Police officers and family have dedicated
a memorial to a Bismarck officer killed in the line of duty.
The memorial plaque to Steve Kenner was dedicated Sunday, on the
one-year anniversary of his death. The veteran officer was shot and
killed while responding to a domestic dispute on July 8, 2011.
The man who shot Kenner, Steven Bannister, has entered an Alford
plea to murder. The plea is treated as a conviction for sentencing
purposes and Bannister could face life in prison without parole.
