SANDUSKY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A jury has recommended a judge sentence a man who raped and killed a young Sandusky mother before killing her two children to death.

The same jury that convicted Curtis Clinton of rape and murder last week told a judge they think he deserves to be put to death for his crimes on Tuesday.

Clinton was convicted of raping and strangling to death 23-year-old Heather Jackson, then raping and killing her 3-year-old daughter Celina and killing her 18-month-old son Wayne.

Clinton denied committing the crimes at the sentencing hearing on Tuesday.

The judge will make a final ruling on Clinton's sentence Thursday.
