A 72-year-old former police officer has been arrested in the decades-old "Golden State Killer" case in California. Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested without a struggle in Citrus Heights in Sacramento County. He's believed to have killed at least 12 people, raped at least 45 people and committed multiple home burglaries in the 1970s and 1980s in crime sprees throughout California. Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones told reporters the arrest came after a long manhunt. Susie Ferguson talks to our correspondent in San Francisco Rachel Silverman.
