BBC News

A US man has been sentenced to death for the murders of 11 women whose remains he kept in his house in Ohio.

Anthony Sowell was found guilty last month of aggravated murder, kidnapping, and other charges in the 11 deaths.

At court in Cleveland, the 51-year-old sat with his eyes closed as Judge Dick Ambrose read aloud the details of each murder, before passing sentence.

Sowell faces death by lethal injection, and has the right to appeal the sentence.
