SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) - Joseph Naso, facing the death penalty for the murders of four women, mocked the prosecutor during interviews with prospective jurors.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the 79-year-old Naso, acting as his own lawyer, addressed a panel of 21 possible jurors on Monday.

Naso flailed his hands, saying he was mimicking gestures made by Marin County prosecutor Rosemary Slote during her presentation.

One female prospective juror told Naso she found his mocking of the prosecutor objectionable.

Naso is charged with murdering four women with matching initials: Roxene Roggasch in 1977, Carmen Colon in 1978, Pamela Parsons in 1993 and Tracy Tafoya in 1994.

Prosecutors found dozens of photos shot by Naso in his Reno home of women who appeared to be dead.
