Michael Madison, who was convicted of murdering three women in Ohio in 2012 and 2013, was sentenced to death on Thursday.

An Ohio jury earlier this month unanimously recommended the death penalty for Madison for the three murders. He kept the women's bodies wrapped in plastic bags as trophies.

On May 5, a jury of six men and six women found Madison, 38, guilty of three counts of aggravated murder in the killings of Shetisha Sheeley, 28; Angela Deskins, 38, and Shirellda Terry, 18.

He was also convicted on additional counts, including rape, kidnapping and gross abuse of a corpse, and was ruled a violent sexual predator.
