Man Pleads Guilty to Slaying of 2 Young Girls and Fiancee

Posted:
OKFUSKEE COUNTY, OK -- A man accused of killing two young Oklahoma girls and his fiancee has pleaded guilty in court.

Kevin Sweat pleaded guilty Thursday in Okfuskee County to three counts of first-degree murder. 

He'd been scheduled to go on trial Monday.

The mysterious deaths of 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker and 13-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker went cold shortly after their bodies were found in 2008.

The girls were fatally shot as they walked down a road near Weleetka.

Sweat wasn't arrested until after being questioned in his fiancée Ashley Taylor's death three years later.  


Prosecutors had sought the death penalty against Sweat but dropped plans after he agreed to waive his right to a jury trial.
