Man who killed 3 in Maryland expected to take plea

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

The Washington Post reports 63-year-old Eulalio Tordil is due for a plea hearing Tuesday in court in Maryland's Montgomery County and court documents signed 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.
