Grand Jury Indicts 'Grim Sleeper' on 11 Counts

Comstock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- A grand jury indicted a man accused of being the "Grim Sleeper" serial killer in Los Angeles Thursday.

Lonnie David Franklin Jr., 58, was indicted on 10 counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. Franklin was arrested on July 7 after DNA evidence linked him to the murders.

The "Grim Sleeper's" first killing spree lasted between August 1985 and September 1988 and left seven girls dead. The second occurred between March 2002 and January 2007.

Franklin will return to court for a pre-trial hearing on April 4.
