Serial killer pleads guilty, gets life sentences for Indiana murders

Serial killer pleads guilty, gets life sentences for Indiana murdersA confessed serial killer pleaded guilty in an Indiana court on Friday to the strangulation deaths of seven women as part of a plea agreement that allows him to avoid the death penalty. Darren Vann, 47, will be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for each of seven counts of murder, after agreeing to plead guilty. Prosecutors had previously pursued death sentences but withdrew them after the victims’ families decided that they preferred that Vann spend the rest of his life in jail rather than be executed, Bernard Carter, Lake County prosecutor, said in a phone interview on Friday.
