- A convicted sex offender has pleaded no contest to two counts of murdering six-year-old boys. Kenneth Rasmuson is accused of killing two six-year-old boys five years apart. One of the boys, Jeffrey Vargo, was taken right in front of his home in Anaheim Hills back in 1981. His body was found in Pomona.

Now Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer had pleaded with the judge there to move that case to his county. Now that's all because of LA County District Attorney George Gascón's decision to remove special circumstances and enhancements in the Rasmuson case, which could see him paroled from prison much earlier if convicted. But now, at today's no contest plea, Rasmuson is expected to be sentenced April 27th to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
