Lawyer: City to pay $1M in lawsuit over killer's victims

A lawyer representing families of six women slain by a serial killer in Cleveland says the City of Cleveland has agreed to pay $1 million to settle a lawsuit over the deaths.

Attorney Terry Gilbert said Monday the payout is part of a settlement in the lawsuit alleging a police detective failed to thoroughly investigate a woman's 2008 complaint that Anthony Sowell attacked and raped her.
