Report: Suspect to plead in family slaying

June 6, 2008 6:57:01 AM PDT
A prosecutor says a Lancaster teen accused of killing a classmate and the other boy's parents is going to plead guilty in the case later this month. Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman would not tell the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal what Alec Kreider is expected to plead guilty to, or whether it's part of a plea agreement.

Kreider is accused of stabbing to death Kevin Haines and his parents Thomas and Lisa Haines inside their suburban home in May 2007.

Authorities have said Kevin Haines was the intended target. Kreider was arrested after his father informed police that his son confessed to the killings.

The Haines' daughter, Maggie, was also home at the time but was not attacked.
