The Grim Sleeper
The Grim Sleeper defendant, Lonnie Franklin Jr. (charged in the murders of ten black women, and suspected in as many as 31 other murders), was arraigned in LA today, and pleaded not guilty. His next appearance is scheduled for September 14. Will a date for the preliminary hearing be set?

John Floyd Thomas Jr. (suspected in the murders of 30 elderly white women), the Westside Rapist suspect, has a court date in October. The proceedings in this case are going as slow as frozen molasses, to use a Tennessee expression.
