CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to killing a former girlfriend and her stepsister in a New Jersey home almost a year ago.

The Cherry Hill Courier Post reports that 45-year-old Mark Lyczak also acknowledged having stabbed a third woman during the Dec. 30, 2017 attack in Collingswood.

Camden County prosecutors said Monday that a plea agreement recommends that the defendant be sentenced to 47-year prison terms for the murders of 48-year-old Colleen Brownell and 41-year-old Alysia McCloskey.

Prosecutors said agreement calls for a 10-year term for the aggravated assault, with the three sentences running concurrently. Sentencing is scheduled Jan. 11.

Authorities said Brownell had left her Cherry Hill home to live with McCloskey due to fear of the defendant, who was under a court order to stay away from them.
