A man is pleading guilty in Mississippi to another murder in a series of killings and shootings.
Alex Deaton pleaded guilty Friday in Neshoba County Circuit Court to the murder of Brenda Pinter, a 69-year-old woman who was cleaning a rural church.
Still unclear is why Deaton killed Pinter. District Attorney Steven Kilgore tells WTOK-TV that prosecutors were never able to discern a motive.
Deaton earlier pleaded guilty to killing his girlfriend in suburban Jackson, stealing her SUV and shooting a jogger.
Police say Deaton later carjacked a New Mexico couple, fled to Kansas, shot a store clerk and stole the clerk’s car. He’s pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and aggravated robbery in Kansas.
Deaton faces multiple life sentences in Mississippi and nearly 13 years in prison in Kansas.
