Canada guard pleads guilty in murder of colleagues

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — A man charged with an armored car heist at a Canadian university that left three armed guards dead last year is pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

Travis Baumgartner, 22, entered the plea Monday. He is accused of shooting four colleagues in a G4S Cash Solutions crew that was re-loading bank machines at a University of Alberta mall in June 2012.

Three colleagues were killed, and the fourth survived a bullet to the head.

Baumgartner was arrested near a U.S. border crossing. Police said they found $334,000 in a backpack he had with him.

He had been on the job for three months.
