DARLINGTON — Jeremy Wand pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one count of felony murder in Lafayette County Circuit Court this afternoon.

Wand, 18, Argyle, also pleaded guilty to one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide and one count of arson.

The charges are in connection with the Sept. 7 fatal Argyle house fire that killed Wand's three nephews — Allen, 7, Jeffery, 5, and Joseph, 3 — as well as Wand's unborn niece.

Wand's sister-in-law, Sharon, and niece, Jessica, 2, were injured in the fire.

Wand's brother, Armin, pleaded guilty to the same charges Feb. 15. Armin Wand was sentenced to three life terms in prison without parole April 17.

Jeremy Wand was supposed to go on trial July 13. Instead, his sentencing will be July 19 at 9 a.m.
