A Maine man who used a baseball bat to beat his mother, his grandparents and his grandparents' caretaker to death in Massachusetts in 2017 has pleaded guilty.
Prosecutors say 26-year-old Orion Krause, of Rockport, Maine, was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 25 years after pleading guilty to four counts of second-degree murder.
Krause had originally faced four counts of first-degree murder but admitted to the lesser charges under a plea deal with prosecutors.
The victims killed in Groton were Elizabeth Krause, Frank Lackey, Elizabeth Lackey and Bertha Mae Parker. Krause apologized in court.
