Murderer enters guilty plea, will be sentenced next month

Michael Joseph Mitchelmore will be sentenced next month after pleading guilty Friday to two counts of second-degree murder from 2005.

Mitchelmore, a 29-year-old from Glen Haven, was scheduled to have a six-week trial on the two murder charges starting Nov. 2, but pleaded guilty to both counts in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Halifax Friday morning.

Mitchelmore pleaded guilty to the killings of Adam Eisenhauer, 26, of Glen Haven, and Tyler Sampson, 25, of Boutiliers Point. The bodies of Sampson and Eisenhauer were discovered Aug. 14, 2005.

A delivery driver found Sampson unconscious on the street in front of Eisenhauer’s house at 41 Tanner Frederick Rd.

Sampson died on the way to hospital, while Eisenhauer was later found dead in his house. Police have not said how the two men were killed.

Mitchelmore is scheduled to be sentenced in late November. A second-degree murder conviction carries with it an automatic life sentence, with the presiding judge to determine parole eligibility.
