Suspect in 2008 US triple slaying pleads guilty

A New York man has admitted fatally stabbing three members of a family in their New Jersey home in May 2008.
Kang-Hyuk Choi, of Valley Stream, New York, pleaded guilty Friday to three counts of murder and criminal weapons possession.
Choi admitted to killing 27-year-old friend Han-Il Kim in Kim's home in Tenafly, New Jersey, a New York City suburb, then waiting hours in Kim's room before killing his mother and uncle.
The Record newspaper reports that Choi told a judge he understood his actions were wrong. He spoke through a Korean interpreter.
Choi admitted stabbing Kim in a dispute over $30,000, then stabbing Kim's mother, Yoo Bok Kim, and Kim's 72-year-old uncle, Doo Soo Seo.
Choi could face 64 years in prison at his sentencing, which was set for Nov. 2.
