Convicted serial killer Joseph Naso asked a Marin County jury to spare his life during his two-hour closing argument Monday afternoon.
The testimony at the penalty phase of Joseph Naso’s quadruple murder trial in Marin County Superior Court ended late Friday afternoon with a woman, who believes Naso drugged her during a modeling photography session, stating she does not want him put to death.
The ex-wife of convicted serial killer Joseph Naso testified Wednesday morning she believes she was sexually assaulted by two men in a hotel room after Naso put a “knockout drug” in her drink at a San Francisco nightclub in the summer of 1976.
The penalty phase of convicted serial killer Joseph Naso’s Marin County Superior Court trial ended Tuesday morning with a testy exchange between Naso and Judge Andrew Sweet after the jury left for a lunch break.

Marin County jurors presiding over the trial of an elderly photographer accused of being a serial killer who murdered four Northern California prostitutes began deliberating late Monday.
Accused serial killer Joseph Naso said Friday morning that the prosecution’s case alleging that he killed four prostitutes in Northern California is based on illegal, circumstantial evidence, opinion, speculation and conjecture.
