ADMITTED COCAINE ADDICT PLEADS GUILTY IN SLAYING

Admitted cocaine addict William Hauser admitted Tuesday that he killed an acquaintance to get $300 to finance his drug habit.

Under a plea deal made two months ago, Hauser, 37, pleaded guilty before State Supreme Court Justice Mario J. Rossetti. He was charged with second-degree murder in the April 2 bludgeoning of Harold Lorenz, 55, in Lorenz's Connecticut Street home.

The plea deal leaves Hauser facing a mandatory prison term of 15 to 25 years to life. But the arrangement will limit the prison time faced by Sue Ann Schnapp Privitera, 34, Hauser's pregnant accomplice.
