Man pleads guilty in slayings of housemate, another man


Kentwood – A western Michigan man has pleaded guilty in the fatal stabbings of his housemate and another man in separate incidents.

Sentencing is scheduled Sept. 3 for George Yzaguirre, WOOD-TV reported.

Court records show that Yzaguirre, 37, entered the pleas Aug. 4 to felony murder and first-degree murder in the deaths of Ed Fuller, 63, and David Isner, 34.

Police said workers at a Home Depot store called 911 in December to report that Yzaguirre walked in and said he wanted to turn himself in for two killings.

Isner was stabbed in late November and his body was dumped outdoors. He had shared a Kentwood duplex with Yzaguirre.

Kentwood police have said Yzaguirre killed his housemate because he “was offended by something that Isner said to him.”

Fuller was found dead at his mobile home in Byron Township, south of Grand Rapids. He had been robbed.
