Suspect In Slayings Of 11 Women Indicted On New Charges

CLEVELAND (AP) - A prosecutor says a suspect in the slayings of
11 women in Cleveland has been indicted on new charges involving an
attack on another woman.
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason tells The Associated Press
that 50-year-old Anthony Sowell (SOH'-wehl) was charged Thursday
with the rape, felonious assault and kidnapping of a 36-year-old
Cleveland woman at his home. Mason says Sowell attacked the woman
in September 2008, more than a year before the decomposing remains
of the 11 other women were found in and around his home.
Sowell has pleaded not guilty to charges including aggravated
murder. Authorities say he lured vulnerable women to his home and
attacked them.
Since November, Sowell has been charged with attacking five
other women who survived.
