On Wednesday afternoon, Cleveland jurors recommended the death sentence for serial killer Anthony Sowell. The judge, who can still impose a life sentence, will deliver his ruling at 9:00 a.m. Friday.

On July 22, 2001, jurors convicted Sowell of eleven counts of aggravated murder and more than seventy other charges, including abusing corpses and kidnapping.

In 2009, police found the bodies of eleven women at Sowell’s Cleveland home. For months, neighbors had complained of a terrible smell emanating from the neighborhood, and police had been to Sowell’s house many times as Sowell was on probation for other crimes.
