Terry leaped over the defendant’s table and tried to attack Madison, but was pulled away by sheriff’s deputies and attorneys. Taylor was removed from the courthouse and banned from attending the rest of the hearing.
After a brief delay, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Nancy McDonnell carried on with the hearing. She accepted the jury’s recommendation that Madison, 38, receive the death penalty. Madison killed three people and wrapped their bodies in garbage bags. The killings took place in 2012 and 2013. Madison admitted to strangling two of the victims, but claimed that he couldn’t remember the third victim.
