Man pleads guilty to 2 murder counts in 1998 triple-murder

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana man has pleaded guilty to two counts of murder on the same day jury selection was set to begin in his third trial in a triple-murder case .

Forty-nine-year-old Wayne Kubsch pleaded guilty Monday morning in the September 1998 murders of his wife, Beth Kubsch, and her ex-husband, Rick Milewski.

The South Bend Tribune reports that under Kubsch’s plea agreement, a third murder count in the killing of Aaron Milewski, the son of Beth Kubsch and her ex-husband, will be dropped.

All three victims were slain inside Kubsch’s Mishawaka home.

Kubsch will serve a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

He was twice convicted and sentenced to death in the killings, but both convictions were overturned on appeal. Kubsch’s third trial was set to start Feb. 25.
