Report: Seymour man pleads guilty to voluntary manslaughter

A Seymour man would be headed to prison for 14 years after pleading guilty in the beating death of his fiancee.

The Seymour Tribune is reporting that 45-year-old Brian Cogdill has agreed to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the case. He is accused in the death of 19 year old Emma Jamison on Sept. 6th at their home.

The newspaper reports that Cogdill was facing a 30 year prison sentence, but the plea agreement would mean 14 years in prison, 10 years suspended and five years on probation.

The plea agreement must still be approved by Judge Stephen Heimann, who is acting as special judge in the case. The next hearing is set for October 3rd.
