COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - Joseph Duncan sat mostly still and silent during his plea deal hearing in Coeur d'Alene.  The only words he spoke were one-word answers in response to the judge's questions.

When judge Fred Gibler asked Duncan how he pleaded on each of three counts of kidnapping and three counts of murder, he simply said "guilty" to each question.

After entering his pleas on all six charges, Judge Gibler asked Duncan if there was anything he wanted to say.

"I thought about what I would say if I was asked," he replied.  "I have nothing to say."
