SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KGO) -- Joseph DeAngeleo, better known as the suspected Golden State Killer , was arrested back in 1996 by Sacramento police and later let go.
DeAngelo was a suspect in a gas station robbery, but the charges were ultimately dismissed.
He was arrested last April after investigators used DNA evidence to link him to a crime scene.
He is accused of at least 13 murders and numerous sexual assaults dating back to the 1970's.
