On the show, Alcala beat out two other bachelors to win a date with “bachelorette” Cheryl Bradshaw. The couple appeared to get along well on the program, but police said Bradshaw later decided against going on the date.
Rodney Alcala can be extradited to New York to face charges in two killings, California’s highest court has ruled.
The decision was handed down on Wednesday by the California Supreme Court. In making the decision, the justices rejected claims by the convicted serial killer that such a move would undermine his efforts to appeal his California conviction.
In August, California Gov. Jerry Brown and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed off on Alcala’s transfer to New York to face charges of intentional murder, felony murder and murder in the second degree in connection with the killing of two New York women in 1970s. The women have been identified as Cornelia “Michel” Crilley and Ellen Hover.
Crilley, a TWA flight attendant, was raped and strangled in 1971. At the time, authorities initially suspected that the boyfriend of Crilley, then 23, was responsible. Authorities now claim to have forensic evidence that links Alcala to the scene.
