Cleveland: A rapist who lived at a Cleveland house where 10 bodies were found has been ordered held without bond.

Anthony Sowell appeared Wednesday before Municipal Court Judge Ronald Adrine (AY'-dreen) on five counts of aggravated murder.

The 50-year-old Sowell looked straight at the judge as a prosecutor asked that he be held without bond and described him as an "incredibly dangerous threat to the public."

Sowell has been in jail since last week after police recovered the bodies of six women from his home.

Authorities dug up four more bodies Tuesday and found a skull in his basement. Police plan to resume a search of the house Wednesday and expand their search of vacant homes in the neighborhood.
