Grate was indicted in Ashland in September on 23, 2016 with the counts including aggravated murder, rape, abuse of a corpse and burglary. The charges came 10 days after he was arrested when police were guided to a house on Covert Court where he was staying.

Upon arrival, authorities found two dead female bodies.

“These are some of the most horrific crimes I’ve seen in my 15 years as a criminal prosecutor,” Tunnell said after the indictment was released. “Given these depraved actions and the gruesome evidence, I will be strongly recommending the death penalty if a jury finds this defendant guilty.”

Grate, 40, also faced four counts of kidnapping, two counts of gross abuse of a corpse, four counts of rape, four counts of burglary, and one count each of tampering with evidence, aggravate robbery, unauthorized use of a vehicle, robbery and breaking and entering.

According to the indictment, there are two counts of aggravated murder for each identified victim, one for the murder and one because the murder was committed during a kidnapping.

At one point Shawn admits to killing a woman, putting her in the closet and throwing clothes over her in the house he was squatting in. "I've just been killing a lot of flies, opening the window, and let the flies out. It stinks, the smell is soaking into everything else though, clothes and things I guess".
