PONTIAC, Mich., Nov. 16 (UPI) -- A man who has already done time for killing women can be tried for first-degree murder for a 1968 killing in Pontiac, Mich., a judge has ruled.

Nolan Ray George, 67, confessed to raping and strangling Gwendolyn Perry, 36, after he was arrested a few months later for killing another woman, the Detroit Free Press reported. A judge ruled Monday his admissions and the killing of Frances Brown can be used by the prosecution.

George was not prosecuted for Perry's killing at the time. He ended up serving a relatively short time in prison for Brown's killing and then moving to Ohio where he was once again convicted and once again served a short sentence.

At the time of his most recent arrest, he was living in Hamilton, Ohio, and working as a handyman.

Oakland County Assistant Prosecutor John Skrzynski argued during the preliminary hearing that George planned to kill his victims.

"He enjoyed strangling these women," Skrzynski said. "He liked to see them kick and jerk and move their arms around."
