Golden State Killer Joseph DeAngelo sentenced to life in prison

Joseph DeAngelo – known as the Golden State Killer – has been sentenced to life in prison without parole – after his crimes went unsolved for decades.

DeAngelo, who carried out a spate of killings, rapes and robberies in California during the 1970s and 80s, was finally arrested two years ago after investigators managed to link his crimes by pioneering a new method of DNA tracing.
