ROSEBURG, Ore. – The teenager accused of killing his foster mother, foster sister and biological sister in 2017 has pleaded guilty.

Kevin Adams, now 18, pleaded guilty to multiple counts of first-degree murder on Tuesday.

KEZI 9 News had a reporter in the courtroom.

Because of Oregon law, Adams could be out of prison when he’s 35, and that’s not sitting well with the family. He could also get a second-look hearing in seven years to evaluate his behavior.

He will get credit for time served.
