Anthony Sowell committed his crimes around Cleveland between 2007 and 2009. He kidnapped and killed 11 women, in addition to abusing corpses. He is also guilty of rape.
He pleaded not guilty to 85 charges against him. Sowell claimed he committed his crimes in episodes of madness. The jurors, however, felt that it was indeed guilty of 84 charges after two days of deliberation with the sole not guilty verdict coming on an aggravated robbery charge.
Anthony Sowell will undergo another trial to determine his sentence. If he is convicted, he could be sentenced to death.
