Twelve years after fatally beating Anthony Hamlin and dumping his body in a Ledyard field, one of the two men state police said was responsible for his death has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in exchange for a 20 year prison sentence.
A caller reported seeing the man’s body at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday. The state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner performed an autopsy that did not have conclusive results, police said Sunday, and police are still working to identify him.
