SANDUSKY, Ohio -- A northern Ohio man convicted of killing a woman and her two young children has been sentenced to death.
A county judge in Sandusky decided Thursday to accept a jury's recommendation of the death penalty for 42-year-old Curtis Clinton. The same jury had convicted Clinton of aggravated murder and rape.
Clinton had denied killing 23-year-old Heather Jackson, her 3-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son at a Sandusky home. A message seeking comment was left for Clinton's attorney.
The woman and children 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.
