Man who killed 3 in Maryland expected to take plea

Posted 9:59 a.m. Thursday

— A man charged with fatally shooting his estranged wife and two other people in Maryland is expected to plead guilty to killing the two strangers.

The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/2pGvT5y ) 63-year-old Eulalio Tordil is due for a plea hearing Tuesday in court in Maryland's Montgomery County and court documents indicate he intends to take a guilty plea. The agreement is not considered final until a judge accepts the deal, and Tordil could still back out.

Tordil still faces charges in Prince George's County, where he is charged with killing his estranged wife.

Authorities say Tordil, a federal security officer, killed his wife on May 5 of last year, then fatally shot the two other people the following day during apparent carjacking attempts.
