A former law student is a "viable suspect" in the Green River slayings, the nation's worst serial murder case, according to court documents. The case involves the deaths of 41 women and the disappearance of at least eight others in Washington and Oregon from 1982 to 1985. Almost all of the victims were linked to prostitution. William Jay Stevens II, 38, was named in an affidavit filed to support a search warrant for two of his residences in Spokane, Wash. He has not been charged.

His family adores him. Close friends support him. Former co-workers boast he was personable, bright, a hard worker. But the question for Randy Steven Kraft is whether their testimony, if it happens, will be enough to spare him from a death verdict. The 44-year-old computer consultant, convicted by a jury two months ago of 16 Orange County murders, returns to Superior Court in Santa Ana on Monday as his attorneys begin their case in the penalty phase of the trial.
