Three '80s murders charged to suspected 'serial killer'

The LAPD says that Samuel Little, 72, has been extradited to California from Kentucky and charged in the murders of three South Los Angeles women. DNA evidence links Little to the crimes, investigators say.

The LA Times reports that the three local victims were Carol Alford, 41, found dead on July 13, 1987; Audrey Nelson, 35, found Aug. 14, 1989; and Guadalupe Apodaca, 46, found Sept. 2, 1989.

Little has a long criminal rap sheet and has been linked to killings in several states.
