CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - After a little more than two weeks of testimony closing arguments are scheduled to begin Wednesday in the Michael Madison trial. He is accused of murdering Shetisha Sheeley, Angela Deskins and Shirellda Terry whose bodies were found in July 2013 in East Cleveland.
Police found the first victim on July 19, 2013 after answering a complaint about odors coming from an East Cleveland garage. Two more bodies were discovered the following day. All three were wrapped in plastic bags.
Madison was eventually arrested at his mother's home after a two-hour standoff with police.
His attorneys appealed to the Court of Appeals after a psychologist working for prosecutors interviewed him for three hours, but their appeal was denied.
A jury was seated on April 15 and since then, numerous witnesses and experts were called to testify as both sides presented their cases.
Madison faces the death penalty if convicted.
