Man Confesses To Multiple Killings

Last updated on Friday, November 2, 2007

(LOGANSPORT) - Authorities say a man who pleaded guilty to killing a teenage girl in Cass County has confessed to two other murders but will not face charges in those deaths.

Prosecutors agreed not to press charges against Danny R. Rouse in the shooting deaths of two women more than 30 years ago as part a plea agreement. He admitted killing 16-year-old Stephanie Wagner last year under a deal that calls for him to be sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Authorities say rouse has also admitted to killing 72-year-old Nellie Mikesell and 26-year-old Lela Donnelly Hildebrandt in separate shootings in Northern Indiana's Fulton County in the mid-1970s.
