CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A jury recommends the death penalty for convicted serial killer Michael Madison. All 12 jurors made the recommendation. 

Madison was convicted of killing of three women in East Cleveland and wrapping their bodies in garbage bags.

Prosecutors told jurors Madison,38, deserves execution because of the circumstances surrounding the killings.

Defense attorneys argued Madison's life should be spared because of psychological damage caused by child abuse.

The jury convicted Madison of aggravated murder earlier this month for killing 38-year-old Angela Deskins, 28-year-old Shetisha Sheeley and 18-year-old Shirellda Terry. Their bodies were found near Madison's East Cleveland apartment in 2013.

The death penalty verdict by the jury is only a recommendation. The judge must decide to accept the recommendation or choose to sentence Madison to life in prison. Sentencing will be May 26.
