LE CENTER, Minn. (KEYC) - A Le Center man who pleaded guilty to killing his father before setting their home on fire will be sentenced today.

Hardy Robert Wills-Traxler, 28, was charged with second-degree murder and arson in January 2021, after he confessed to stabbing his father, 64-year-old Bruce Alan Traxler.

Wills-Traxler will appear in Le Sueur County District Court today at 1 p.m. for sentencing.

The arson charge dropped as part of a plea agreement.

Wills-Traxler now faces up to 25 years in prison, with credit for the time he’s already served.
