SAN RAFAEL, Calif. —
A jury has been selected in the death penalty case against Joseph Naso, who is charged with the decades-old murders of four Northern California women.
The Marin Independent Journal reports that the 12-person panel was finalized Wednesday after weeks of jury selection.
The 79-year-old Naso is serving as his own attorney. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and questioned many of the prospective jurors himself.
Naso is charged with murdering 18-year-old Roxene Roggasch in 1977; 22-year-old Carmen Colon in 1978; 38-year-old Pamela Parsons in 1993; and 31-year-old Tracy Tafoya in 1994.
Investigators say Naso's DNA was found on one victim, and a trove of photographs of dead or unconscious women was found in his Reno home.
Opening statements are scheduled for Monday.
