CORYDON, Ind. (AP) - A man has admitted murder and felony murder charges in the 2013 slayings of a southern Indiana couple under a deal with prosecutors in which he’ll avoid the death penalty.

Lawyers for 21-year-old Kevin “Drew” Schuler of Greenville entered guilty pleas for him Wednesday in the slayings of 70-year-old Gary Henderson and 57-year-old Asenath “Senie” Arnold at the couple’s home near New Salisbury, about 20 miles west of Louisville, Kentucky.

A judge will determine if Schuler faces life in prison without parole or a different term when he’s sentenced Jan. 30.

Co-defendant 21-year-old Austin Scott of New Albany was sentenced to life in prison without parole in September after pleading guilty to the same charges.

Schuler faced a January trial in which, if convicted, he face a possible death sentence.
