CLEVELAND, Ohio (AFP) - A serial killer who kept the decomposing bodies of 11 women in his Ohio home and yard for more than two years was sentenced to the death penalty Friday. Judge Dick Ambrose accepted the jury's recommendation and ruled that Anthony Sowell's troubled childhood and mental health issues did not mitigate the seriousness of his crimes. "The court gives no weight to the defendant's expression of remorse," Ambrose said in handing down the verdict. Sowell, 51, sat with his eyes closed as two women he raped but did not kill and the relatives of his victims shared their pain during the sentencing hearing.
