'Rockefeller' murder case

A man who calls himself Clark Rockefeller was charged with murder last night in the disappearance of a California man more than 25 years ago.

German national Christian Gerhartsreiter became notorious after his arrest several years ago in Baltimore when he spun elaborate tales about his past and claimed to be a member of the Rockefeller family.

He was charged yesterday with killing 27-year-old John Sohus in 1985 in San Marino, Los Angeles.
