KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- A Kansas City, Kansas, man pleaded guilty on Monday to four counts of first-degree murder in connection to a 2009 quadruple homicide.

Adrian Burks, 40, pleaded guilty in connection to the June 22, 2009, shooting deaths of 66-year-old James Warren, 21-year-old Amanda Remmers, 41-year-old Peggy Castleberry, Castleberry's 3-year-old daughter, Juanita Castleberry-Bess.

Burks was arrested shortly after the killings following a police chase that started in Kansas City, Missouri, and ended in Kansas City, Kansas.

According to authorities, the guilty plea will allow Burks to escape a possible death-penalty sentence. Prosecutors say that they will ask for a life sentence with a hard 50 on each count - meaning that Burks would not be eligible for parole for at least 50 years.

Sentencing is scheduled for October 1st.
