ANOKA, Minn. — A man accused of killing two women and hiding their bodies in cars found at Twin Cities area impound lots has pleaded guilty to one of the crimes.

Twenty-five-year-old Alberto Palmer entered the plea Wednesday in Anoka County the death of Brittany Clardy. The body of the 18-year-old St. Paul woman was found in a car in an impound lot in Columbia Heights in February of last year.

Palmer's agreement with prosecutors calls for a 40-year prison sentence that's contingent on a guilty plea in Hennepin County involving the death of the second woman — 24-year-old Klaressa Cook. Her body was found in May 2013 in a car that had been towed to an impound lot in Minneapolis

Authorities say Palmer also has several outstanding felony warrants for assault and kidnapping in Georgia.
