District Attorney Joyce Dudley on Thursday afternoon announced that her office had filed first-degree murder charges against Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, who also is facing murder charges in Sacramento, Ventura and Orange counties.

He was being held in the Sacramento County Main Jail medical unit Thursday, Howard said.

DeAngelo was also been charged with killing Robert Offerman, an orthopedic surgeon and Alexandria Manning, a psychologist, in their condo in December 1979.

DeAngelo, who has adult children, was a police officer in Exeter in central California from 1973 to 1976, officials said.

"The [suspect] gained entry into the homes of his victims by prying open a window or door while they slept", the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a 2016 press release. The crimes continued across the state until 1986. They got lucky: a match with family members led them to identify and arrest Joseph James DeAngelo.

White House Goes Silent on Remark about McCain
Trump's nominee for C.I.A. director because of her past ties to an interrogation program that used torture on terrorist suspects. But instead, that was overcome by saturation cable TV coverage about Sadler's comment.

Interest in the cold case was renewed following the release of the late author Michelle McNamara's crime novel, "I'll Be Gone in the Dark".

Ringwald recalled hearing about DeAngelo's arrest and being shaken by the series of crimes that haunted her as a child. She died in her sleep in 2016 at age 46, prior to her book's publication. DeAngelo faces similar charges in that case.

DeAngelo is scheduled to appear in a Sacramento County courtroom next week.

No decision is expected Friday, but Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert has said the case could be moved to Southern California, where the bulk of the murders occurred, as long as all counties' prosecutors can participate jointly. "In fact, a lot of them spend their lives feverishly seeking answers and desperately hoping for justice".
