SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Jurors are recommending the death penalty for a northern Ohio man convicted in the deaths of a woman and her two young children just over a year ago.
The jury in Sandusky came back with its decision Tuesday, a week after finding 42-year-old Curtis Clinton guilty of aggravated murder and rape. A judge will decide Thursday whether to accept the jury's recommendation.
Clinton denied killing 23-year-old Heather Jackson, her 3-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son at a Sandusky home. They were killed in September 2012.
Police officers said that they found the children's bodies behind boxes in a utility closet and that the woman's body was under a mattress.
