More charges likely in case of abduction, bodies found

ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) — A decision on additional charges in the case of an Ohio man arrested at a house where two bodies were found will come on Thursday.

Authorities are working to identify one of those bodies as well as a third body found at a house in neighboring Richland County.

A woman’s report that she was being held captive at a home in Ashland led to the arrest of Shawn Grate, a murder confession and the discovery of the remains of the three other people.

Grate remains jailed on an abduction charge. It was not immediately clear if the 40-year-old, who is homeless, has an attorney.
