- New Tonight, prosecutors are not going for the death penalty for the inmate accused of murdering the so-called I-5 Strangler. Today, the Amador County DA filed murder charges against Jason Budrow. He's accused of killing Roger Kibbe inside their cell at the Mule Creek Prison in Ione, back in February. Budrow claims he strangled Kibbe to avenge the victims of the I-5 Strangler. Kibbe was convicted of kidnapping women from their cars, killing them, and dumping their bodies along highways.
