  • A former police officer accused of being the “Golden State Killer” pleaded guilty to a multitude of crimes. Joseph James DeAngelo Jr., 74, admitted guilt in 13 counts of first-degree murder. His victims and their family members were present during the proceedings. DeAngelo was seated in a wheelchair on a makeshift stage in a university ballroom instead of a courthouse to allow for social distancing. He terrorized California with a string of slayings, rapes and break-ins in a crime wave dating back to the mid-1970s. DeAngelo entered the plea as part of a broader agreement with prosecutors from 11 California counties to admit to all allegations against him, charged and uncharged. Under the terms of the plea deal, DeAngelo is spared a potential death sentence but will face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
