Death row inmate charged with killing woman found in 2007
MARION, Ohio (AP) — A death row inmate has been indicted on charges of killing a Louisiana woman more than a decade ago in Ohio.
Inmate Shawn Grate was previously convicted of four slayings in northern Ohio’s Ashland and Richland counties. Grate had told authorities another of his victims was a woman selling magazines.
Marion County Sheriff Tim Bailey at a news conference Tuesday identified the woman as Dana Nicole Lowrey, of Minden, Louisiana.
Her remains were found in 2007. She was 23 when she was killed, and was known to have sold magazines in Ohio.
A grand jury on Wednesday indicted Grate on charges of aggravated murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence, and abuse of a corpse.
A message seeking comment was left with Grate’s attorney.
