An update on convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell.

The mass murderer had a hearing Thursday afternoon on two additional rape and felony assault charges, for two women who survived attacks in his home. Both victims testified in Sowell's murder trial.

Court records show talks are underway for Sowell to plead guilty.

Records also show its possible he will face new charges .

For the first time Prosecutors say specifically he could be indicted for a Cleveland Heights rape.

A Defense Attorney would only say there is a trial set for Monday.

51-year-old Sowell was sentenced to death for the murder of eleven women between June 2007 and September 2009. The victims' remains were found inside and outside of Sowell's Imperial Avenue home in Cleveland.
