A jury has ruled that convicted serial killer Andre Crawford is eligible for the death penalty.

Crawford, 47, was convicted Thursday of killing 11 women on Chicago's South Side in the 1990's.

Crawford confessed on videotape, which the jury watched during the trial.

Many of his victims were prostitutes he lured by offering them drugs in exchange for sex.

Jurors must now decide Crawford's sentence.
