Satan-worshipper killed two men because it was ‘what god expected him to do’

A man who shot dead two men says he was 'compelled by Satan' to do so.

Adam Rosenberg from Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania pleaded guilty but mentally ill to two counts of first-degree murder in the killings of Christian Moore-Rouse and Jeremy Dentel.

The 23-year-old had reportedly been diagnosed with schizophrenia and psychotic disorder and wanted to become a serial killer.

Moore-Rouse was 22 and had reportedly been a friend of the killer.

But on December 21, 2019, prosecutors said Rosenberg shot Moore-Rouse in the back of his head, before hiding his body off the road near the end of his driveway. The body was recovered on March 3, 2020.

He reportedly contacted Dentel through a dating app before shooting and killing him on February 15, 2020.

In April, Dr Sara West, a forensic psychiatrist, told the court that the only reason Rosenberg did not become a serial killer was “because he got caught".

She revealed some disturbing insight into what she believed may have driven Rosenberg to kill telling the court that he believed it was “what god expected him to do.”

She reportedly said that Rosenberg had urges to kill, and that the more he killed, the closer he felt to his god.

“He defined his god as Satan,” West told the court. She said he was able to resist killing three times, but killed Dentel to make up to “his god” for not killing on the previous occasions.

Moore-Rouse’s mother objected to the plea because it doesn't call for the sentences to be served consecutively.

But Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Bruce Beemer said the plea was accepted because he believed it ensured Rosenberg would spend his life in prison.

He sentenced on Friday (June 3) to two concurrent terms of life in prison without parole.
