SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors are expected to urge a Northern California jury to find a former photographer guilty of murdering four women decades ago and dumping their bodies in rural areas.

Marin County prosecutors are scheduled to deliver closing arguments Wednesday in a two-month trial than can result in the death penalty if 79-year-old Joseph Naso is found guilty.

The retired commercial photographer who lived in Reno, Nev., before his arrest has pleaded not guilty to murdering the four prostitutes, all of whom had matching first and last initials.

Naso is charged with murdering Roxene Roggasch in 1977, Carmen Colon in 1978, Pamela Parsons in 1993 and Tracy Tafoya in 1994.
Naso is representing himself and is expected to deliver his own arguments Friday. Naso didn't testify during the trial.
