Guam - It appears defendant Keith Garrido won't be facing a jury after all.

Garrido is accused of murdering Nancy Mafnas after he burglarized her home. While en route to a court hearing, he reportedly escaped from a DepCor vehicle and assaulted another woman in her home.  Garrido is also accused in a 2013 burglary case.

Although jury trial and selection was scheduled to start today, both counsels tell KUAM that Garrido is anticipated to enter a guilty plea, for at least the murder case.

Garrido's change of plea is slated for February 6.
