LOS ANGELES (AP) — A jury has recommended another death sentence for a man who's already on death row for murdering 10 women in the Los Angeles area.

The panel recommended Thursday that Chester D. Turner should be put to death for killing four other women between 1987 and 1997.

The former pizza deliveryman was convicted last week in the second spate of killings. City News Service says Turner will be sentenced Aug. 1.

In 2007 he was sentenced to die for killing 10 women, one of them pregnant.

Authorities say Turner was among several serial killers who stalked LA-area women during a crack cocaine epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s. Some attacks were dubbed the "Southside Slayer" killings.
