Seaman jury rules on 2 of 3 charges

Posted: Tuesday, November 21, 2000

KODIAK -- A Nikiski man has been found guilty on two charges related to the 1996 disappearance of a Kenai woman.

A Kodiak jury on Monday morning found Rocky Seaman guilty of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and conspiracy to commit murder after more than two days of deliberations.

The jury is scheduled to resume deliberations on the murder charge against Seaman this morning.

Seaman is accused of murdering Loreese "Loree" Hennagin, who has been missing since October 1996. Her body has never been found.

The trial began with jury selection on Oct. 19; closing arguments were heard last week. The jury began deliberations Wednesday afternoon. The jury did not meet over the weekend.

It rendered its guilty verdicts about 9:30 a.m. Monday. Afterward, Superior Court Judge Donald Hopwood again reminded jurors they each must agree with the verdict on each of the charges and sent them back for a verdict on the murder charge.

Shortly before 10 a.m., the jury left the courtroom to continue its deliberations.
