A prosecutor told jurors Monday he will prove a cold-case murder allegation against the German immigrant who spent years moving through U.S. society under a series of aliases, most notoriously posing as a member of the fabled Rockefeller family. He has pleaded not guilty to the killing of John Sohus, 27, who disappeared with his wife, Linda, in 1985 while Gerhartsreiter, using an alias, was a guest cottage tenant at the home of Sohus' mother, where the couple lived.(AP Photo/Nick Ut )
