CLEVELAND, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- The trial for alleged Cleveland serial killer Anthony Sowell has been rescheduled for a fourth time and now is expected to begin June 6, officials said.

Sowell's lawyers said they needed additional time to examine thousands of records and hours of surveillance video footage taken from the property next door to Sowell's Imperial Avenue home where the remains of 11 women were discovered in 2009, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Thursday.

Sowell, 51, is charged with multiple counts of aggravated murder, kidnapping, abusing a human corpse and tampering with evidence.

He could face the death penalty if convicted in a trial lawyers estimate could take as long as two months.
