TROY, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man and woman accused in the death of the woman’s grandfather whose body was found in a sleeping bag in a Kentucky creek have been indicted in Ohio.

The Miami County prosecutor’s office says 35-year-old Richard Terrel of Troy was indicted Monday on charges of murder, felonious assault, gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence in 88-year-old William York Sr.’s death. The prosecutor’s office says 24-year-old Hope Earnshaw-York was indicted on charges of gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence in her grandfather’s death.

Both are in jail in Troy. It could not be determined immediately whether they have attorneys.

Police say York died of blunt force head injury.

York’s remains were found June 3 in a creek in Union, Kentucky.
