Suspected serial killer appears in court

November 13, 2009 10:40:44 AM PST
A registered sex offender from Cleveland has pleaded not guilty to an alleged attack that prompted a search and the discovery of 11 bodies at his home. Anthony Sowell, 50, appeared in court Friday and entered not guilty pleas to charges of rape, kidnapping, attempted murder and felonious assault. The charges are from Sowell's arrest last month in a Sept. 22 sexual attack. The report of the attack led to the search of his home.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge John O'Donnell set bond at $1 million on the charges and continued Sowell's $5 million bond from last week, when he was charged with five counts of aggravated murder.

The judge appointed a lawyer for Sowell. The attorney, Brian McGraw, had no immediate comment.
