By From page A5 | April 12, 2011

A Nevada man released from an El Dorado County jail was arrested Monday on suspicion of killing four people.

Joseph Naso, 77, of Reno, was booked into the Marin County Jail on four counts of murder which, according to several news outlets, allegedly took place between the late 1970s and mid-1990s.

One of the victims was reportedly a Marin woman.

Naso had been serving time in the South Lake Tahoe jail for three counts of probation violation, said Sheriff’s Lt. Bryan Golmitz.

Naso was booked into the Marin County Jail Monday night and is currently being held without bail.

An arraignment was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in a Marin County Superior courtroom, according to the court’s calendar.

The Marin County District Attorney’s office scheduled a press conference for 11 a.m. Tuesday. Officials with the DA’s office declined to comment prior to the conference.
