A man faces charges after the remains of a missing woman were found at his home, authorities said.
Last week, the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office in Texas announced that Valerian Osteen, 24, was charged with capital murder in connection to the death of Marissa Grimes.
Her remains were found at his home earlier this week and positively identified.
Osteen was arrested on Jan. 10 on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful restraint. He was released the next day after posting $15,000 bond. The victim in those cases was Grimes.
Osteen was ordered to stay away and not have contact with Grimes, according to the Tarrant County District’s Attorney’s Office.
When granted bond, Osteen already had five previous felony convictions, the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office.
Osteen’s GPS monitor lost power on Feb. 23 after he didn’t charge it properly, according to prosecutors. He was arrested and now he is being held without bond.
Last week, police found Grimes dead underneath Grimes’ house, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. She was last seen by her family on Feb. 12.
Investigators have not said how she died or what led them to believe Osteen is the suspect.
