A prosecutor says a Waynesboro man accused of a triple murder last summer is expected to enter guilty pleas next week and be sentenced to consecutive life terms.

Kevin Cleeves, 35, is charged in the July 27 shooting deaths of his estranged wife, 25-year-old Brandi Cleeves, as well as her boyfriend, 28-year-old Vincent Santucci, and Santucci's mother, 55-year-old Rosemary Holma.

Cleeves is also charged with kidnapping, interfering with the custody of a child, unlawful restraint of a minor, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful possession of a firearm. 

Cleeves is accused of shooting the three victims in the front yard of Santucci's home in the 7600 block of Anthony Road in Quincy Township, near Mont Alto.

He then fled to Ohio with his four-year-old daughter, Leia, who was present at the time of the shootings, according to authorities. Police later located Cleeves and his daughter unharmed.
