BOISE, Idaho — A 24-year-old Boise man accused of shooting two people inside a Boise mobile home has pleaded guilty to a first-degree murder charge.
Carlos Sandoval apparently struck a deal with prosecutors in exchange for the plea. Two other charges - aggravated battery and use of a deadly weapon in commission of a felony - were dropped at Monday's hearing.
Sandoval was arrested after the shooting on August 2, which killed 45-year-old Antoine Jones and injured a woman. The Ada County coroner said Jones died of multiple gunshot wounds.
The suspect's sister described the Jones as their stepfather.
At his arraignment hearing, prosecutors said the victim had dated Sandoval's mom who died more than a year ago, and that Sandoval lived in the mobile home with Jones.
According to prosecutors, Sandoval had confessed to police that he had planned the murder, and admitted he would do it again.
He is due back in court for a sentencing hearing on January 23.
