Serial killer Anthony Sowell faces death by lethal injection

A serial killer in the US who hid the remains of 11 women in his home and garden in Ohio has been sentenced to death.

The court heard that Anthony Sowell - a former US marine - had lured poor, often drug-addicted women into his home with alcohol or narcotics.

He was found guilty last month of aggravated murder, kidnapping and other charges.

The BBC's Daniel Griffiths reports.
