SANTA ANA, Calif. -- A law enforcement official says two sex offenders charged with killing four California women while wearing GPS tracking devices had twice fled the state while under supervision of authorities.

The source who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the investigation told The Associated Press on Friday, May 23, that Steven Gordon and Franc Cano were arrested together in Alabama in 2010. They again fled to Las Vegas in 2012 after cutting off their GPS ankle monitors.

Parole violation reports released to the AP under a California public records request show Cano was arrested on Oct. 22, 2010, and had cut off his GPS tracker.

Gordon was arrested on the same day for fleeing supervision.

The AP previously reported on the pair's 2012 flight to Las Vegas.
