Thanks for visiting Popular Crime. The story below is a summary we’re sharing from another news source, who did original reporting on the case. 

KETTERING, Ohio (AP) — A man accused of fatally stabbing an Ohio woman, hiding her in a closet and a refrigerator and continuing to live in her apartment for days before the body was found in a nearby dumpster, has been arraigned on charges including murder.

Terrel Ross, 37, of Dayton, also was arraigned Wednesday in Kettering Municipal Court on charges of felonious assault, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse in the slaying of Sierra Woodfork, 24, of Kettering. Court records didn’t show an attorney for Ross, who did not enter any pleas during the video arraignment.

Woodfork’s body was found Saturday in a trash bin near where she lived, but her body had been hidden in a closet and a refrigerator before she was put in the dumpster, police said in court records.

Police said they found blood throughout her apartment and a knife and other items in the trash at the apartment.

Bond for Ross was continued at $1 million. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing next Wednesday.
