A Grover Beach man pleaded no contest to murdering an elderly retired history teacher.
42-year-old David Krause sentenced to 30 years to life in prison. He waived his right to a trial by jury.
Krause was arrested in 2021 and accused of killing 90-year-old Larry Ross, a retired history teacher and political activist.
Krause had recently been released from prison after being convicted of burglaries in 2016 and 2018.
