Latunski, 52, appeared before Judge Matthew J. Stewart of the 35th Circuit Court Thursday, Sept. 22, and pleaded guilty as charged to open murder and mutilation of a body.
A degree hearing will be held on Oct. 18 to determine whether Latunski is convicted of first- or second-degree murder, or manslaughter.
Bacon, of Swartz Creek, was stabbed, his body hung from his ankles, his throat cut, and parts of him were eaten, according to prior reporting by MLive, which cited police who searched Latunski’s home. His body was found on Dec. 28, 2019.
Read the full article. Latunski’s lawyer had pressed for an insanity defense at trial, but he apparently refused.
Police say that the killer confessed to cutting off the University of Michigan-Flint student’s testicles—and later eating them after the murder. https://t.co/fqwVaJypSR
