The man suspected of killing ten women in the Los Angeles area since 1985 has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Prosecutors say Lonnie Franklin Jr. is the "Grim Sleeper," so named because they say he killed twice in the 1980's, but then took a 14-year pause before he killed again.

Franklin was arrested last month when authorities say they were able to connect him to the crimes through DNA.
