Jurors have reached a verdict in the case of Joseph Naso, a Reno man accused of killing four women in the Bay Area and Yuba County between 1977 and 1994.
The verdict will be read at 2:15 p.m. in Marin County Superior Court in San Rafael.
Naso, 79, represented himself in the trial, which began in mid-June, with the help of an advisory counsel.
He is accused of killing Roxene Roggasch, 18, of Oakland, and Carmen Colon, a 22-year-old East Bay resident.
Roggasch was found dead off of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard west of Fairfax on Jan. 11, 1977. Colon's body was found near Carquinez Scenic Drive in Port Costa on Aug. 15, 1978.
Naso, a former commercial photographer, is also charged with the murders of Pamela Parsons, 38, and Tracy Tafoya, 31, who were found murdered in Yuba County in September 1993 and August 1994, respectively.
All four women are believed to have worked as prostitutes.
Deputy District Attorney Rosemary Slote told jurors in her closing argument that Naso picked the women up in his car, then later strangled them and disposed of their bodies.
Naso's DNA was found in semen collected from the pantyhose Roggasch was wearing when her body was found, prosecutors said.
Evidence against him included a handwritten list that prosecutors allege refers to at least seven women, including the four victims and some of the locations where their bodies were found.
During the trial, the prosecution presented 70 witnesses, and Naso called seven to the stand.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
