    An hour after his client repeatedly shouted in a courtroom that he had killed his parents, Erik Buggeland’s defense attorney said a plea deal offered to his client was reasonable.

    In court for a motion hearing, at first Buggeland spoke calmly with his attorney, James Gibson. Then Buggeland began pleading with Gibson to help him enter a guilty plea.
