(Reuters) - A white supremacist suspected with his girlfriend of killing four people in a violent road trip across the Pacific Northwest has pleaded guilty to two slayings in a deal with prosecutors that spares him from the death penalty in Washington state.

David Joseph Pedersen, 31, entered a guilty plea on Monday to two counts of aggravated first-degree murder for the shooting death of his father, David "Red" Pedersen, 56, and the stabbing death of his stepmother, Leslie Mae "DeeDee" Pedersen, 69.

Both were slain last September in the Puget Sound city of Everett, Washington, some 30 miles northeast of Seattle.

Under terms of his plea deal, Pedersen will be sentenced on Friday to life in prison, Snohomish County prosecutor Mark Roe told Reuters.
