SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Testimony has begun in the trial of a man suspected of strangling a northern Ohio woman and her two children in September 2012.
The Sandusky Register (http://bit.ly/1f2vc8d ) reports police officers and friends of the woman testified Tuesday at the trial of 42-year-old Curtis Clinton. One officer testified about finding the children's bodies behind boxes in a utility closet. Another recounted how the woman's body was found under a mattress.
Clinton has pleaded not guilty in the slayings of the 23-year-old woman, her 3-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son at a Sandusky home.
A jury of eight men and four women was selected to hear the case.
Prosecutors decided to pursue a possible death penalty for Clinton if he is convicted.
