SANDUSKY, Ohio - A northern Ohio man has been convicted in the deaths of a woman and her two young children just over a year ago.
Jurors in Sandusky found 42-year-old Curtis Clinton guilty of aggravated murder and rape on Monday.
He could face a death sentence. The sentencing phase in the case will begin next week.
Clinton had pleaded not guilty in the slayings of 23-year-old Heather Jackson, her 3-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son at a Sandusky home. They were killed in September 2012.
Police officers said that they found the children's bodies behind boxes in a utility closet and that the woman's body was under a mattress.
