Suspected serial killer appears in court

CLEVELAND, OH /*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.
