Prosecutors on Tuesday filed murder charges against a serial rapist who they say killed a Sherman Oaks woman in her bedroom in 1981 and eluded prosecution for 15 years, until he was arrested on suspicion of another killing. Los Angeles police detectives unearthed new evidence against Edward Perreira, 40, after an article in The Times in March detailed how he had apparently slipped through the cracks in the criminal justice system, authorities said.

Putting a 19-year-old murder case to rest, a notorious serial rapist and convicted killer pleaded no contest Wednesday to manslaughter charges for the slaying of a Sherman Oaks woman. Edward Perreira, 46, agreed to seven additional years in prison for killing Beth Field Silver, a 25-year-old newlywed whom he raped, robbed and shot at her home in 1981, prosecutors said.

A notorious 19-year-old murder case finally reached an end Thursday when the killer of a Sherman Oaks woman was sentenced to seven years in prison. Edward Perreira, 46, is already serving a 171-year sentence for a murder in the Bay Area. But Thursday's sentence by Superior Court Judge Michael Hoff--which was the result of a plea bargain--was significant nonetheless because of the uphill battle to bring Perreira to justice for the death of Beth Field Silver.

Nearly 15 years after Beth Field Silver was slain in her hillside home, prosecutors again are considering filing charges against the man who police have believed for more than a decade is responsible for her death. Twice before, the Los Angeles district attorney's office has refused to prosecute Michael Flores--although police say the convicted serial rapist has a distinct pattern that matches the slaying of Silver, a 26-year-old newlywed.

After a criminal career spanning 23 years of rape, robbery and murder, it seems that justice has finally caught up with Edward Perreira. Time and again, short sentences, early parole, unreliable witnesses, use of aliases, and mistakes by law enforcement authorities set the 45-year-old Brooklyn native free to commit more crimes.

The retired LAPD detective was on vacation in the San Francisco Bay Area last October, fiddling with his car radio as he drove, when a few words piercing the static set a dark little bell clanging deep in his memory: "Michael Flores . . . arrested for murder." Calling the local detective on the case, Bob Horowitz asked a favor: "Just tell me if the guy you have in jail has 'Eddie' tattooed on one of his biceps." Yes, why?
