Authorities on Thursday filed four additional murder charges against the suspected Golden State Killer over killings that took place in 1979 and 1981 in Santa Barbara County, bringing the number of charges he faces to 12.

Joseph DeAngelo, 72, is accused of at least a dozen murders and more than 50 rapes across California in the 1970s and '80s.

He has been charged with four killings in Orange County, two in Ventura County and two in Sacramento County.

DeAngelo now faces four counts of first-degree murder with special circumstances in Santa Barbara, though it was unclear when he might appear in court there.

In addition to the killings, the Golden State Killer is suspected in about 45 rapes and multiple residential burglaries between 1976 and 1986. He was a police officer in the California towns of Exeter and Auburn during the 70s.

"This has been an ongoing discussion all district attorneys have been having, one that will not be decided tomorrow", Dudley said.
