A western Michigan man has pleaded guilty in the fatal stabbings of his housemate and another man in separate incidents. WOOD-TV reports that sentencing is scheduled Sept. 3 for 37-year-old George Yzaguirre. Court records show that Yzaguirre entered the pleas Aug. 4 to felony murder and first-degree murder in the deaths of 63-year-old Ed Fuller and 34-year-old David Isner. Police said workers at a Home Depot store called 911 in December to report that Yzaguirre walked in and said he wanted to turn himself in for two killings. Isner was stabbed in late November. He had shared a Kentwood duplex with Yzaguirre. Fuller was found dead at his mobile home in Byron Township, south of Grand Rapids. He had been robbed.
