FAYETTEVILLE, AR-- A Northwest Arkansas man has pleaded guilty to killing his two infant sons.

On Monday, the Washington County prosecuting attorney recommended Travis Fox serve two life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Fox was charged with two counts of capital murder, accused of shaking both his six and seven-month-old sons to death over a two-year period. He was arrested for the 2011 death of the six-month-old boy only after police responded to the 2013 death of his seven-month-old son back in March.

According to court documents, the investigating coroner recognized Fox from the 2011 death, which was also determined to be suspicious, but hadn't yielded charges.

Police say Fox admitted to shaking both boys while he was under the influence of alcohol.
