PORTLAND -- A sex offender pleaded guilty Friday to murdering two women in Portland.

Mark Beebout, faced nearly two dozen counts that include multiple charges of murder and sexual assault.

Sentencing was set for March 14.

Police linked him to the murder of an unidentified woman found in Washington Park last June.

Investigators used DNA to link Beebout to the victim.

The convicted sex offender had already been indicted for the murder and sexual assault of 32-year-old Nikayla Powell. Her body was found in her Portland apartment in July.

Powell was a volunteer who helped the homeless and had allowed Beebout to move into her apartment.
