A man known as the "Westside rapist", who terrorised Los Angeles suburbs in the 1970s, has been jailed for life on seven murder counts.

John Floyd Thomas, 74, pleaded guilty on Friday and was sentenced to seven life terms, with no chance of parole.

Thomas was charged in 2009 after new DNA testing linked him to attacks in which middle-aged and elderly women were raped and choked in their homes.

Police have said they believe he may be responsible for as many as 30 killings.
