Man convicted for 1993 murders arrested for second time in a week

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Three days had gone by before David Benner, 38, of Utica, was arrested again, this time for allegedly taking stolen property to a pawn shop.

According to Oneida County Sheriff's Investigators, Benner had taken property to a local pawn shop where he sold the property. In order to complete the transaction, Benner was required to complete paperwork at the pawn shop.

An investigation revealed that the property Benner had sold to the pawn shop was stolen and that the paperwork he completed was done so using false information.

Benner was charged with criminal possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor, and first-degree falsifying business records.

Benner is being held at the Oneida County Jail without bail.

Earlier this week, Benner was picked up on a warrant for allegedly taking a ring from a New Hartford home back in December.

In the mid-90's, he was convicted of killing two roommates and burning their bodies in the trunk of a car in the Riverside Mall parking lot.
