WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – A man accused of killing two custodians at a South Florida school in 2013 has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty.
Javier Burgos, 57, pleaded guilty last week to two counts of first-degree murder with a firearm in the deaths of Ted Orama, 56, of Greenacres, and Christopher Marshall, 48, of West Palm Beach.
Their bodies were found on the morning of June 19, 2013, by another custodian at Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in downtown West Palm Beach.
A Palm Beach County judge on Monday accepted the terms of the plea deal and sentenced Burgos to life in prison.
Burgos was named a suspect in the murders in 2014, but he fled to Colombia. He was extradited back to the U.S. in May and confessed to the murders.
