SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An upstate New York couple said authorities told them a man now charged in four California cold-case killings sought to torture the woman when they lived in San Francisco 30 years ago.

Margaret Prisco and Thaddeus Iorizzo said that a Nevada State Police detective contacted them last year and told them that Joseph Naso, who lived near them in an apartment building in the early 1980s, wrote about tormenting Prisco.

Three notebooks were among evidence found in Naso’s Reno, Nev., home after a probation violation.

Naso has not entered a plea to the murder charges.

Prisco told the Associated Press on Saturday that she didn’t know at the time that she was on a list of women Naso allegedly wanted to kill.

    I say the alll serial killers are exempt from the constitution and all laws that govern us all ! and be taken to the nearest ocean and put in to a slab of cement and dropped! It’s that wrong? think of the victims of such animals ! when you take a life out of passion or greed or even out of hate and misfortune can the devil’s advocate come to your rescue? I love to hear what his lawyer will say! insane defence?
