Six bodies have been found at the home of a convicted rapist in Cleveland, Ohio.

Police discovered the first two bodies when they came to arrest Anthony Sowell, 50, on a rape charge, the BBC reports.

A third body was found a day later and police have now confirmed three more.

The remains were recovered in the house and in its backyard.

Anthony Sowell - who spent 15 years in prison for a 1989 rape - was arrested on Saturday not far from his home.
