Rodney Alcala Pleads Not Guilty in New Yorkon June 22, 2012 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Thursday afternoon, Rodney Alcala pleaded “not guilty” in the murders of Cornelia Crilley and Ellen Hover. Wearing an orange jumpsuit with his long gray hair in a ponytail, these were the only words he said.
Outside the courtroom, District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said:
After more than three decades, the defendant will finally face the justice system in New York for the murder of two victims. Today’s arraignment brings us a step closer to obtaining justice for Ms. Crilley and Ms. Hover.
A NYPD source told the AP on condition of anonymity that a forensic dentist has tied a bite mark on Cornelia’s body to Alcala.
