Baumgartner testifies; Wolfe ‘pleads 5th’ in murder trial
WARRICK CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Testimonies continued Tuesday in the murder trial of a Boonville man.
46-year-old Brian Baumgartner is one of three people accused in the death of Valerie Ruark in 2019. This is week two of his trial.
Baumgartner took the stand around 11 a.m. to testify in his own defense.
26-year-old Anthony Wolfe Jr. was convicted earlier this year and sentenced 75 years in prison.
Wolfe was brought in Tuesday for testimony, but we’re told simply “pleaded the fifth.”
The prosecutor tells us closing arguments are expected Wednesday.
A plea deal was reached in the case of 38-year-old Ivory Baumgartner.
She pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice and was sentenced to probation.
