When Dale Hausner, a suspect in the Serial Shooter case, faces multiple murder charges later this year, jurors will be able to hear recordings in which he and his accomplice say they wanted to "kill 500."\

Thomas says he OK'd wiretaps to 'stop killing'

Defense lawyers had tried to ban the police wiretaps, saying investigators didn't get the proper approval. But Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Roland Steinle disagreed and ruled Monday to allow them as evidence.

Investigators recorded Hausner in August 2006, just before arresting him with his roommate, Samuel Dieteman. Dieteman has since pleaded guilty to two murder counts.
