LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A man accused of killing his wife and shooting the judge who was handling their bitter divorce has reached a plea deal.
Darren Mack has pleaded guilty in a Las Vegas court to first-degree murder. He has also entered an Alford plea to an attempted murder charge, acknowledging there's enough evidence for a conviction but not admitting guilt.
Mack was on trial for the June 2006 stabbing death of his estranged wife at a townhouse in south Reno. Authorities say after the killing, Mack drove to a downtown parking garage and shot the judge through the third-floor window of his chambers. The judge survived.
