Defendant in 2022 Rimini slaying trial guilty on 2 of 3 counts

The jurors in the trial of Brandon Beckman, accused of shooting, killing and robbing Michael Biggs near a Rimini campsite in January 2022, found Beckman guilty Wednesday on two of the three charges against him.

Beckman was also charged with one count of deliberate homicide, of which the jurors found him not guilty.

The 12 jurors began deliberations just before 6 p.m. Tuesday and entered the verdict about 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Brandon Beckman, found guilty Wednesday in Lewis and Clark County District Court of robbery and accountability to the death of Michael Biggs, embraces his attorney Amanda Gordon, right.


Beckman, 36, and Robert John Harvel, 32, were alleged to have driven Biggs to Moose Creek Campground near Rimini under the false pretense of a meth deal, then shooting and killing Biggs and taking his money.

The state also charged Beckman with an alternative count, that Beckman helped commit the robbery of Biggs who was killed in the process and therefore Beckman is culpable in Biggs’ death.
