MISSOULA — Logan Christopher, the Stevensville man charged with killing his mother and the mother of his children, appeared in court on Wednesday morning.

Christopher pleaded guilty to two counts deliberate homicide, one count of attempted deliberate homicide, criminal endangerment, and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

A hearing for Christopher was scheduled for Wednesday morning, but Ravalli County Attorney Bill Fullbright told MTN News that Christopher instead entered a guilty plea.

He faces a sentence of up to life in prison plus 20 years when he is sentenced on July 15. He remains jailed in the Ravalli County Detention Center on $2 million bail.

Christopher was charged with shooting and killing his 47-year-old mother Tiffanie Greenslade, and 25-year-old Marisa Wahl -- the mother of his children –- at their Stevensville-area home on March 10. He was also charged with shooting and injuring his father.

Prosecutors say that on the evening of March 10th, Wahl contacted Christopher’s parents and asked them to come to her residence near their home as “something was wrong.”

When Christopher’s parents arrived at Wahl’s trailer, his father grabbed a three-year-old child and took the child to his residence for safety. Christopher’s father then called 911 for help. He returned to the trailer and found Greenslade laying in the entry room with a gunshot wound, according to court documents.

An altercation with the suspect followed and Christopher’s father was shot in the arm. Prosecutors say he ran from the house while the suspect continued to shoot at him.

Court documents say that Christopher then left the scene in a Camaro. He was spotted by the Montana Highway Patrol in Lolo, which led to a chase into Missoula at speeds that reached 130 miles per hour. Christopher then crashed the vehicle near Southgate Mall and was taken into custody.

Authorities later found Wahl dead inside the trailer with an 11-month-old baby. A significant quantity of drug content was also found in the trailer’s bedroom, according to court documents. Evidence consistent with the suspect’s flight from the home was also collected from the yard, according to court documents. In addition to the crime scene, a handgun, ammunition, and approximately $4,000 in cash were found loose in the car.
