SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) - The 79-year-old man accused in the decades-old serial killings of four women is set to continue his lengthy self-defense in a Northern California courtroom Monday.
Joseph Naso is acting as his own attorney. When he finally finishes his closing argument that began Friday, prosecutors will give a rebuttal and then a judge with give jurors their instructions so they can begin deliberating.
Naso is imploring the Marin County jury to ignore the mountain of evidence prosecutors presented during the two-month trial to prove he was a predator who killed young prostitutes - two in the 1970s and two in the 1990s.
Naso has pleaded not guilty. He could get the death penalty if he's convicted.
