Jason Dalton surprised judges and lawyers who expected him to fight the charges when he nearly immediately admitted to both murder and attempted murder.
Uber driver charged with killing 6 people and seriously wounding 2 more in a shooting spree around Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 2016, pleads guilty Monday to all counts.
He answered "yes" to a series of questions, admitting that he shot eight people at three locations in the Kalamazoo area in 2016.
After his arrest, police quoted him as saying a "devil figure" on Uber was controlling him on the day of the shootings.
Dalton wanted to plead guilty to murder.
Four women were killed in the parking lot of a Cracker Barrel restaurant: Barbara Hawthorne, Dorothy "Judy" Brown, Mary Lou Nye and her sister-in-law, Mary Jo Nye. With no deal on the table, he will be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.
Throughout the rest of the hearing, Dalton remained in a holding cell with two police escorts, following the hearing by video conference.
Last week, Dalton's lawyer withdrew a 2016 motion that would have permitted Dalton to use insanity as a defense.

Jason Brian Dalton, 48, accused of killing six people in a shooting spree in the northern U.S. state of MI, police say.
Prosecutor Jeff Getting said the motive behind the shootings is a question that "haunts us". He also described something "like an artificial presence", the report said.
Dalton is a father of two, and a former insurance adjuster and Uber driver.
"We're very happy that we're able to reach this resolution", Getting said as reported by ABC News.
Dalton is reportedly due to be sentenced on 5 February.
The 48-year-old told the judge Monday he wanted to plead guilty, avoiding a weekslong trial.
