Man suspected of plotting murder being held on $300,000 bond


Follow The Republic:


Investigators declined to release any new details in a probe that led to the arrest Friday of a Jennings County man accused of conspiracy to commit murder.

Daniel Rogers, 45, of North Vernon continued to be held on that initial charge at the Jennings County Jail in North Vernon on Monday afternoon.

Jennings County Prosecutor Alan Marshal said he expected to have the report of the investigation of the incident that led to Rogers’ arrest on his desk sometime late Monday or early today.

Marshal said he would then likely make a decision about a formal charge or charges against Rogers in the next couple of days.

Rogers was being held at the jail on $300,000 bond.

Rogers initially refused to talk with investigators after his arrest at 8:30 p.m. Friday. He instead asked that his attorney be present before he talked with investigators, according to a news release issued by North Vernon Officer Justin Black, the department’s public relations officer. Black is off work and won’t be back before Wednesday, a clerk at the police station said Monday.

The clerk also said there was nothing new to release about the investigation.

The investigation that led to Rogers’ arrest began when police received information about illegal activity on Friday, Black said.

As part of that investigation, they also received a warrant to search a residence in the 100 block of West Walnut Street.

During that search, police seized computer equipment along with miscellaneous paperwork related to the investigation, Black said.

Specific details on the case, including the intended victim, have not been released by

investigators. Black, who

described the matter as an ongoing investigation, said more information could be released today.

North Vernon detectives Brandy Blevins and Ivory Sandefur are leading the investigation along with Lt. Randall Marshall. Black and officers Andrew Richmond, Todd Beam and Craig Kipper assisted with the search of the residence.
