The house of horrors where convicted killer Shawn Grate murdered two women has been demolished

ASHLAND, Ohio - The Covert Court house, where convicted killer Shawn Grate murdered two women and held another woman captive, was torn down on Tuesday.

Simonson Construction demolished the house at no cost to help the community with its healing.

In June, Shawn Grate was sentenced to death for killing Stacey Stanley Hicks and Liz Griffith. 

Several Ashland residents, along with people who knew the victims, watched the tear down and took pictures.

Ashland's mayor said he's working with the family members to create a memorial for the victims that may include a tree, a marker and a bench.
