Jury Convicts Bremerton Woman of Manslaughter in Port Angeles Killing

Updating an earlier post, a Clallam County jury convicted a Bremerton woman Thursday of second-degree manslaughter.

Andrea Freese, a 34-year-old mentally disturbed woman, could have served the rest of her life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder, reports the Peninsula Daily News.

The 34-year-old stabbed William Boze, 73, in his Port Angeles home on July 28, 2007. The two had been arguing over changing the channel, the daily news reported. Freese’s attorney’s arguments appear to have steered the jury toward a lesser charge, due to her mental illness. She’ll likely face between 31 and 41 months in prison.

Freese’s mother, Charlene Logsdon, a bus driver in Silverdale, told reporter Paul Gottlieb that she thought the sentence was lenient.

“It’s sad to think, just three years for a man’s life,” she was quoted as saying. “We love our daughter, but she did a terrible thing,”
