VAN ZANDT COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas double murder suspect received life in prison without parole as part of a plea deal Thursday.

Donny Lee Greenhow pleaded guilty to the murders of Peter and LaTricia Shick, a Van Zandt County couple. Greenhow was taken into custody in Tennessee in August 2012.

Earlier that same month, a warrant was issued for Greenhow's arrest after the Shick's were found dead inside their home. Authorities discovered he was in Tennessee after Greenhow accidentally left his I.D. on the counter at a gas station. Investigators believe he had traveled to Tennessee to kill his father.

Greenhow was extradited back to Van Zandt County and booked into jail on capital murder charges.
