Man Gets Life In Prison For Murders Of Two South Florida School Janitors

 A man accused of killing two school custodians in 2013 has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty.

Javier Burgos, 57, pleaded guilty last week to two counts of first-degree murder with a firearm in the deaths of 56-year-old Ted Orama of Greenacres and 48-year-old Christopher Marshall of West Palm Beach.

Their bodies were found on the morning of June 19, 2013, by another custodian at Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in downtown West Palm Beach.

On Monday, a Palm Beach County judge accepted the terms of the plea deal and sentenced Burgos to life in prison.

Burgos was named a suspect in the murders in 2014, but fled to Colombia. 

Buding Burgos' four years at the school, he was accused of trying to sell a gun to a co-worker on school grounds, grabbing his crotch in front of a female colleague and challenging another co-worker to fight.

He was extradited back to the U.S. in May and confessed to the murders.
