NEWPORT, Ore. -- A man pleaded guilty Friday to killing his wife and 2-year-old daughter and dumping their bodies into coastal waters in December 2001 -- but pleaded innocent in the deaths of his two other children, offering no explanation.

When asked whether he killed MaryJane Longo, 34, and their daughter, Madison, Christian Longo, 29, replied: "That's correct."

He did not reveal how or why he killed them, nor did he offer any insight into who he believes might have killed his other children, Zachery, 4, and Sadie Ann, 3. A trial on those charges is scheduled to begin March 10.
