Parts of Brockman Conviction Overturned

(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Court of Appeals has overturned parts of the conviction of a La Porte County man accused of reckless homicide.


Last year Jesse Brockman was found guilty of multiple drug-related offenses related to the 2019 overdose deaths of 26-year-old Christina Rossetti and 29-year-old Zachary Granzo. The trio were sharing a Michigan City motel room, where the methamphetamine overdose took place. While conducting a wellness check, police found Brockman slumped in a chair with the two dead bodies nearby. He told authorities they had overdosed about ten hours earlier.


Even though Brockman allegedly admitted to police that the meth was his, the appeals court determined that he was not solely to blame. The court overturned six felony counts related to methamphetamine dealing and causing death.


But Brockman did not wiggle off the hook completely. He was still found guilty of failure to report human remains, as well as two counts of dealing another drug that also contributed to the deaths.
