The man accused of killing four people in Brooklyn and wounding four others last year pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted murder for attacking a man on a subway in Times Square at the end of his 28-hour rampage.

Maksim Gelman already pleaded guilty in November to murder and other charges for killing four people in Brooklyn, including his stepfather, a woman he was allegedly obsessed with and her mother.

Gelman then went on a rampage of stabbings and carjackings that finally ended on the morning of February 12, 2011, when he slashed and stabbed his final victim aboard a 3 subway train and was caught by authorities minutes later.

The final attack was a separate case because it happened in Manhattan.

Gelman is expected to get 25 years in prison to be served after his sentence for the Brooklyn killings.

He is expected to get life in prison when he is sentenced for those killings on Wednesday.
