Anthony Bennett Pleads Guilty
Anthony Bennett has pleaded guilty in the death of little Carnel. Statement Analysis had indicated deception on his part.
This was a controversial case from the beginning, including a search for the little boy which failed to show him buried under the house, and some of the most vile marketing and money-making tactics to ever surround a murder case.
The plea means he will serve 30-35 years and says:
"On June 21, 2012, when he was left alone with Carnel Chamberlain at the residence on Tomah Road, Bennett killed Carnel. Bennett acted with callous and wanton disregard for Carnel's life when he killed Carnel. In other words, Bennett killed Carnel with malice aforethought. After he killed Carnel, Bennett burned and partially buried his body in order to conceal what he had done."
"The U.S. Attorney agrees that defendant has assisted the authorities … in the prosecution of defendant's own misconduct by timely notifying authorities of the intention to plead guilty, thereby permitting the government to avoid preparing for trial and permitting the government and the court to allocate their resources efficiently."
In spite of physical and emotional abuse of Carnel, his mother, Jaimee Chamberlain, continued to leave the child hostage to the wrath of Anthony Bennett, as she claims they were "making him a man."

Bennett had previously been sentenced to 3 years in prison for assaulting a guard.
Jaimee Chamberlain had been arrested for cocaine sales.
