Ingersoll Rejects Plea Deal, Will Face Trial

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – The man accused of killing a Utica woman in 2007 was in Oneida County Court this morning.

Craig Ingersoll, 30, rejected a plea offer of 22 years to life in prison.

The case will now go to trial, with Ingersoll facing 25 years to life if convicted.

He’s charged with second-degree murder in the death of Jennifer Bennett, whose body was found behind the Deerfield Fire House.

Though the judge mentioned Ingersoll’s oral and written admissions and extensive evidence against him, his defense attorney, Luke Nebush, says he may have an argument against the DNA taken from the scene.

“Right now we have a very strong argument against the DNA that was secured from the scene,” Nebush said.

Ingersoll is being held in the Oneida County jail without bail. Motions will be filed on July 23rd.
