Man who killed teacher in 2000 says he's changed

Posted: Updated:

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man who fatally shot his teacher in 2000 has served over a decade in prison and is now focused on being a contributing member of the community.

Scott Favreau pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting of Vicki Campbell-Beer, a Lyndon teacher. He was 17 at the time and had been taken in as a foster child by her. Then-14-year-old Tashia Beer, the teacher's stepdaughter, also was charged with murder, accused of persuading Favreau to kill Campbell-Beer. She has served prison time.

Favreau, who was released from prison in April 2013, tells the Brattleboro Reformer what he did was horrible, but he's not that person anymore. He works at a local business and recently moved in with his girlfriend and her 7-year-old son.
