Golden State Killer's victims continue with impact statements in Sacramento

More victims addressed confessed Golden State Killer, Joseph DeAngelo, inside a Sacremento County courtroom on Thursday.
FRESNO, Calif. -- More victims addressed confessed Golden State Killer, Joseph DeAngelo, inside a Sacramento County courtroom on Thursday.

DeAngelo was a former Exeter police officer and was also known as the "Visalia Ransacker," "East Area Rapist" and the "Original Night Stalker."

The daughter of Claude Snelling, the man DeAngelo shot and killed in Visalia in 1975, is expected to deliver her impact statement on Thursday.

The impact statements began Tuesday in the case against DeAngelo. Last month, he pleaded guilty last month to 13 murders and dozens of other crimes throughout California.

Some of his victims were from Orange County.

DeAngelo will be formally sentenced at the Sacramento State University ballroom on Friday. He will be sent to prison for the rest of his life without the possibility of parole.

DeAngelo was wheeled into court for the third and final day of the victim impact statements, wearing a mask. Some victims' family members noted he was given a sweatshirt to wear in court over his orange prison jumpsuit because he was cold - contrasting that kindness with the cruelty of his acts.

"If I had my way he would be shivering, blindfolded, naked and exposed every moment from now on," said Debbi McMullan, the daughter of one victim.

Said Ken Smith, the brother of another victim: "After you are sentenced, you will be a nobody. You are not worth any more of my family's time."
