Utah Man Pleads Guilty In Killings Of Ex-Girlfriend, Her Son

Cache County Sheriff's Office

A 30-year-old Utah man faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty to the 2015 killings of his former girlfriend and her young son.

The Utah County Attorney's Office said Christopher Poulson pleaded guilty Tuesday in state District Court in American Fork to murder and other charges in the killings of 23-year-old Emily Almiron and her 3-year-old son, Gabriel.

Their bodies haven't been recovered but the County Attorney's Office said in a statement that Poulson is cooperating with the search for their bodies.

Relatives of the victims reported them missing on Sept. 12, 2015.

Poulson was extradited to Utah from Hawaii in 2017 after he was charged with the killings.

He is expected to be sentenced on Sept. 26.
