A habitual criminal has pleaded guilty to the deaths of four people in Colorado and was sentenced to 70 years in prison.
Scott Lee Kimball faced second-degree murder charges in the deaths of his uncle Terry Kimball and acquaintances Jennifer Marcum, Leann Emry and Kaysi McLeod.
They all disappeared in 2003 and 2004.
Kimball led authorities to the remains of Terry Kimball and Emry and McLeod’s body was found in northwest Colorado.
He earlier agreed to plead guilty to second-degree murder if the remains of the three could be found, but Marcum’s have not been recovered.
Boulder County prosecutors said authorities agreed to the plea bargain so the victim’s families could have closure.
