CLEVELAND (AP) — Attorneys for a sex offender suspected of killing three Ohio women want evidence against the man thrown out.
Michael Madison's attorneys say police should have had a search warrant when they looked through a garage where a body was found.
Madison is charged with killing the women and leaving their bodies in trash bags in a rundown East Cleveland neighborhood. He has pleaded not guilty.
The bodies were found last July after police were called about an odor coming from a garage.
The Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/PbzAJU ) newspaper reports that Madison's attorneys also want a judge to dismiss other evidence including statements he made to police.
He is scheduled to go to trial July 21 and could face the death penalty if convicted.
