The man accused of killing four people and injuring four others during a deadly 28-hour stabbing rampage in February pleaded guilty in Brooklyn today to all charges.

Maksim Gelman, 24, was accused of fatally stabbing his own stepfather, Aleksander Kuznetsov, in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn on February 11, following after a fight about borrowing a car.

Investigators say Gelman then went to the home of Yelena Bulchenko and her mother Anna, stabbed them both to death and wounded a neighbor.

They say Gelman also hit and killed a pedestrian, 62-year-old Stephen Tanenbaum, and committed two carjackings in Brooklyn, and stabbed the drivers.

The wounded drivers survived.

By the morning of February 12, Gelman was riding on a crowded 3 train when he stabbed a subway rider in the head and chest at the Times Square Street station. Authorities arrested Gelman minutes later.

Previously, Gelman entered a not guilty plea, but a doctor ruled that he could not use an insanity plea, according to the Associated Press.

Gelman could serve life in prison when he is sentenced at a later date.
