An Eastpointe man who pleaded guilty to killing his wife and two children and admitted he is mentally ill was sentenced to life without parole today. 

TimothyFradeneck's guilty plea carried a life sentence and qualifies him for mental health care in prison.

His wife, Christie, and two children, ages 8 and 2, were found strangled with a USB cord last April at their Eastpointe home.
