SANDUSKY – Erie County Common Pleas Judge Tygh Tone today accepted a jury's recommendation and imposed the death penalty on Curtis Clinton for a triple homicide in 2012.

Clinton, 42, was found guilty last week by a jury of aggravated murder in the strangulation deaths of Heather Jackson, 23, and her children, Celina Jackson, 3, and 20-month-old Wayne Jackson, Jr.

The same panel also reached a unanimous decision on Tuesday that Clinton of Sandusky should be given a lethal injection for the crimes, which included the rape of Celina.

The woman and her children were found strangled on Sept. 8, 2012 in their John Street home in Sandusky.

Clinton was convicted in 1999 in Wood County Common Pleas Court in the strangulation death of Misty Keckler, 18.
