Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced the charges Thursday against Joseph James DeAngelo.

Authorities suspect DeAngelo killed Greg Sanchez and his girlfriend Cheri Domingo on July 27, 1981 inside a home near Goleta where Domingo had been house-sitting.

Holes suggested the encounter may have encouraged the killer to rethink his tactics as he committed one more known murder five years later.

DeAngelo was also been charged with killing Robert Offerman, an orthopedic surgeon and Alexandria Manning, a psychologist, in their condo in December 1979.

Investigators finally cracked the Sacramento case, which has long haunted victims' families and law enforcement, by comparing crime scene DNA to genetic information on commercial genealogy websites that consumers use to explore their ancestry.

Each of the four new first-degree murder charges carries a possible sentence of death or life in prison without parole.

It is unknown when DeAngelo will appear in a Santa Barbara County courtroom to face the charges since he is facing murder charges in several other counties, including Sacramento, Ventura, and Orange counties.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the Golden State Killer is thought to be responsible for a dozen murders and 50 rapes, all crimes committed across 10 CA counties in the decade between 1976 and 1986. He was arrested last month and remains jailed in Sacramento County.

DeAngelo's attorney, Diane Howard, did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
