PUNTA GORDA, Florida (AP) - A man who is serving time for murder will plead guilty to six additional slayings.

According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Jeremy Sly told a Charlotte County court on Wednesday that he will plead guilty.

Prosecutors agree not to seek the death penalty. Sly will receive consecutive life sentences.

The 41-year-old Sly is serving a life sentence in state prison for a different murder. The new charges stem from the slayings of a retired couple in Port Charlotte and a North Port family with children on the same night in 1991.
