Tavares gets life in prison

His own father wanted him executed, calling him "pure evil.'' But Daniel T. Tavares Jr. has reached a plea deal with Washington prosecutors that will allow him to avoid the death penalty.

Prosecutors said today at a news conference that Tavares, 41, who was accused of jumping bail in Massachusetts and traveling to Washington where he killed a young couple, will plead guilty to the two murders and waive all of his rights to an appeal, in exchange for a sentence of life in prison.

Good. I don't believe in the death penalty.
