A Seaside man accused of killing his ex-wife and another man has pleaded guilty in court.

Marcus Foster pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated murder Wednesday, the only charges he was facing.

He was arrested in May 2012. Police said he killed Laura Foster, 53, and Guy Phillips, 53, with a baseball bat.

The victims were found inside a home on the 1300 block of 10th Avenue in Seaside. Police said they were long-time friends.

Investigators said Phillips had moved to Seaside from the Portland area just a few days before the murders.

Investigators said Marcus Foster and Laura Foster were divorced in 2003, but maintained an on-and-off relationship after that.

Marcus Foster was set to face trial in June before changing his plea Wednesday. He will be sentenced on April 22.
