Yeah, he waited to the last minute hoping someone would offer him a plea bargain, I guarantee it. I do hope he gets the maximum and that the judge shows him no mercy. "Should I just admit to what I've done"?...well yes! WHAT A LOSER! Why would you make the family go through all this after you killed their parents? At least he should have done the decent thing and plead guilty from the beginning.

Now he needs to do one more decent thing...divorce his wife so she's not attached to this sponge anymore.

Remembered hearing about this. Saw that he got 16yrs. Is that without parole (I hope)? Does he have children with his wife?

I'm not sure if he gets parole or not. From what I know, the wife has kids but they aren't his. I know he at least has one child with somebody, but no idea if there are others.
