Michael Fay in Putnam County Court pleads guilty on Tuesday to the deaths of Blake and Blaine Romes. He told police they argued over his older brother’s plan to move back into the home. Fay could get a chance to seek parole after 60 years in prison.

Michael Fay faces up to life in prison when he goes before a judge Monday in Putnam County.

He pleaded guilty in October to two counts of aggravated murder in the shootings of 14-year-old Blaine Romes and his 17-year-old brother, Blake Romes.

Authorities say Fay killed the brothers at the Ottawa mobile home he and his mother were sharing with the brothers and their mother.

Prosecutors say they will recommend consecutive life sentences for Fay with the chance of parole after he serves 60 years in prison.
