Arkadelphia triple-murder suspect pleads guilty

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (KTHV) – The man charged with the murders of an Arkadelphia man and his two young step-daughters will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Riakos Lizana changed his plea Friday morning to guilty of three counts of capital murder and one count of aggravated residential robbery. The Clark County Circuit Clerk's Office says he was sentenced to four consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole.

LIzana was charged with capital murder in the Dec. 6 deaths of 4-year-old Marley Crutchfield, 6-year-old Adiele Crutchfield and the girls' stepfather, Bobby Jean "Chino" Galbraith.

Police have said a baby was also found unharmed at an Arkadelphia home where the bodies of the girls and stepfather were found.
