Sleeper case DNA doubt

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

The lawyer for a man charged with killing nine women and a 15-year-old girl in the ‘Grim Sleeper’ case in Los An­ge­les yes­ter­day sought to cast doubt in the minds of jurors by fo­cus­ing on DNA ev­i­dence. Lon­nie Franklin Jr, 63, (pic­tured) has pleaded not guilty to 10 mur­ders be­tween 1985 and 2007 in one of the city’s most no­to­ri­ous se­rial killer cases. The Grim Sleeper nick­name was coined be­cause of an ap­par­ent 14-year gap in the mur­ders be­tween 1988 and 2002. Franklin’s lawyer, Sey­mour Am­ster said there’s more to the case than meets the eye and that his de­fence will be cen­tred around DNA ev­i­dence found on the vic­tims that was not con­nected to Franklin.
