IRVING, Texas (AP) — A Texas man has pleaded guilty to helping his father evade arrest for over 12 years in the fatal shootings of the man’s two teen sisters.

Federal prosecutors say Islam Yaser-Abdel Said pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy to conceal a person from arrest, concealing a person from arrest and conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding.

The 32-year-old from Irving faces up to 30 years in prison when he’s sentenced in April.

Islam Said’s father, Yaser Said, was arrested in August.

Yaser Said had been wanted on a capital murder warrant following the New Year’s Day 2008 fatal shootings of his daughters.
