Jury heads to home of Ohioan charged in 11 deaths

CLEVELAND (AP) - Jurors in the Cleveland trial of a man charged with killing 11 women and hiding their remains in and around his home are visiting the property before opening statements.
Under a sunny blue sky, a jury motorcade of four vans under police escort left the courthouse Monday morning for the fenced-off home of 51-year-old Anthony Sowell (SOH'-wehl). He passed on the chance to accompany jurors.
Sowell has pleaded not guilty. He faces the death penalty if convicted.
It took nearly three weeks to seat the jury from a pool of about 200 prospective jurors. Those who were chosen were driven to Sowell's home to look at the neighborhood, the inside of the house and the yards.
Opening statements in the trial are scheduled Monday afternoon.
