SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A former U.S. Marine who was convicted of
three murders in Illinois will be returned to California to be tried in
five other murder cases, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Andrew
Urdiales, 47, will arrive Thursday to be prosecuted in killings
committed in Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties from 1986 to 1995,
the Orange County district attorney said.

Urdiales was convicted in 2002 in Illinois for killing two women and again in 2004 for killing a third.

He
is accused of killing four of the Southern California women while
stationed at various military facilities in the three-county region and
of killing the fifth while on vacation in Palm Springs in 1995.

Among the alleged victims: Robbin Brandley, a Saddleback College student killed in 1986.
