george nolan 11 15 10 Serial Killer To Face Trial For 1968 MurderPontiac District Judge Rhonda Gross has ordered suspected serial killer Nolan George, of Ohio, to stand trial for a 1968 murder.

George, 67, who has served prison terms in Michigan and Ohio for two similar murders, is charged with first-degree, premeditated murder in the 1968 slaying of Gwendolyn Perry.

WWJ’s Florence Walton reports 42 years ago George confessed to strangling Perry during a rape in her car. George was never tried until now, because his confession was made following his guilty plea to manslaughter in another killing.

Defense attorney, Michael McCarthy tried to keep 4-decade-old confession from being admitted as evidence, arguing that George “relied upon the assurance that there would be no prosecution.”

Assistant Oakland County Prosecutor John Skrzynski said that George made his confession voluntarily to the Pontiac detective, and regularly bragged to inmates about his murder victims. The judge allowed the confession.

The Ohio ex-con is a suspect in several other murders.
