Trappler faces murder charges in trial

SCHUYLER COUNTY—The jury trial for Alice Trappler, Addison, began last Friday, April 19, in Schuyler County Court.
Trappler faces five charges in connection with the April 2012, death of Beaver Dams resident Daniel Bennett. Schuyler District Attorney Chief Assistant Matthew Hayden explained she faces: two counts of murder in the second degree, one count of burglary in the first degree, one count of burglary in the second degree, and one count of conspiracy in the second degree.
Hayden said the jury was selected last Monday and Tuesday, April 15 and 16. He explained the trial is expected to take several weeks. Hayden said, “there’s a lot of evidence, a lot of witnesses.”
Authorities previously explained Bennett was Trappler’s former boyfriend. The investigation also revealed two other people allegedly connected to the murder. Days after the death, law enforcement initially arrested Nathan Hand, Corning, for murder in the second degree for his part in the crime.
That same day, authorities pursued Hand’s step-brother Thomas Borden, Corning, in connection with the death. Officials explained Borden was Trappler’s former husband. Law Enforcement reported a chase with the suspect ended in Borden jumping in front of a SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) commuter train and later succumbed to his injuries.
