CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Suspected serial killer Anthony Sowell has another pre-trial Wednesday afternoon.

The suspected "Cleveland Strangler" will be in Judge Dick Ambrose's courtroom around 1 p.m.

In June, Judge Ambrose ruled against a motion to move Sowell's trial unless they could not seat a jury. He also banned all cameras and recording devices from all hearings until a jury is seated. After the jury has been seated, a pool camera will be allowed in the courtroom.

Sowell is accused of murdering eleven women and hiding their bodies all over his Imperial Avenue property. Cleveland detectives found five bodies inside the home and six bodies in the backyard.

19 Action News obtained exclusive photos from inside of Sowell's home during the investigation. Click here to view the GRAPHIC photos from inside the home.

Cleveland Police discovered the smell of death in the house in late October while investigating a rape report. The bodies continued to be found throughout the first week of November.
