Dirt bag Convicted Sex Offender John Gardner Pleads Guilty to Murder of two Teens
31 year old, previously convicted sex offender John Gardner has pleaded guilty to the murders of 14 year-old Amber Dubois and 17 year-old Chelsea King. After John Albert Gardner was charged in the rape and murder of Chelsea King, it baceme rather obvious that there was a connection to the death of Amber Dubois when her body was suddenly recovered after being missing since February 13, 2009.
Sex offender John Albert Gardner pleaded guilty Friday to murdering two teenage girls in San Diego County after prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.
He also pleaded guilty to attempting to rape another woman who was jogging in San Diego last year.
According to the District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, Gardner led authorities to the skeletal remains of Dubois two days after authorities charged him with the murder of King.
Gardner was arrested three days after King disappeared. He initially pleaded not guilty to her killing.
In a surprising turn, Gardner admitted Friday to kidnapping, raping and stabbing Dubois. He also admitted dragging King to a remote area where he raped, strangled and buried her.
After the remains of Dubois were discovered, Escondido police and crime lab technicians worked round-the-clock to find evidence linking Gardner to her murder, but Dumanis said they did not succeed.
