(CBS/AP) CLEVELAND - Ohio serial killer Anthony Sowell has been sentenced to death after being convicted last month of murdering 11 women and dumping their remains around his Cleveland home.

Friday morning, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Dick Ambrose upheld a jury's recommendation earlier in the week that the 51-year-old Sowell be put to death. 
The judge announced that Sowell deserved to die after a 45-minute analysis of Sowell's crimes and background factors in Sowell's favor.
The serial killer was convicted last month on multiple counts of aggravated murder as well as kidnapping, corpse abuse and evidence tampering.
Sowell was arrested on Halloween 2009, two days after police went to his house on a sexual-assault complaint and began finding bodies. The discovery of the bodies was an embarrassment for Cleveland's police force, which was accused by victims' families of failing to properly investigate the disappearances because most of the women were addicted to drugs and lived in an impoverished neighborhood. Several victims' families filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city last year.
