An eastern Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to killing three people in a domestic dispute at a college campus.
He was charged with three counts of murder in the fatal shootings last year of his former girlfriend and two of her family members in the parking lot of Hazard Community and Technical College.
Police have said that Stidham had a child with 20-year-old Caitlin Cornett and had met in the parking lot to exchange custody of the 2-year-old boy. Cornett; her uncle, 53-year-old Jackie Cornett and her 12-year-old cousin, Taylor Jade Cornett, died in the shooting.
Formal sentencing for Stidham was set for June 5.
