Man Pleads Guilty in Del. Double Homicide


WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A man has pleaded to second-degree murder in the slayings of 2 Philadelphia men during a drug deal.

Twenty-five-year-old Claude Lacombe entered the plea Thursday in the deaths of 23-year-old Keifer Wright and 20-year-old Michael Thomas.

Wright and Thomas were shot and killed on Decl. 26, 2011. They were to sell a half-pound of marijuana to Claude Lacombe's brother, Paul Lacombe.

But prosecutors say Paul Lacombe demanded the marijuana without paying and shot the two men.

Paul Lacombe pleaded guilty but mentally ill to first-degree murder in the killings.

The Lacombe brothers will be sentenced in June.
