Michael Swift

The gruesomeness of a murder in Ottawa is starting to reveal itself.

A La Salle County Grand Jury Tuesday indicted 29-year-old Michael Swift of Mokena on three counts of first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing to death his ex-girlfriend, 21-year-old Grace Taylor. The grand jury added on two new charges against Swift, abuse of a corpse. He remains jailed on three million dollars bond.

Prosecutors believe Swift stabbed Taylor multiple times in her south side Ottawa apartment. She was found dead the morning of April 19th.

Swift meanwhile is next due in court Thursday morning with a first appearance along side a lawyer.
