Prosecutor says serial killer deserves to die


Convicted serial killer Joseph Naso deserves to die for the murders of four prostitutes and likely the murders of two other women, a Marin County prosecutor said this morning.

Naso, 79,  of Reno, Nev., was convicted Aug. 20 of strangling Roxene Roggasch, Tracy Tafoya, Pamela Parsons and Carmen Colon. Their bodies were found off of rural roads in Contra Costa, Marin and Yuba counties between 1977 and 1994. Their deaths can be considered aggravating evidence to support the jury’s recommendation of the death penalty.

The prosecution also introduced Naso’s “rape diary” that chronicles his alleged sexual assaults over several decades. Naso was expected to give his closing argument this afternoon.
