LOS ANGELES, Calif.  — Authorities on Monday said they have arrested a 72-year-old man in connection with the slayings of three women in the late 1980s, alleging he is a serial killer who operated in Los Angeles as well as in Florida and the Gulf Coast region.

Samuel Little, 72, has been extradited to California from Kentucky, where he was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service in early September on an unrelated criminal warrant, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Little was charged Monday by the L.A. County district attorney’s office with three murder counts and special circumstances for multiple murder. No immediate decision has been made whether to pursue the death penalty against Little.
