Gardner pleads guilty to murders of Chelsea, Amber

By Dana Littlefield, UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

Originally published April 16, 2010 at 2:29 p.m., updated April 16, 2010 at 3:21 p.m

John Albert Gardner III pleaded guilty Friday to murder charges in the slayings of Chelsea King and Amber Dubois, ending weeks of speculation as to whether he would be charged in the deaths of both teenage girls.

As a result, Gardner, a 31-year-old convicted sex offender, will avoid facing the death penalty, and instead be sentenced to two consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Gardner also pleaded guilty to the special circumstances of raping or attempting to rape both teenagers.

He also pleaded guilty to a charge of assaulting a jogger, Candice Moncayo, in Rancho Bernardo Community Park on Dec. 27, 2009.

As part of the plea agreement, Gardner waived his right to appeal the convictions. San Diego Superior Court Judge David Danielsen accepted the plea Friday afternoon.

Dressed in a black jumpsuit and orange sandals, Gardner mostly kept his gaze lowered and gave one-word answers to a series of questions by Danielsen, acknowledging his guilty pleas.

Danielsen’s questioning revealed new information about the circumstances of Amber’s death. Gardner acknowledged to Danielsen that he raped and stabbed the 14-year-old Escondido girl within 90 minutes of first contacting her. Amber disappeared on Feb. 13, 2009 while walking to Escondido High School.

Chelsea disappeared on Feb. 25 after going for a run in Rancho Bernardo Community Park. The 17-year-old Poway girl’s body was found five days later, on March 2, in a shallow grave in a tributary of nearby Lake Hodges. Thousands of volunteers and law enforcement officials had searched for the girl.

Gardner was arrested Feb. 28 and arraigned the next day on charges he raped and murdered Chelsea. He was linked to the crime through DNA evidence found on a piece of Chelsea’s clothing.

On March 6, authorities announced they had found Amber’s skeletal remains 13 months after she went missing.

Escondido police said Gardner was a focus in the investigation into Amber’s death, but would not discuss any further details.

Citing a gag order, lawyers in the case refused to answer any questions about Gardner, including whether he had led authorities to Amber’s body.

On Thursday, Deputy District Attorney Kristen Spieler said District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis had consulted parents of both teenagers before making the plea agreement with Gardner.

“Both families understand the reasons behind this decision and support this decision,” Spieler told Danielsen.

Attending the hearing were Chelsea’s parents, Brent and Kelly King, and Amber’s parents, Moe Dubois and Carrie McGonigle.

The families were joined by about 10 supporters, some wearing buttons with Amber’s face on them. Some wore T-shirts emblazoned with, “Hope never sleeps, bring Amber home” and “Amber’s eyes will always shine.” Three people wore shirts promoting Chelsea’s Light Foundation with the phrase, “They can because they think they can.”

After the hearing, supporters gathered outside the courtroom and hugged each other, but declined to comment.

Gardner’s attorneys, deputy public defenders Mel Epley and Michael Popkins, declined to make a statement after the hearing.

Dumanis and Sheriff Bill Gore also attended the hearing, sitting in the front row of onlookers.

If I read that last set of tweets correctly, Gardner's only deal was that he would take  LE to where he buried Amber and they could not use that against him, however any evidence they found at the scene could be used against him.  He must have left a lot of evidence.

I just heard this on my local news. Oh my, I knew it when I heard chelsea had come up missing it was connected. I don't know how but something just told me. I am so sorry Amber, such an innocent child had to be taken in such away. May her death and the awful circumstances be a lesson to those in Law Enforcement that not all teens that come up missing are angry run aways. Sometimes they are simply great kids who need their help.

My prayers go out to the family. May the light of Ambers love shine in their hearts forever and help them some how get through this.

Gardener Leads Authorities To Teen's Body

SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis says convicted sex offender John Gardner led authorities to the body of Amber Dubois.

Dumanis says Gardner agreed to lead authorities to the body on the condition that they could not use that information against him in court.

Dumanis says it was a difficult decision, but prosecutors had no other evidence or DNA to link him to the death of Dubois

Sex offender admits two slayings, avoids trial

SAN DIEGO – John Gardner, the convicted sex offender from Lake Elsinore, avoided a death sentence by pleading guilty Friday to the slayings of two San Diego County girls.

Gardner waived his right to appeal the convictions and will be sentenced to two consecutive, no-parole prison terms.

His unexpected plea ended speculation over whether he would be charged in the deaths of both Chelsea King and Amber Dubois.

Gardner also admitted assaulting another girl in the Rancho Bernardo Community Park in December.

Amber disappeared in February of last year while walking to Escondido High School.

Chelsea disappeared February 25th after going for a run in the Rancho Bernardo park. The 17-year-old Poway girl’s body was found five days later.

I am feeling the same way, and I feel certain their are others.  At least he is locked up for the rest of his life. I am glad they located Amber, and gave the family at least that sence of closure.  If there is ever any closure when you lose a child.
