    Attorney Jeff Lockwood told jurors he sought not sympathy for his client but acknowledgement of the factors that led to Baer slashing the throat of Cory Clark and her four-year-old daughter, Jenna, in their home near Lapel in February 2004.

    Authorities are seeking the death penalty for Baer, who was convicted last week of two counts of murder.

    ANDERSON, Ind. — An attorney for convicted murderer Fredrick Michael Baer pleaded for his client’s life today, saying that if jurors recommended the death penalty they would be saying Baer “doesn’t deserve to live.”

    Attorney Jeff Lockwood told jurors he sought not sympathy for his client but acknowledgement of the factors that led to Baer slashing the throat of Cory Clark and her four-year-old daughter, Jenna, in their home near Lapel in February 2004.

    Authorities are seeking the death penalty for Baer, who was convicted last week of two counts of murder.

    Lockwood added: “You are being asked to condemn a human being.”


    Madison County Prosecutor Rodney Cummings, speaking in an interview, acknowledged Baer had a tough life, but said, “So what?” He added that nothing justified what Baer did to the Clarks.

    Death penalty overturned in Frederick Baer case

    Jan 12, 2018

    "...The Court of Appeals overturned Baer’s death penalty sentence on Thursday and remanded the case back to Madison County for resentencing...

    In making the ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals cited ineffective legal counsel for failing to object to jury instructions that kept the jury from considering mitigating circumstances and failure to object to instances of prosecutorial misconduct...

    Madison County Prosecutor Rodney Cummings said Friday that the case was going to be reversed because of the erroneous jury instruction given by Judge Spencer...

    During a 2013 interview with The Herald Bulletin on death row, Baer said he thinks about the case every day and that he deserves to die.

    He believes death offers the only release from his constant regret and self-loathing."

    "NDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana attorney general's office is asking a federal appeals court to reinstate the death sentence of a man convicted of killing a central Indiana woman and her 4-year-old daughter.

    The filing asks the full U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago to review a January decision from a three-judge panel that found Frederick Baer had ineffective legal counsel during his trial. The panel sent the case back to a Madison County court for a new sentencing hearing..."
