On Wednesday, Patterson appeared in the courtroom in an orange jumpsuit and began to cry as he answered "guilty" to the judge's question. He agreed that the criminal complaint was "substantially true" with regard to the crimes he pleaded guilty to.

After his arrest, Patterson confessed to being responsible for the two murders and to holding Jayme hostage in his home.

“[He] stated I know what this is about, ‘I did it,’” the criminal complaint said Patterson told Douglas County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Matt DeRosia when he was pulled over.

At the time of her kidnapping, Patterson didn’t know Jayme’s name and decided she was the girl he was going to take when he saw her getting on the school bus, according to the complaint. On his third trip to the Closs family home, he fatally shot James, who came to the door to investigate and thought Patterson was possibly a law enforcement officer.

(CNN) -- Jake Patterson, who kidnapped 13-year-old Jayme Closs and killed her parents in Wisconsin nearly six months ago, fidgeted and wept as he pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of intentional homicide and a count of kidnapping . After the hearing in Barron County Circuit Court

In the upstairs bathroom, Patterson found Jayme and Denise huddled together in the bathtub and Jayme was wrapped in her mother’s arms in a “bear hug.” After Jayme’s wrists, ankles and mouth were taped together, Patterson fatally shot Denise in the head.

While being held captive in Patterson’s home, Jayme said she was repeatedly threatened if she didn’t remain quiet and was instructed to climb under his bed. Weights and boxes would then be placed around her to lock her in. However, 88 days after she went missing, Jayme was able to escape and a neighbor called the police, ultimately reuniting the 13-year-old with her aunt.

What Does the Guilty Plea Mean?

By entering a plea of “guilty,” Patterson waived his right to a trial and the prosecution no longer has to prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The case will move to the sentencing phase, where the judge will consider recommendations for sentencing based on the plea agreement.
