NEW YORK (AP) — A convicted California serial killer is on his way to New York to face charges of killing two women in the 1970s.
The Manhattan district attorney's office tells The Associated Press that Rodney Alcala is on a plane with U.S. marshals. They're expected to land in New York on Wednesday afternoon.
It's still unclear who will represent him in court.
The former amateur photographer and dating-show contestant was convicted in 2010 of strangling four women and a 12-year-old girl in Southern California in the 1970s. He is appealing his conviction.
After that conviction, he was charged in Manhattan with murdering two 23-year-old women in New York. One was strangled in 1971. The other disappeared in 1977, and her body was found the next year.
