SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah man facing the death penalty in the shooting deaths of three people last year will spend the rest of his life in prison after agreeing to a plea deal.

David Fresques pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated murder Wednesday and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole on each count.

The 27-year-old did not stay in the courtroom as the victims’ families told state Judge Bruce Lubeck about the pain of losing their loved ones.

Prosecutors say Fresques went room to room in a Midvale home, shooting and killing three people: 35-year-old Omar Jarman, 34-year-old Shontay Young and 26-year-old Danielle Lucero.

No clear motive has been given for the shootings.

Fresques also pleaded guilty to shooting a fourth woman who survived.
