BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky grand jury will consider the case of a 73-year-old millionaire whose body officials believe was stuffed in a trash can and burned in Indiana.

Boone County District Judge Michael Collins ruled Monday that the case can go to a grand jury and set bond at $10 million each for 47-year-old housekeeper Willa Blanc and her 27-year-old son, Louis Wilkinson. They're charged with kidnapping, tampering with physical evidence, abuse of a corpse and knowing exploitation of an adult.

Officials say Walter Sartory spent his last days drugged and duct taped to a chair in Blanc's basement.

Authorities are still working to identify the remains found March 13 in a wooded area in Morgan County, Ind.
