Suspect in Quebec City mosque slayings pleads guilty
The man accused in the slayings of six men at a Quebec City mosque has changed his mind and pleaded guilty. A Superior Court justice refused to accept the pleas Monday pending a psychiatric assessment. Alexandre Bissonnette originally pleaded not guilty to the 12 charges Monday morning but that afternoon announced he wanted to plead guilty. Superior Court Justice Francois Huot refused to accept the pleas Monday pending a psychiatric assessment of the accused to ensure he fully understood the consequences of his decision. Huot placed a publication ban on Monday afternoon's proceedings but agreed Wednesday to accept the 12 guilty pleas. Bissonnette faced six charges of first-degree murder and six of attempted murder. More than 50 people were at the Islamic Cultural Centre in January 2017 when the shooting began during evening prayers. Six men aged between 39 and 60 were killed. Bissonnette said he didn't want the families to have to "relive the tragedy." Bissonnette told Huot on Monday he had been thinking for some time of pleading guilty but that he was missing certain pieces of evidence, which were relayed Sunday. "In my heart, it's the decision I've made," Bissonnette said. When Huot asked him if he was fully aware of what he was doing, Bissonnette replied, "Yes." Huot asked Bissonnette whether he knew he would be getting a life sentence and he answered, "I understand." Jury selection was scheduled to start April 3 and the trial to last two months. Many members of Quebec City's Muslim community were present in court Monday and Wednesday.

The indictment moves the case to Superior Court, where Krause, of Rockport, Maine, will be arraigned on April 11, officials said.
Prosecutors allege that Krause bludgeoned his victims with a baseball bat on the evening of Sept. 8 and then confessed the killings to a neighbor.
Authorities have identified the victims as his mother, Elizabeth Krause, 60; her parents, F. Danby Lackey III, 89, and his wife, Elizabeth Lackey, 85; and their caretaker, Bertha Mae Parker, 68, a health aide who had recently begun caring for the elderly couple.
Krause’s father, Alexander, told the Globe during an emotional interview days after the killings that the case underscored the need “to pay more attention to mental health,” though he declined to elaborate.
“He was a stellar student,” Alexander Krause said in September. “I have had to learn to cope with a lot of difficult stuff, but this is the extreme bitter end.”
