Man Faces Sentencing In Michigan In 1972 Slayings

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, Mich. (AP) - A man faces sentencing in Michigan after entering a plea agreement in three slayings from 1972.

Laurence Lamont pleaded no contest late last year to three counts of second-degree murder. A no-contest plea isn't an admission of guilt, but is treated as such for sentencing, which is scheduled for Thursday in Monroe County Circuit Court.

Lamont was charged in the deaths of three men in Monroe County, near the Ohio boundary. Police say the victims were abducted in Michigan and Ohio before being killed in Michigan. The plea agreement avoids a trial, which had been expected to be complicated because of how much time passed since the killings.

Another suspect died behind bars. Lamont already was in prison in Ohio for decades for other crimes.
