MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A Bloomington man has pleaded guilty to charges in a crash that killed a mother and her two sons in Hennepin County.

Prosecutors say 29-year-old Rufus Victor was fleeing from a state trooper Dec. 5 and smashed into a car driven by 29-year-old Amanda Thomas. The woman, her 12-year-old son Andre and 3-month-old Akeron were killed.

Victor agreed to a plea deal just as a jury was about to be selected in Hennepin County District Court. He pleaded guilty Monday to fleeing police in a motor vehicle causing death.

If Victor is given consecutive sentences for each of the three deaths, the sentencing guidelines call for a prison term of 45 years. He will be sentenced Sept. 15.
