Chapel Hill teen pleads guilty in parents' 2005 shooting deaths

CHAPEL HILL (AP) -- A teenager has pleaded guilty to killing his parents and hiding the bodies inside their home. Adam Sapikowski pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of second-degree murder and one count of obstruction of justice in the 2005 shooting deaths of his parents, James and Allison Sapikowski. Police said their bodies had been in the house for weeks before they were discovered wrapped in blankets behind a barricaded door. Police also said both had been shot several times at close range with a .410-caliber shotgun. On the weekend of their deaths, police said Adam Sapikowski had a party at the house after attending his junior prom at Durham Academy. He then checked into a Durham motel, where he stayed occasionally for two weeks until relatives asked police to check the house. The judge hasn't decided whether to accept the plea.
