Solicitation Court offers prostitutes an opportunity to get out of the business.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A former Marine charged with killing four
people, including a prostitute featured on HBO's "Cathouse"
series, has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.

Oklahoma County court records indicate 30-year-old David
"Hooligan" Tyner entered the pleas Friday. District Judge Glenn
Jones sentenced Tyner to life in prison without the possibility of
parole.

Prosecutors had planned to seek the death penalty at Tyner's
trial later this month.

Tyner was charged in the November 2009 shooting deaths of Brooke
Phillips, Milagrous Barrera, Jennifer Ermey and Mark Barrientos.
Phillips worked at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch near Carson City, Nev.

The victims were found in a burning home that witnesses have
said was the center of a drug distribution and prostitution ring.

Because two of the victims were pregnant, Tyner faced six counts
of first-degree murder.
