Attorneys for sex offender Michael Madison, suspected of killing three Ohio women, want evidence against Michael Madison thrown out.


CLEVELAND -- Attorneys for a sex offender suspected of killing three Ohio women want evidence against the man thrown out. Michael Madison's attorneys say police should have had a search warrant when they looked through a garage where a body was found.

Madison is charged with killing the women and leaving their bodies in trash bags in a rundown East Cleveland neighborhood.

He has pleaded not guilty.

The bodies were found last July after police were called about an odor coming from a garage.

The Plain Dealer ( ) newspaper reports that Madison's attorneys also want a judge to dismiss other evidence including statements he made to police.

He is scheduled to go to trial July 21 and could face the death penalty if convicted.
