Accused Ashland County killer due in court

ASHLAND COUNTY, Ohio -- A man accused of two murders and holding a third victim hostage will appear in court Monday for arraignment.

40-year-old Shawn Grate was arrested last week after a woman he was allegedly holding hostage in Ashland County was able to get his cell phone and call 911.

When investigators arrived, two bodies were located.

Authorities say Grate led them to the site of a third body in Richland County.

He faces charges of murder and kidnapping.

Grate is being held on $1 million bond.
