SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) - A Reno man headed for trial in the killings of four women whose bodies were found around Northern
California is getting some legal help.
Joseph Naso had been representing himself in the quadruple murder case. But he showed up in Marin County Superior Court on
Wednesday with his new advisory counsel, Michael Marowitz.
The Marin Independent Journal reports that the judge agreed to postpone setting a trial date until next week because of Marowitz's arrival.
The advisory counsel may not speak on Naso's behalf during the trial.
The 78-year-old Naso is accused of killing Roxene Roggasch in
1977, Carmen Colon in 1978, Pamela Parsons in 1993 and Tracy Tafoya in 1994. All four were prostitutes found strangled in rural areas.
If convicted, he could face the death penalty.
