Day 10: Jury selection for Anthony Sowell murder trial continues

It's day ten of the Anthony Sowell murder trial and jurors continue to be questioned.

Late Wednesday, 162 jurors were asked what they knew about this case and the death penalty.

In all, about 200 jurors will be interviewed before attorneys start making their final picks.

Anthony Sowell is accused of murdering eleven Cleveland area women. The victims' bodies were discovered at Sowell's home on Imperial Avenue back in October 2009.

Some of the bodies were found hidden inside of the home, others were buried in the backyard.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Officer determined strangulation to be the main cause of the death in most cases.
