Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A man accused in the rape and murder of a mother and daughter was in court on Tuesday on separate charges.
Bryan Clay pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors in a domestic violence case.
Prosecutors said he beat his girlfriend twice while she was pregnant with his baby.
In exchange for his guilty plea, several felony charges were dropped that could have been used as an argument for the death penalty in his upcoming double murder trial.
That trial is set to begin next April.
