Prospective Jurors Questioned in Anthony Sowell Caseon June 6, 2011 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
A jury pool of 200 potentials was brought into the Cleveland courthouse today in preparation for the Anthony Sowell trial. The pool was divided into groups of fifteen people, and brought into the courtroom for orientation. They were then questioned individually about the death penalty and other pertinent topics.
Sowell stood at attention as each group was brought in. Sowell is a former U.S. Marine.
Only two members of each of Sowell’s alleged victims was allowed in the courtroom. One held up a picture of a victim to jurors.
If Sowell is found guilty, jurors will then decide whether he should be sentenced to death. A death sentence must be unanimous.
