A murder on the south side of Ottawa is being blamed on a man from Mokena.
Twenty-nine-year-old Michael Swift was in a La Salle County courtroom Tuesday and charged with three counts of murder. He's accused of stabbing to death his ex-girlfriend Grace Taylor in an apartment along West McKinley Road.
Bond for Swift has been set at $3 million. He's been appointed a public defender and is due back in court for arraignment May 6th.
