Rodney Alcala Extradition to New York Approvedon February 8, 2012 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Marin County Judge Paul Haakenson ruled Tuesday that Rodney Alcala can be extradited to New York. He was indicted there last year in the strangling deaths of two women.
Alcala was resisting extradition, claiming he needed to prepare to appeal his death penalty sentence in California. He was sentenced to death in Orange County in 2010 for the murders of four women and a 12-year-old girl.
In New York, he is charged with the murders of Cornelia Crilley and Ellen Hover. Cornelia, a TWA flight attendant, was raped and strangled in her apartment in 1971. Ellen, an aspiring orchestra conductor, disappeared in 1977, and was found a year later on the Rockefeller estate in Westchester County.
