Golden State Killer Suspect Charged in 4 Goleta Cold-Case Murders

Joseph DeAngelo, 72, is accused of at least a dozen murders and more than 50 rapes across California in the 1970s and '80s.

Thursday's charges by Santa Barbara District Attorney's office names four victims. Each count carries the possibility of life in prison without parole or the death sentence.

DeAngelo, who has two adult children, was arrested on April 24 at his home in a Sacramento suburb.

A man who prosecutors say was one of California's most elusive serial killers was charged Thursday with four additional counts of murder, leaving him now facing a dozen murder charges across the state.

The Orange County part of the Golden State Killer investigation began with the August 1980 slaying of a newlywed couple in Dana Point.

Former investigator Paul Holes said Sanchez regained consciousness after being shot in the face and attempted to fight back before the killer ultimately bludgeoned both Domingo and Sanchez to death. Now cops think it was the Golden State Killer.

Decades after the killings terrified communities throughout California, authorities tracked down the suspect by comparing genetic profiles from genealogy websites to crime scene DNA, according to investigators.

DeAngelo allegedly went on a decades-long crime spree involving murder, assault, and almost 50 burglary and rape charges from crimes committed between 1976 and 1986.

DeAngelo's attorney, Diane Howard, did not immediately respond for comment.

She added that she will be meeting with other district attorneys on Friday to discuss the issue. "In fact, a lot of them spend their lives feverishly seeking answers and desperately hoping for justice".

DeAngelo is also suspected of being the Visalia Ransacker.
