Victims fly to California to see accused serial killer

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Three victims of a notorious Northern California serial killer and rapist say they are feeling relief after flying to California's capital city to see the alleged attacker behind bars for the first time.

They were among nearly a dozen victims and survivors who showed up Thursday for a routine court hearing in the case against 72-year-old former police officer Joseph DeAngelo.

Jane Carson-Sandler, who traveled from South Carolina, was one of dozens of women raped by the elusive Golden State Killer. DeAngelo is charged with killing 12 people across California in the 1970s and 80s.

Debbi Domingo came from Texas to see the man charged with killing her mother.

One of the killer's youngest victims, Margaret Wardlow, was raped at age 13. She called seeing DeAngelo "intense."
