LIMA — One week after he was scheduled to enter a plea during an emotional hearing for family of his victim, Demonta Rogers pleaded guilty to a charge over the killing of a man last year outside a bar.
Rogers, 24, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter with a gun. He faces up to 14 years in prison when he is sentenced,which is scheduled for May 5 before Judge David Cheney.
There was no yelling or emotional outbursts Friday — just a calm and mundane hearing in which Rogers sat in a black suit politely answering questions Cheney asked. The judge ordered a background check on Rogers, which he will use to help him determine a sentence.
