The California serial murderer and former contestant on "The Dating Game," was sentenced Monday to an additional 25 years to life for killing two women in New York in the 1970s.

Rodney Alcala was brought to New York to face charges here last year. He pleaded guilty last month so he could return to California, to pursue his appeal there. He was sentenced to the death penalty in California, for the killings of at least 5 women, according to court proceedings in California.

The charges in New York, stemmed from the death of a flight attendant in 1971, and the death of the daughter of a former nightclub owner, whose body was found in 1978 after she disappeared the year before.

Photographer and former contestant on the dating show represented himself at trial in California, which ended with his conviction for killing four women and a 12-year-old girl who lived in southern California in the 1970s.

In those murders, he was sentenced to death. The judge on Monday, held back tears while giving him a concurrent sentence of 25 years to life imprisonment.
