Judge gives Lee more months for appeal

BATON ROUGE (AP) — A convicted south Louisiana serial killer was back in a state district court for a hearing related to his appeal in the death of Charlotte Murray Pace.

District Judge Richard Anderson on Monday gave attorneys for Derrick Todd Lee four more months to look over evidence as the case continues.

Lee was convicted of first-degree murder and given a death sentence in October 2004 for the 2002 death of Murray Pace of Baton Rouge. He was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison in August 2004 in the death Geralyn Barr DeSoto of Addis.

He’s also suspected of killing five other women, including Gina Wilson Green of Natchez.

Lee is scheduled for an August hearing in West Baton Rouge Parish in connection with DeSoto’s death.
