CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP) - A 31-year-old man has admitted to killing his girlfriend and her 7-year-old son inside their suburban Buffalo apartment last year.

Shane Stevenson of Cheektowaga (cheek-tuh-WAH’-guh) pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of murder in the September deaths of 30-year-old Raina Voll and her son, Leo Klinger.

The two were found strangled inside an apartment complex after Voll’s 2-year-old child was found in a stroller a short distance away.

Stevenson isn’t the father of either child.

Police say the killings occurred during a “domestic situation.”

Stevenson faces up to 50 years to life in prison when he’s sentenced in May.

Information on his attorney wasn’t immediately available.
