State of Ohio v. Anthony Kirkland, Case No. 2018-1265
Hamilton County Common Pleas Court
Anthony Kirkland was convicted in 2010 for the murders of two women and two teen girls in Cincinnati. In 2016, following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling, the Ohio Supreme Court sent Kirkland's case back to the Hamilton County trial court to conduct the mitigation and sentencing phases of his trial again.
A new jury recommended death, and the trial court imposed that sentence in August 2018. Because Kirkland was sentenced to death, he is entitled to an automatic appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court.
