ANACONDA, Mont. - A Washington state man is being sentenced after pleading guilty to murdering his 3-year-old son in a remote Montana field.
The sentencing hearing of Jeremy Cramer of Lacey is Friday in Anaconda, about 5 miles from where the body of Broderick Cramer was found in July.
Jeremy Cramer pleaded guilty to deliberate homicide in December. He told District Judge Loren Tucker then a prison sentence didn't matter to him because his son was dead.
Prosecutors are recommending life in prison with no parole restrictions, though the judge is not bound by the recommendation.
Cramer was arrested after a convenience store employee found him washing blood from his clothes in the restroom.
Investigators found an empty container for a stimulant, and his brother told police Cramer was a former methamphetamine addict.
