The murder trial of Daniel Bartelt entered its third day on Wednesday. The day featured Bartelt’s mother taking the stand. During her testimony it came to light that he was living a life of lies even fooling his parents.  She told prosecutors that her son told her, and her husband he had a job for several months, when in reality he didn’t. She said , they only found out the truth when investigators told them, after Blodgett’s death. She said she and her husband were surprised by the news because he would leave every day at the same time and they didn’t know where else he would have been going except to work because it seemed legitimate. Bartelt’s mother also testified that her son came home early on the day of Blodgett’s death, telling her that he was only working a half-day. Blodgett was found dead by her mother on the afternoon of July 15th, 2013. Bartelt faces four felony counts in the case, one count of first-degree intentional homicide for the Blodgett death which if he is found guilty on will send him to prison for the rest of his life.
