MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - A 30-year-old northern Idaho man has pleaded guilty to killing his adoptive mother, his landlord and a fast-food restaurant manager in the north Idaho community of Moscow last year.

John Lee of Moscow entered Alford pleas to three counts of first-degree murder and one count of aggravated battery in a Latah County District Court on Friday. That means he acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict, without admitting guilt.

KREM-TV in Spokane reports (https://goo.gl/cROazr ) that as part of the plea deal, prosecutors do not intend to seek the death penalty against him.

Lee, formerly known as Kane Grzebielski, is to be sentenced May 24.

Killed in the Jan. 10, 2015 shooting spree were 61-year-old Terri Grzebielski, 76-year-old David Trail and 47-year-old Belinda Niebuhr, an Arby’s manager. A Seattle man, Michael Chin, was wounded.
