SACRAMENTO, Calif.—The Golden State Killer case is still developing as we learn the state of California will compensate his victims.

Under the 2018 Budget Bill the state would provide victim compensation benefits.

The compensation would include harm incurred while preparing to testify.

One of those victims is Jennifer Carole.

Carole was just 18 in 1980 when the suspect murdered her parents in their Ventura home.

Carole said, “Having caught him has made me think of the crime all the time, which is essentially like opening an old wound. If the money allows us to heal or get counseling or participate in a way that gets closure, that's powerful."

The California Victim Compensation Board says the amount of money each victim receives will be determined on a case by case basis.

The board has already gotten inquiries from 25 victims from four different counties.
