Prosecutors try to bring in new evidence in Anthony Sowell trialon July 14, 2011 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Two weeks ago, Vanessa Gay testified that she saw the body of a victim with no head in Anthony Sowell’s house. It was wrapped in plastic.
When the jury was looking at crime scene photos a few days later, Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Rick Bombik realized that plastic was still there. So he sent crime scene investigators back to the house last Saturday to take pictures of the plastic.
Wednesday, he attempted to have the photos entered into evidence. Naturally, the defense objected, saying that prosecutors more than a year and a half to produce evidence. Doing so in the midst of the trial was unacceptable.
Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Dick Ambrose agreed, and ruled the photos out.
