NORWICH – Confessed murderer Daniel L. Brown Sr. could be appearing for the last time in Chenango County Court for the last time today at 1:30 p.m., for his final sentencing.
Brown pleaded guilty to the March rape and death of his apartment manager, a well-known Norwich woman, Tammy L. Periard, 45.
During Brown’s last appearance, Acting Chenango County Court Judge Martin E. Smith, of Broome County Court, said he would allow members of the Periard family to address the defendant in court. Two of the victim’s sisters and possibly her mother will be speaking on behalf of the family.
At sentencing, the court isn’t obligated to allow anyone on the defense side to speak except for the defendant. The court reported that it was still unclear if anyone would be speaking on Brown’s behalf.
