HAUSER, Idaho — The man charged with fatally shooting a Hauser Lake resident in 2022 will be sentenced for murder in the fall.
Adam J. Bennett, 45, pleaded guilty in accordance with Alford last week to the second-degree murder of 77-year-old Dennis Rogers. Bennett also pleaded guilty to aggravated battery, unlawful possession of a firearm and two counts of aggravated assault, all felonies.
By entering Alford pleas, Bennett did not admit guilt, but acknowledged there is enough evidence to convict him of the crimes.
Prosecutors dropped charges of possession of a stolen vehicle and grand theft of a firearm in exchange for Bennett’s pleas.
