Golden State Killer suspect charged with four more counts of murder

Molly Ringwald recalled living in fear as the Golden State Killer committed crimes nearby to her home. Last month James De Angelo was arrested in connection to the Golden State Killer’s crimes

The case of the Golden State Killer, linked to at least 50 rapes and 12 murders between 1976 and 1986, had gone cold - although investigators believed they had a reliable sequence of the perpetrator's DNA.

In April, authorities arrested Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, at his home near Sacramento.

The Golden State Killer, also known as the Original Night Stalker and the East Area Rapist, is believed responsible for at least 12 homicides, 45 rapes and 120 burglaries, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He initially was charged with eight counts of murder and could face dozens more charges, authorities said.

Each of the four new first-degree murder charges carries a possible sentence of death or life in prison without parole.

He then carried out multiple killings in Ventura and Orange counties before returning to the Santa Barbara area where he killed Domingo and Sanchez.

Prosecutors say DeAngelo, a former police officer, was one of California's most elusive serial killers. They got lucky: a match with family members led them to identify and arrest Joseph James DeAngelo.

"This has been an ongoing discussion all district attorneys have been having, one that will not be decided tomorrow", Dudley said.

Dudley announced that DeAngelo is facing four charges of first-degree murder with special circumstances for the 1979 murders of Robert Offerman and Debra Manning and the 1981 murders of Cheri Domingo and Greg Sanchez.

No charges have been filed in Santa Barbara County, however.

DeAngelo has now been charged with all the murders that investigators believe were committed by the Golden State Killer.

His attorney, Diane Howard, did not immediately respond Thursday to an email seeking comment.
