ANOKA, Minn. (AP) -- A man accused of killing two women, one of whom used to live in Gainesville, and hiding their bodies in cars found at Minneapolis area impound lots has pleaded guilty to one of the crimes.<br />
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, Minn., in February of last year.<br />
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, formerly of Gainesville. Her body was found in May 2013 in a car that had been towed to an impound lot in Minneapolis. (See earlier story. Link below.)<br />
Authorities say Palmer also has several outstanding felony warrants for assault and kidnapping in Georgia.<br />
