POWELL, Wyo. —Court documents indicate two men charged with killing three members of a Wyoming family near the Montana border have reached plea deals.

Court documents show Tanner B. Vanpelt and Stephen F. Hammer intend to change their pleas from not guilty and be sentenced Sept. 3.

Hammer was 19 and Vanpelt was 18 when they were arrested in March on suspicion of fatally shooting 40-year-old Ildiko Freitas and her parents, Janos and Hildegard Volgyesi, in the northwestern Wyoming town of Clark.

Details of the plea agreements haven't been revealed.
