Nearly four years after her daughter was slain by a spree killer, Jan Baxter took the stand and told a Los Angeles Superior Court jury what it meant to lose her eldest and dearest child. "It totally destroyed me," Jan Baxter, dressed in black, said through tears. "When my son-in-law called me and told me that her pickup truck had been found on fire and there was a body in it, I started screaming and I couldn't stop. I held a pillow on my face, so that everyone wouldn't hear me."

Attorneys in the Glen Edward Rogers murder trial delivered their closing arguments Thursday, leaving a jury to decide the fate of the alleged cross-country serial killer who has already been convicted in Florida. The arguments put an end to a rapid-fire trial that finished in just over a week's time and featured the unusual sight of Rogers, a man on Florida's death row, taking the stand in his own defense.

An alleged serial killer already sentenced to death in Florida can be extradited to face another murder charge in California, the Florida Supreme Court ruled Thursday. Glen Rogers, a former drifter, was sentenced to death in Tampa a year ago for stabbing to death Tina Marie Cribbs, a hotel maid who met him at a bar and offered him a ride to a nearby carnival. Authorities say Rogers killed three other women, all redheaded like Cribbs, in three states besides Florida.

An extraordinary three-day conference hosted by federal officials to co-ordinate prosecution strategy against alleged serial killer Glen Rogers ended Friday with no recommendation as to which of six states should try him first.

Alleged serial killer Glen Edward Rogers was captured about 120 miles from his hometown Monday after leading police on a high-speed chase in a car that belonged to a Florida woman believed to be the third victim in a vicious, cross-country killing spree that began in Van Nuys seven weeks ago. Rogers--the subject of a nationwide manhunt--was spotted mid-afternoon on a two-lane road just east of here by a state police detective who carried a photo of the fugitive in his car.

Suspected serial killer Glen Rogers, who is charged with strangling a Van Nuys woman at the start of a cross-country murder rampage, was sentenced Friday to die in Florida's notoriously quirky electric chair for the murder of a woman near Tampa. Rogers, 34, showed little emotion as he stood in a Tampa courtroom and heard Judge Diana Allen follow a jury's recommendation that he should be executed for the gruesome murder of Tina Marie Cribbs.

In a key ruling, the judge who will preside over the capital murder trial of suspected serial killer Glen Rogers in a Van Nuys slaying agreed Thursday to allow the jury to hear details of two of the three out-of-state killings he allegedly committed. Now prosecutors will be able to portray Rogers to the jury as a serial killer whose hatred for women led him to pick up Sandra Gallagher at a Van Nuys bar with the intention of killing her, just as he did with other women later.

Sandra Gallagher was murdered three years ago. Strangled. Then the body of the 33-year-old mother of three was set afire in her pickup truck, parked outside an apartment building in Van Nuys. Given those facts, what family would not want to be sure that the man charged with such a monstrous crime would stand trial?

The bars here fill up quickly on weekend nights, when eligible men and women, and even some married folk, gather to shoot pool, dance and drink. These watering holes, where beer is served in bottles and liquor in plastic cups, are about the only diversion for the young in this blue-collar city north of Cincinnati. With depression gripping both the economy and the people, the bars draw regulars seeking company and comfort.
