Ill. man accused of 5 murders

August 6, 2009 Andrew Urdiales has been charged with murders in Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties. In the 1980s, he was a U.S. Marine stationed in Southern California.

Authorities have now charged him with five murders there between 1984 and 1995. Urdiales moved to Illinois in 1996.

He was convicted of killing three Illinois women in 2002 and 2004. Urdiales is now appealing his death sentence, and when that process is over, he will be extradited to California to face the latest charges.
