ASHLAND COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

The Ashland County Prosecutor's Office, special prosecutor and the attorney for accused serial killer Shawn Grate filed a joint gag order motion Wednesday in Grate's double murder and kidnapping case.

This is after accused serial killer Shawn Grate spoke with Cleveland 19 in the only jailhouse interview where he confessed to multiple murders despite pleading guilty in court.

Cleveland 19 is waiting for a response to a request for a copy of the gag order filing from the Ashland County Court of Common Pleas Clerk's Office.

A gag order would prohibit Shawn Grate, witnesses, and anyone involved in the case from speaking to the media, even after the trial has concluded unless later lifted by a judge.
