Guilty plea in Pr. William triple murder
A former Prince William County park ranger has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his wife and her two teenage children in a domestic dispute.
Forty-five-year-old Carrillo Dean pleaded guilty Tuesday to three counts of capital murder.
Police say Dean called to report a domestic problem at their Triangle home in February 2009. When police arrived, they found Dean's wife, Elizabeth, and her two children, Connor and Brittany Kirk, shot. All three died.
Under a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped several other felony charges and will seek life in prison when Dean sentenced April 1.
The children's father says relatives wanted prosecutors to seek the death penalty. But Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert says he did not seek death because a psychiatrist found Dean suffered from severe emotional problems.
