SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — Accused serial killer Joseph Naso resumed his plea to Northern California jurors to find him not guilty of killing four young prostitutes decades ago.
The Marin Independent Journal (http://bit.ly/12jZRtr) reported Monday that resumption of Naso's closing argument were delayed so the judge could talk to jurors about a message written on the truck of one of the victim's brothers.
The paper reported that the brother wrote on his truck parked outside the Marin County Courthouse that Naso killed his sister. The judge interviewed each of the six women and six men who comprise the jury plus the nine alternates and determined the message had no effect on the trial. Naso was scheduled to wrap up his arguments later Monday and prosecutors are scheduled to deliver their rebuttal to his remarks next.
