Man convicted of murdering Michigan woman apologizes to family at sentencing
MONROE, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A man convicted of murdering a Michigan woman after a Halloween party and dumping her body in the woods received a life prison sentence without parole.
Chelsea Bruck's killer, Daniel Clay, apologized to her family during his sentencing, saying he was sorry for everything he's put them through.
"I will live with this every day for the remainder of my life; it'll be something I wake up thinking about, something I will go to sleep thinking about," he said.
Daniel Clay was found guilty of beating Bruck to death in May, more than two years since she disappeared from a 2014 Halloween party in Monroe.
The 22-year-old's body was found in a secluded area about six months later.
Police say DNA on her Halloween costume led them to Clay, who admitted to being involved with Bruck's death, but claimed it was an accident.
Bruck's mother says she forgives her daughter's killer.
She handed him a Bible before leaving the sentencing.
