GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A 21-year-old man has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of two people in Taylors more than three years ago.

Multiple media outlets reported that Manuel Granados of Swannanoa, North Carolina, entered the plea Monday in Greenville.

Granados was originally charged with two counts of murder and two counts of possession of a weapon during a crime.

Eighteen-year-old Amber Daniel and 30-yearold Christopher Porcoro were found shot to death April 3, 2011.

Granados faced up to life in prison if he had been convicted of murder. He faces a sentence of up to 30 years in prison on the voluntary manslaughter pleas.

His sentencing has been delayed until after the trial of a co-defendant, 26-year-old James Michael Johnson. A third person pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter last year.
