Police find four more bodies and a skull at the home of a rapist in US state of Ohio
A convicted rapist living in an Ohio home where several bodies have been found has been charged with five counts of aggravated murder, US police say, BBC reported.
Anthony Sowell, 50, was also charged with rape, assault and kidnapping, police spokesman Lt Thomas Stacho said.
Mr Sowell, a registered sex offender, is due in court on Wednesday.
Police said on Tuesday they had possibly found another four bodies and a skull at the house. The bodies of six women were found there last week.
Police Chief Michael McGrath said the latest bodies were found buried in the back garden of the house, in the city of Cleveland, and the skull was in a bucket in the basement.
Speaking at a press conference, he said detectives were searching the home and backyard for further evidence.
The BBC's North America correspondent Matthew Price says the nondescript wooden house on the suburban street in Ohio is slowly giving up its secrets.
Our correspondent says people living nearby held a vigil outside the house this week, in memory of those found so far.
Some clutched photographs of women who have gone missing from the area in recent years.
Mr Sowell - who spent 15 years in prison for a 1989 rape - was arrested on Saturday not far from his home.
