Suspected serial killer Glen Rogers on Friday was given one week to fight extradition to Florida, one of four states--including California--where he is wanted for murder. His attorney said he was "leaning toward" a court action challenging Kentucky Gov. Paul Patton's extradition order, signed on Thursday. Kentucky Atty. Gen. Ben Chandler said he recommended extradition to Florida because that state had the strongest case against Rogers and plans to ask for the death penalty.

A man who once said he had a compulsion to kill pleaded guilty Monday to murdering five outdoorsmen and was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 165 years. Thomas Lee Dillon, 43, entered his plea as part of a deal in which he avoided the death penalty. He admitted shooting the men while they hunted, fished or jogged in rural Ohio between April, 1989, and April, 1992.

"The Jeffrey Dahmer Murders" will not be coming to a theater near you--at least not anytime soon. The judge who presided over the notorious case of the Wisconsin candymaker-turned-cannibal had planned to write a book and authorize a screenplay based upon his accounts. But the mother of one of Dahmer's 17 victims is trying to stop the publication and survivors of other victims have filed suits seeking to prevent Dahmer from profiting by selling the rights to his story.

Jeffrey L. Dahmer has confessed to killing three more men, bringing to 15 the number of slayings he has admitted, police said Monday. Investigators said they have determined that three of the killings occurred at Dahmer's grandmother's home in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb. Police believe that Dahmer, in whose apartment 11 mutilated bodies were found last week, is responsible for at least 17 killings, including that of a hitchhiker in Ohio 13 years ago.

Investigators found more than 50 pieces of bone near mass-murder suspect Jeffrey L. Dahmer's boyhood home in Bath, Ohio, as they searched for the remains of a man who may have been his first victim. As many as 70% of the bones found were human, and some appeared to be skull fragments, officials said. In Milwaukee, police said Dahmer has now confessed to a total of 17 slayings.
