Repeat convicted drunken driver, John Patrick Barton has pleaded guilty in an Easter traffic wreck in Lewisville that left 33-year-old Kandace Hull and 13-year-old Autumn Caudle of Argyle dead.

The 30-year-old Lewisville man pleaded guilty Monday in Denton to two counts of murder and three counts of intoxicated assault with a vehicle.

He faces up to life in prison in the sentencing phase, scheduled to begin today.

Records show Barton, whose plea acknowledged driving drunk during the double fatals last Easter, has three DWI convictions since 1997, including the last one in 2006.
