Handyman charged in death of interior designer pleads guilty

- Prosecutors say a handyman accused of stabbing a Detroit-area interior designer has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says an agreement for Monday's plea calls for David Corzilius to be sentenced to 30-60 years in prison for the death of Daniel Clancy of Grosse Pointe Farms. Other charges are being dismissed in the case.

Clancy was stabbed in March and died in April.

Police say Clancy was found on the sidewalk, brutally beaten with three stab wounds to his neck outside of his home on Voltaire Place, which is near the intersection of Kercheval Avenue and Kerby Road.

Corzilius told police that he became upset because Clancy had touched his buttocks. Corzilius' lawyer has said he had a history of drug problems and mental health issues. Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 22.
