ASHLAND COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - The trial of a man linked to the killings of at least four women in Ohio has been scheduled for next year. At Monday's pre-trial hearing a judge set the date of Shawn Grate's trial for Nov. 6, 2017.
Grate is charged in the deaths of two women whose bodies were found in a house that was thought to be vacant in Ashland.
The accused serial killer pleaded not guilty to the murders of two women, and the kidnapping and rape of another woman.
The bodies of Stacey Stanley and Elizabeth Griffith were found on September 13, when an unidentified victim was able to call for help and was rescued. They were inside a home on Covert Court in Ashland.
Grate has not yet been charged in those cases.
