Gag order requested in accused serial killer Shawn Grate case

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.

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.
