Screen Shot

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley on Thursday announced the filing of charges against the suspected Golden State Killer. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department, other sheriff departments and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are looking at the evidence and speaking with witnesses to determine if any other crimes can be connected to DeAngelo. "Each of the four counts carry the potential for life without the possibility of parole or the death sentence".

Authorities used DNA and a genealogical website to identify DeAngelo.

As a prosecutor, Dudley said she is always in search of truth and justice, even in the grimmest cases.

Authorities believe the Golden State Killer was responsible for killing a dozen people and for at least 50 rapes in California during the mid-1970s and 1980s.

Thursday's charges by Santa Barbara District Attorney's office names four victims.

In Santa Barbara County, the mysterious killer was known as the Original Night Stalker.


"Joseph DeAngelo is a suspect who must be presumed innocent unless and until he is found guilty", said Dudley.

DeAngelo, 72, was charged with killing two people - Robert Offer man and Alexandria Manning - on December 30, 1979, and with the 1981 killings of Cheri Domingo and Gregory Sanchez in Goleta. Dudley said she is hosting a meeting of regional district attorneys Friday to discuss how to move forward with prosecution in the wide-ranging cases.

Dudley noted that DeAngelo is a suspect and maintains a presumption of innocence.

He already has been charged with eight other murder counts in Sacramento, Ventura and Orange counties.

DeAngelo now faces four counts of first-degree murder with special circumstances in Santa Barbara, though it was unclear when he might appear in court there.
