By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)- Court documents are showing new details about the murder of 37-year-old Meghan Acord.

The man police suspect of killing the Ashland mother, Valenti Ware, is now back in Lexington.

He was extradited back to Kentucky after being arrested in Des Moines, Iowa back in mid-October.

She was found dead on October 1st near railroad tracks under the Loudon Avenue overpass near Eastland Drive.

The court documents show Acord was known to sleep under the bridge when she could not reserve a bed at the Catholic Action Center.

Investigators say Acord, Ware, and another man were seen on surveillance footage two days before the murder leaving the center.

The arrest citation says a witness saw Ware hit Acord multiple times in the head with a railroad tie, killing her.

That witness also told police Ware then boarded a LexTran Bus, got off somewhere on New Circle Road near Palumbo Drive, and then burned the clothing he was wearing.

During the investigation, officers were able to locate that evidence.

Ware is currently behind bars at the Fayette County Detention Center charged with murder and tampering with evidence.

He will be in court on Friday.
