Crawford was found guilty this week of murdering 11 women and attempting to kill a 12th victim in a wave of slayings that terrorized a South Side neighborhood in the 1990s.
It took 10 hours of debate, but the jury convicted the 47-year-old Crawford on all counts late Thursday afternoon.
Crawford was arrested in 2000 and accused in the series of rapes and murders between 1993 and 1999. One victim was assaulted and left for dead on Thanksgiving night of 1997 but survived. Prosecutors alleged the victims were prostitutes and drug addicts who agreed to trade sex for narcotics but were instead attacked and then raped as they lay dying.
