Murder Suspect Pleads No Contest Again

WAILUKU (KHNL) - A Maui man has pleaded no contest a second time to second-degree murder for the fatal shooting of a friend.

Robert Henneman Junior entered the plea Tuesday and was sentenced again to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

Under an agreement with prosecutors, he could be released from prison as early as December of next year.

Henneman initially pleaded no contest to the 1991 killing of David Gibbins.

In 1992, Henneman was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole.  He was allowed to withdraw the plea in 2004.

Henneman decided to plead no contest again in order to avoid a second trial and to take advantage of the plea agreement.
