A Michigan man was convicted of murdering a young woman on Friday. A judge agreed with the prosecution Andrew John Lawrence Lafey22, shot Gracyn-Michael Kay-Candace Brickley18, twice with a .22 rifle, then recorded him kicking her for nearly 11 minutes until she died, loud WILX and other local news agencies.

“The circumstances of Grace Brickley’s death were appalling,” said the Barry County Attorney Julie Nakfoor Pratt said in a statement obtained by NBC affiliate Lansing. “The defendant’s video caught him stomping and taunting Grace Brickley for nearly 11 minutes. The torture seen in the video took place after Lafey shot Grace Brickley twice, causing multiple injuries to her face and breaking her jaw.”

Lacey buried Brickley under the snow after the February 16, 2021 murder in Maple Grove Township and went back to a nearby home where he showed his friends the footage, prosecutors said. Those friends and his father reported him to the police the next morning, authorities said.

“501 has a walk-in with a [name redacted] in his office and said that an Andrew Lafey may have shot a woman with a .22 and buried her in the ditch sometime last night,” said dispatch audio obtained by Grand Rapids television station WOOD in a Feb. 18, 2021 report.

The witness reportedly said he was shown footage of Lafey stamping on a woman’s chest.

“Apparently Andrew told his father this last night and they were trying to gather more information,” the news outlet said.

Lafey was soon arrested at the house near where authorities say he killed Brickley. He often stayed there, authorities said.

Lafey opted for a bench trial rather than face a jury. Judge Michael Schipper convicted of one each of first degree murder, torture and possession of a firearm by a criminal and three counts of firearms for felonies.

The verdict is set for June 9th.
