Jurors in Cleveland have convicted Anthony Sowell, 51, of 11 murders and must now decide whether or not to recommend the death penalty.

The Cuyahoga County jury convicted Sowell of aggravated murder counts and other related offenses.

The verdict came after 15 hours of deliberations.

On Aug. 1, the jury will hear from Sowell's attorneys who will argue to spare Sowell's life.
