Louisiana woman's killing linked to death row inmate in Ohio
MARION, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say they've identified a woman whose killing was linked to a man now on death row for other homicides 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.
Lowrey was never reported missing. Bailey says DNA from a daughter confirmed Lowrey's identity.
Marion County Prosecutor Ray Grogan says he's preparing charges against the 42-year-old Grate.
A message seeking comment was left with Grate's attorney Tuesday.
