The man who was once Australia's most wanted fugitive, Malcolm Naden, has pleaded guilty to the murder of two women and to a string of other charges.

A year to the day since his capture in northern New South Wales, Naden today stood before the Supreme Court and pleaded guilty to a number of offences.

He is accused of killing his cousin Lateesha Nolan, whose body has never been found, and strangling her friend Kristy Scholes in 2005.

He also faces charges over an indecent assault on a 12-year-old girl in 2004.
