SEBASTOPOL, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a Northern California man who stands accused of stabbing his mother and father to death in 2015 has pleaded guilty to two counts of murder.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2kNJCFQ ) that Nathan Alexander Wilson of Sebastopol was charged with killing 66-year-old David Wilson and 60-year-old Adrianne Chapin with a sword on the property he shared with him. Authorities say he struggled for years with mental illness.

The 35-year-old was arrested in November 2015, the day after the slayings.

Under the terms of his plea, Wilson will be sentenced March 3 to 40 years to life in prison. He did not admit to special circumstances for the multiple murders. That would have prevented him from someday being released on parole. His attorney was not immediately available for comment.
