Week 3: Potential juror questioning continues; court canceled Tuesday

Week 3 of jury selection in the Cleveland Strangler case.

As of noon Monday, 189 potential jurors have been questioned. 77 will be called back.

The court will take Tuesday off because there was a death in the family of one of the defense attorneys.

When court resumes on Wednesday, general questioning will begin. So far, the questioning has only been on the death penalty. The potential pool of jurors will then be narrowed down and a final 12 will be selected.

Anthony Sowell is accused of killing eleven women and burying their bodies in and around his Imperial Avenue home.

He faces the death penalty.
