Accused Craigslist killer Philip Markoff has now been charged in a third case involving a woman he found on the website and held up in a hotel room, this one in Rhode Island. Markoff is accused of tying up a stripper and robbing her at gunpoint in a similar fashion to the incident three days before in which he's accused of killing the Upper West Side's Julissa Brisman in Boston. Rhode Island Attorney General Patrick Lynch said, "We look for every measure of justice, particularly in a case like this where a life was taken." At a press conference announcing the charges, the Attorney General also had some unkind words for Craig Newmark, who has been publicly defending keeping his website's Erotic Services section open. Lynch said, "The guy from Craigslist was on TV. He said it was only one incident. I think it was totally irresponsible. It was a murder."
