The Wisconsin man charged with kidnapping teenager Jayme Closs and killing her parents says he will enter a guilty plea to all charges later this month.

Jake Patterson is scheduled for arraignment in Barron County Circuit Court March 27th. He sent a letter to a reporter at a Minnesota television station saying he doesn't want the girl or her family to worry about a trial. Patterson didn't mention the murders of James and Denise Closs in the letter. He currently faces four felony charges.
