PASQUOTANK COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) – A man who killed his grandparents and dumped their bodies in a ditch in 2010 will spend the rest of his life behind bars without the possibility of parole.

Dee Ivey with Pasquotank County Courts told Christopher Aaron Wright took a plea deal Monday on charges of first degree murder and second degree murder.

Wright killed Robert and Carolyn Alexander and dumped their bodies along Wades Point Road in the Elizabeth City area. Deputies found the couple after a family member reported them missing.

He was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the first degree murder of Carolyn Alexander and 17 years in prison for the second degree murder of Robert Alexander.
