Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, Santa Barbara District Attorney Joyce Dudley, and Ventura County District Attorney Gregory Totten met today at the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office with members of their staff and representatives of various law enforcement agencies involved to discuss the next steps in the prosecution of Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, Citrus Heights.

Many important issues were discussed, but no decisions were made regarding where the case may be tried or the composition of the trial team.

All agencies are united in their resolve to ensure DeAngelo is held accountable for the crimes he is accused of committing throughout California.

The District Attorneys are scheduled to meet in late June to discuss further details while their staff will continue to prepare this case for trial.

There will be no further comment regarding this matter.
