MOUND CITY, Kan. — A Pittsburg man has pleaded no contest to two counts of first-degree premeditated murder in the deaths of two relatives.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says 32-year-old David Patrick McNabb on Wednesday also pleaded no contest to felony theft and interference with law enforcement.

McNabb was charged in the November 2016 deaths of his uncle, 65-year-old Kenneth McNabb, and 87-year-old Betty McNabb, Kenneth’s mother.

The Pittsburg Morning-Sun reports the victims were reported missing from rural Pleasanton on Nov. 11, 2016. Their bodies were found buried on rural property west of Pittsburg Nov. 15.

Sentencing is scheduled for September 5.
