The man accused of being the Golden State Killer agreed to plead guilty Monday to 13 counts of first-degree murder in Sacramento in a deal that will spare him the death penalty. Joseph DeAngelo, 74, a former police officer, had agreed to plead guilty to committing the crimes across California in the 1970s and 1980s.

As part of the plea agreement, he will be required to register as a sex offender and pay restitution to the victims or their families in an amount to be determined, as well as any fees or fines. He will be sentenced at a later date to life without the possibility of parole. Notably, this case is believed to be the first high-profile case to be cracked with genetic genealogy.
