Rodney Denk, 40, signed a plea agreement on May 30 admitting he killed 16-year-old Amy Weidner. Denk was arrested 11 months ago after a palm print taken from a 1997 arrest was found to match the one found at Weidner’s home. She had been beaten, sexually assaulted and strangled inside her Indianapolis home.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns State Director Peter Luster said supporters need to call their offices every day.
