(Toledo, OH) A judge is set to decide this week whether to set a convicted serial killer go free.
A Thursday hearing will determine what restrictions 59-year old Nathaniel Cook will face after serving a 20-year prison sentence for a plea deal reached to solve a number of outstanding homicides in Toledo. In a videotaped confession, Cook admitted to killing three people with his older brother Anthony, who's now serving a life sentence.
Prosecutors and victim's families at the time agreed to the plea deal to gain closure for a scary series of rapes and murders in the 1980's, but now want to keep Cook in prison.
The judge will issue a decision on whether to release Cook from behind bars, as well as a sex offender classification and registration requirements. Cook's attorneys filed a motion for release back in February.
