CHARDON, OHIO (AP) -- T.J. Lane has entered guilty pleas to six charges in the Chardon High School shootings last February.

Lane pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of felonious assault. He also pleaded guilty to a firearm specification on each count.

He could now face life in prison without parole.

Judge David Fuhry has set sentencing for March 19 at 9:30 a.m.

Lane's plea comes one-day before the one-year mark of the shootings that left Demetrius Hewlin, Daniel Parmertor and Russell King Jr. dead. Nick Walczak, Nate Mueller and Joy Rickers were wounded in the shootings but survived.

The plea came after extensive questioning by the judge in which Lane said he understood his actions and that he could remain in prison until his death if so sentenced.
