A Mishawaka 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, for the killing of Beth Kubsch and her ex-husband’s son, Aaron Milewski, 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.

This piece of human vermin should have been executed with extreme prejudice. What a waste of a jail cell and air that he gets life considering his victims got death.
