HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston man has pleaded guilty to capital murder for the shooting deaths of his three children in 2010 when he was locked in a bitter custody dispute with the children's mother.
Fifty-year-old Mohammad Goher entered his pleas Wednesday in exchange for a sentence of life without parole.
Court records show Goher admitted to shooting 14-year-old Saeedah, 12-year-old Saeed and 7-year-old Aisha while they slept at this apartment in September 2010.
The Houston Chronicle cites investigators in reporting that Goher and his wife were divorcing and waging a custody battle when he killed the children.
After shooting them he turned the gun on himself but survived a gunshot wound to the head.
