TIFTON, GA (WALB) - A south Georgia mass murderer pleads guilty in the slayings of six Hispanic men in Tifton in 2005.

Jamie Underwood will be sentenced in December for the murders. The state is seeking the death penalty, so a separate sentencing trial is needed.

Friday, Underwood got 120 years in prison without parole after pleading guilty to three counts of armed robbery.

His trial for the home invasions and killings was delayed more than a year, because the state's public defenders' office was broke.
