A Prince George's County man pleaded guilty Tuesday to several charges in connection with a 2008 home invasion robbery and triple murder.

35-year-old Delante T. Cook is expected to be sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery, attempted robbery and using a firearm during a home invasion.

Over the course of three days in November 2008, Cook and several co-conspirators targeted the Fairfax County residence of Ryan and Terence Strope for a home invasion because they believed the Stropes had a large amount of marijuana and cash in the home.

On Nov. 19, 2008, Cook and other dressed as law enforcement officers and committed the home invasion. During the robbery, the Stropes and another man, Andres Yelicie, were stabbed to death.
