An Indianapolis man has agreed to plead guilty to four killings during a crime spree more than three years ago that targeted drug and gambling houses in Indianapolis and Evansville.

In return, federal prosecutors will drop their demand that 28-year-old Jarvis Brown face the death penalty.

If U.S. District Judge Richard Young accepts the plea agreement, Brown could be sentenced to five consecutive life sentences plus 20 years when he is sentenced June 30.

At the time Brown and two other men were indicted in 2006, prosecutors said that during an 18-day period Brown and two other men committed a series of robberies and attempted robberies of drug dealers and gambling houses that resulted in the deaths of four people and the wounding of eight others.
