Teen pleads guilty in double murder

Posted: Updated:
DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

A Douglas teenager will spend the rest of his life in prison, but has avoided the death penalty after pleading guilty to murdering two women.

Shieme Brockington pleaded guilty Thursday to shooting Tasha Stiles and Angela Ortega.

Their bodies were found at the edge of a pond in February 2012.

Assistant district attorney John Rumker says DNA evidence from Brockington linked him to two unsolved rape cases in Coffee County.

Brockington plead guilty to one of those rape charges and is scheduled to enter a guilty plea to a second rape charge.
