Jury visit home of man charged with killing 11 black women

JURORS toured the home of a man charged with killing 11 black women and then living among their corpses, earlier this week.

In the first day of the trail of, Anthony Sowell, 51, on this week the jury was made to visit to the crime scene were the bodies of the women were kept.

Described as '11 poor black women' it has been reported that Sowell lured the victims into his East Cleveland, Ohio, home by offering drugs and alcohol, before they were killed.

The women's bodies were found by police buried throughout the home and backyard of Sowell's home, in November 2009.

Prosecutor in the case, Richard Bombik, told the jury in the Cleveland court: "You are about to begin a rather disturbing journey…it will be burned into your memory for as long as you live."

Defence Attorney, John Parker, has said that despite the discovery of the bodies there is no DNA evidence linking Sowell to the women.

Sowell has pleaded not guilty to killing the women and faces the death penalty if convicted.
