In 1991, a Michigan man confessed to the murder of his pregnant wife. Sixteen years and a second-degree murder charge later, the man was released on parole.
On Wednesday, nine years since his release, Gregory Green pleaded guilty to the murder of his four children in 2016.
Back in 2007, with the help of a pastor, Green was released on his fifth request for parole. Two years later, he married the pastor’s daughter, Faith Harris. Together, the couple raised four children, two of their own and two teenagers from Faith’s previous marriage. However as years passed, the relationship took a turn for the worst.
In 2013, Faith filed for a personal order of protection, which was unfortunately rejected by a judge. Three years later, Faith filed for divorce, citing a “breakdown in the marriage relationship.”
A few months after Faith filed, Green snapped, reverting back to his old ways. In September of 2016, Green fatally shot his two teenage stepchildren, Chadney Allen, 19, and Kara Allen, 17, in front of their mother. Faith was stabbed, shot and tied up in the basement with the bodies of her teenage children, lying beside her.
Before calling the police, Green funneled toxic fumes into his running vehicle and put his two young children in there to die. He then carried the little girls, Koi,5, and Kaleigh, 4, back inside and placed them in the bed.
After the vicious crime, Green called the police and confessed to the murders. Officials found him on the front porch, waiting to be taken away.
Green is set to be sentenced on March 1. According to PEOPLE, he will serve two mandatory sentrances, followed by 45 to 100 years in prison.
