CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A man charged with killing his former girlfriend and shooting her boyfriend in Cheyenne in April 2015 has pleaded guilty to two reduced charges as part of a plea agreement.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (bit.ly/2fSY5hy) 28-year-old Daniel Guajardo faces a sentence of 20 years to life in prison for killing 26-year-old Janessa Spencer and injuring 24-year-old Samuel Cook. Guajardo pleaded guilty to Friday to second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder. His trial had been scheduled to start on Monday.

District Judge Catherine Rogers made sure Guajardo understood that the plea agreement did not put a limit on the prosecution’s sentencing recommendations.

Guajardo also pleaded guilty Friday to three counts that alleged he helped a fellow jail inmate assault another inmate in July 2015.

Rogers ordered a pre-sentence investigation. A sentencing date has not been set.
