Kern Changes Plea to Guilty

Posted: Updated:

A change in plea coming today for one of the men who was involved in a mobile home fire in Lockwood that killed four people back in April.

Zaccary Kern pled guilty today to four counts of negligent homicide by accountability for his role in the fire last April. 

Kern said in the hearing that after the four victims fell asleep he and another man, Robert Bottenhagen, started a fire in the kitchen. Kern then claimed they ran out of the trailer without awakening the victims or calling the fire department.

Kern faces twenty-five years in prison after entering his guilty plea.  Bottenhagen has pled not guilty to four counts of negligent homicide.
