David (Joey) Joseph Pedersen, 31 is shown in this undated police mug shot released to ReutersA white supremacist convicted of killing two people and accused of killing two more during a violent road trip across the Pacific Northwest pleaded guilty on Wednesday in federal court in Oregon to two counts of carjacking resulting in death, his attorney said. David Joseph Pedersen, 33, is already serving a life sentence in Washington state after pleading guilty in 2012 to first-degree murder for the shooting death of his father and the stabbing death of his stepmother in the Puget Sound city of Everett. Pedersen and his girlfriend, Holly Ann Grigsby, were arrested in 2011 in northern California after a bloody, two-week crime spree that began in Everett with the slaying of the elder Pedersens. The three-state road trip, during which the duo are also accused of killing a middle-aged black man and a 19-year-old stranger singled out because they thought he was Jewish, ended with Grigsby allegedly telling police she and Pedersen were on their way to "kill more Jews" in Sacramento, California.
