Photos: Victim’s father leaps to attack Serial killer After Laughing At His Death Sentence


The father of a teenage woman murdered by a convicted sex offender leaped over a table and tried to attack the smirking serial killer in court after he was sentenced to death on Thursday.

Michael Madison was given the death penalty for murdering 18-year-old Shirelda Terry, Angela Deskins, 38, and Shetisha Sheele, 28, in Ohio in July 2013.

According to Mailonline,Miss Terry’s father, Van Terry, was speaking about the loss of his daughter after Madison was sentenced to death when he suddenly ran and lunged at the murderer.

Madison, 38, was seen laughing as Cuyahoga County courtroom deputies wrestled the upset father away.

The scuffle happened just minutes after Madison was sentenced to death for the 2013 killings.

The bodies of Ms Deskins, Ms Sheeley and teenager Miss Terry were found wrapped in garbage bags near the East Cleveland apartment building where Madison lived in July 2013.

A cable television worker reported a putrid smell coming from a garage shared by Madison at the apartment building.

Inside, police found the decaying body of a woman wrapped in garbage bags that were sealed closed with tape.The next day, searchers found bodies in the basement of a vacant house and in the backyard of a home nearby.

Madison told police he strangled two of the women but could not remember killing the third.

Madison was also convicted last month of multiple counts of aggravated murder and kidnapping.

Any execution is likely years away because of lengthy appeals. Ohio also lacks supplies of lethal drugs.

Madison’s attorneys never contested his guilt at trial. They instead focused on saving his life by presenting evidence that Madison suffered lasting psychological damage from physical abuse as a youngster..

There was testimony that Madison was abused by his drug-addicted mother, a stepfather, some of his mother’s boyfriends and family members
