SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Arraignment has been delayed for two sex offenders charged with the rape and murder of four California women while the men wore GPS tracking monitors.

City News Service reports Friday that 28-year-old Franc Cano and 45-year-old Steven Dean Gordon will be arraigned Oct. 29.

The two men were indicted Thursday on charges of murder with special circumstances and forcible rape. They were initially scheduled for arraignment Friday.

Prosecutors say Cano and Gordon worked together to sexually assault and kill four women since last fall while the men wore tracking devices ordered after prior sex crimes. Authorities say the monitoring systems helped investigators link the pair to the slayings after one woman’s body was found at a trash sorting plant.

The men were arrested and charged with the crimes in April.
