  • Golden State Killer suspect charged in four more slayings

The man who California authorities recently linked to the infamous unsolved Golden State Killer case was charged with an additional 4 counts of murder Thursday for a total of 12.

Each of the four counts Joseph DeAngelo faces carry the possibility of life without parole or the death sentence.

In addition to the killings, the Golden State Killer is suspected in about 45 rapes and multiple residential burglaries between 1976 and 1986.

A meeting was held Friday morning in Santa Barbara regarding the trial of the suspected Golden State Killer with ties to crimes that have happened in Santa Barbara County.

DeAngelo, 72, had previously been charged with eight counts of murder in cold case homicides across California in the 1970s and '80s. The armed and masked prowler sneaked in through windows at night and surprised sleeping victims who ranged in age from 13 to 41.

Investigators found DeAngelo after scouring dozens of family trees on genealogy websites for possible DNA and profile matches.


He is now behind bars at the Sacramento County jail. He was a police officer in the California towns of Exeter and Auburn during the 70s.

A former police officer, DeAngelo was arrested last month in Sacramento, and remains in custody there. He has not yet entered a plea to any of the charges against him. "In fact, majority spend their lives feverishly seeking answers and desperately hoping for justice".

Officials believe the Golden State Killer fatally shot Dr. Robert Offerman and Alexandria Manning in December 1979 near Goleta.

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