From staff reports
A Saegertown man was charged with homicide Monday in connection with the discovery of a woman’s body last month in Crawford County.
Meadville state police said Ragene Gilbert, 25, was found to be a suspect after extensive investigations into the death of Destine Conyers, 21, of Townville.
Conyers’ death was ruled a homicide following an Oct. 1 autopsy that reported she died from gunshots to her head and torso causing blunt force trauma, police said.
He was arraigned Monday and confined to the Crawford County jail after bail was denied. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Nov. 8.
Police said they cooperated with federal, state, and local law enforcement, and many interviews were conducted throughout Crawford, Erie, Mercer, and Beaver counties during the investigation.
