ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A jury has recommended the death penalty for a man who murdered a pregnant woman nearly a quarter century ago in California, and raped a different woman in West Michigan.

Investigators say 42-year-old Jason Balcom attacked 22-year-old Malinda Gibbons in her Costa Mesa, Calif. apartment in 1988.
