On Wednesday, a judge sentenced the convicted serial killer known as the "Grim Sleeper" to death for 10 known murders in the city of Los Angeles that spanned over decades. Lonnie Franklin Jr. was officially sentenced Wednesday for the killing of a teenage girl and nine women in a section of the city between 1985 and 2007. Franklin Jr. earned his moniker for an apparent hiatus in the slayings, though authorities now believe that he could be linked to other unsolved murders. The crimes took Los Angeles police years to solve and community members often complained that detectives didn't give the slayings enough attention because the victims were black and were mostly drug addicts.
