In a 4-3 opinion released earlier this week, the Supreme Court of Ohio affirmed a death sentence for a man found guilty of killing and burning four Hamilton County women between 2006 and 2009.

The defendant, Anthony Kirkland, was arrested in March 2009 in connection with a missing 13-year-old girl.

Kirkland initially denied any involvement in the girl’s disappearance, but later admitted to killing her and three other women.

His first victim, 14-year-old Casonya, was walking to her grandmother’s house after midnight in May 2006.
