The former police officer who authorities believe was the Golden State Killer, responsible for 12 murders statewide and six on the South Coast made his first appearance in court Friday since his arrest.
72 year old James Joseph DeAngelo appeared frail, and disoriented as he was wheeled into a Sacramento courtroom in a wheelchair.
A judge asked if he was DeAngelo, and he whispered yes. So far, he’s been charged with eight murders. He didn’t enter a plea, and the court hearing was continued until May 14th.
