Indiana man pleads guilty to killing 3 teenage boys

CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — A man pleaded guilty Monday to killing three teenagers and burying their bodies in the basement of his rented home.

In exchange for his plea, David Edward Maust, 51, will receive three sentences of life without parole.

Police said the three victims — Nicholas James, 19, James Raganyi, 16, and Michael Dennis, 13 — were attracted by beer and marijuana that Maust had given them.

James' girlfriend reported him missing in May 2003. Raganyi and Dennis disappeared four months later, after leaving notes they were running away from home.
