nocence, a teenager charged as the
third suspect in the string of 40
"Freeway Killer" slayings in Califor-
nia waived extradition yesterday and
agreed to return to Los Angeles to stand
trial.
James Munro, 19, was -arraigned in
72nd District Court on a California
warrant accusing him of one count of
murder in the grisly killings.
THE FREEWAY Killings case in-
volves the deaths of 44 young men
whose bodies have been found along
freeways in southern California since
1972. Most were strangled or smothered
and many were nude and sexually
molested. More than half were hit-
chhikers.
Munro was arrested by Michigan
State Police late Thursday at a cousin's
apartment in Port Huron. Police said
the cousin was not implicated in the
case.
Reporters asked Munro as he was
being taken to the courtroom from the
St. Clair County Jail if he was involved

in the killings.
"NO I WASN'T," he shouted. "I'm
going back to volunteer for court."
Det. Sgt. Gary Teeter of the state
police said Munro told investigators he
had lived for a period of time in Los
Angeles with William Bonin, a 33-year-
old trucker, Vietnam veteran and
registered sex offender.
Bonin and Vernon Butts, 22, a factory
worker and amateur magician, have
been charged in Los Angeles with a
combined total of 20 murder counts in
the case.

complaint against Munro, and the at-
