CLEVELAND (AP) - Prosecutors in northeast Ohio are arguing to remain on the case of a man accused of killing three women.

Attorneys for convicted sex offender Michael Madison want the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County prosecutor’s office off the case. The defense wants special prosecutors to handle the potential death penalty case.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/1t8WseE ) reports that in a new court filing, prosecutors say they should remain on the case. They dismiss the attempt as a legal ploy meant to criticize their office and prolong the case.

The 37-year-old Madison is accused of killing three women and leaving their bodies in trash bags in a rundown East Cleveland neighborhood where they were found last year. He pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and other charges.
