In a surprising turn of events, Golden State Killer suspect Joseph DeAngelo has offered to plead guilty in exchange for a life sentence.
DeAngelo, who is suspected of killing at least 13 people, has been incarcerated in the Sacramento County Main Jail since his arrest in April 2018. According to DeAngelo's defense team, he would be willing to plead guilty if the death penalty was taken off the table.
"Mr. DeAngelo is 74 years old," his defense wrote in a motion filed this week. "He has offered to plead to the charges with a lifetime sentence."
No other details about the conditions of such a deal were made public.
