The man known as the Golden State Killer, a suburban rapist who terrorized California after a series of rapes in the 70's and 80's, is in court today after pleading guilty for 13 murders and 13 kidnapping-related charges.

Joseph James DeAngelo was finally arrested in 2018, decades after the crimes were committed, when DNA matches from family members led investigators to him.

For more on the case, KCBS Radio news anchors Jeff Bell and Patti Reising spoke with Law Professor Robert Weisberg, Director of the Stanford Criminal Justice Center.
