LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - An East Texas man has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty in the shooting deaths of his former girlfriend and her 22-year-old daughter.

The Lufkin Daily News (https://bit.ly/1pcigWe ) reports 38-year-old Kevin McKelvey pleaded guilty Monday to capital murder and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Thirty-nine-year-old Teresa McCoy and her daughter, Ca’Shaunika Hoyle, were killed in August 2013 while trying to retrieve McCoy’s belongings from a mobile home. Hoyle was killed in the home while McCoy shot to death trying to escape in a vehicle along with her 11-year-old twins.

McKelvey also pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault for injuries the twins suffered when the vehicle’s window was shot out.

He confessed to the killings in a jailhouse interview with the newspaper.
