Conover To Be Tried In Hastings

A 43-year-old man charged with beating his parents to death with a baseball bat will stand trial in Hastings. Louis Conover Junior had asked that his trial be moved out of Adams County because of pre-trial publicity, but Friday, a judge refused. His trial is set to begin December 1st. Conover is accused of killing his parents, Louis and Coleen Conover, in their Hastings home in February. He is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two felony weapon-use counts. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.
