HUSER CASE: Sentencing Set For Next Week

An Iowa man who hired a hitman in a murder plot will be sentenced next week.

Vernon Juser will go before a judge one week from Tuesday.

In December, a jury convicted Huser of first degree murder. It’s the second time Huser has been convicted of hiring a hitman to kill his wife’s lover, Lance Morningstar, in 2004.

The guilty verdict in his first trial was thrown out on appeal.

The judge has denied Huser’s attorney’s request for a new trial.

First degree murder convictions carry a mandatory sentence of life in prison in Iowa.
