A man charged with the stabbing death of a Bellevue family last fall pled guilty on Thursday morning.
Craig Garber is set to serve three consecutive life sentences and would have to serve 153 years before being eligible for parole.
According to investigators, 71-year-old Marylea Jordan, 48-year-old Michelle Pinkowski and her teenage son, Jonathan Culpepper, 14, were all stabbed to death in their Beech Bend Drive home by their neighbor Garber.
Upon their arrival to the scene, police reported Garber answered the door to the family's home covered in blood. He also told responding officers to kill him.
Garber has remained jail on a $1 million bond since his arrest.
