Los Angeles police have reportedly widened the number of cases that may be linked to "Grim Sleeper" suspect Lonnie Franklin Jr. to as many as 230 missing persons and unsolved killings.

Franklin has pleaded not guilty to the murders of 10 women.

Detectives have already been looking at about 60 unsolved cases from the early 1980s until Franklin's arrest in July 2010.

Now investigators are looking into more cases in South Los Angeles, dating back to 1976 when Franklin got out of the army.
