Guilty plea in Grant Co. triple homicide

EPHRATA, Wash. (AP) — A 25-year-old man who pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree murder for a 2009 shooting in Mattawa faces more than 38 years in prison when he is sentenced Feb. 14 in in Ephrata.

 The Columbia Basin Herald reports Grant County prosecutors lowered the charges from first-degree murder in a plea deal with J. Guadalupe Martinez-Lopez.

He said he shot the men in retaliation for a rape.

Grant County Sheriff’s detectives think Martinez-Lopez used the same gun to rob a store of beer and money before sitting down with his girlfriend and two others for dinner before his arrest.
