Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -  Another delay has been approved in the Cleveland Strangler murder trial.

The new trial date for suspected serial strangler Anthony Sowell is June 6th, 2011.

Prosecutors filed for the extension because they had a conflict with the May 2011 date.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutors say they understand families of the victims may not be happy waiting for justice.

Anthony Sowell is accused of murdering eleven women. Their bodies were found at a home on Imperial Avenue where Anthony Sowell lived.
