A man has pleaded guilty to murder in the shootings of two men outside a book warehouse near Philadelphia where he was formerly employed. Thirty-three-year-old Robert Diamond entered the plea on Monday. Prosecutors have agreed not to oppose having Bucks County Judge Rea Boylan rather than a jury decide the penalty.

Diamond acknowledged he shot and killed 46-year-old Angel Guadalupe of Falls and 52-year-old Reginald Woodson of Willingboro, N.J., on Aug. 1. They were shot in the parking lot of a Simon & Schuster book warehouse about 20 miles north of Philadelphia, where he had been fired months earlier.

Boylan scheduled testimony Tuesday from police and other witnesses, to be followed by a penalty phase. Bucks County District Attorney Michelle Henry and defense attorney Barnaby Wittels declined to comment on the plea.
