  • Emilliano Terry found dead; mother in custody
    Police in Cleveland are awaiting results of an autopsy on a 3-year-old boy whose 20-year-old mother is being held as a suspect in his slaying. Police said Camilia Terry was arrested Monday after the body of her son, Emilliano Terry, was found in trash bags at a waste processing site. She initially had reported the child missing from a city park Sunday. Investigators said Camilia Terry's story changed during questioning, leading them to suspect that she was involved. FBI agents stopped a garbage truck while searching the neighborhood. 

    One man convicted in Route 82 Bridge plot appeals sentence
    One of the four men who pleaded guilty in a failed plot to bomb a highway bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park has appealed his nearly 10-year sentence. The attorney for 21-year-old Brandon Baxter of Lakewood filed the appeal Monday. The other two defendants sentenced last week in Akron also plan to appeal. Their attorneys say the men deserve leniency because they were entrapped by an FBI informant who provided a dud bomb device. A fourth defendant is considering withdrawing his guilty plea if he doesn't get the lenient sentence offered in return for his cooperation. A fifth defendant is undergoing a psychiatric exam.

    Two men shot while riding RTA bus
    Two men riding on a Cleveland public transit bus were injured when the bus was caught in the middle of gunfire Monday night. Greater Cleveland RTA officials say the shots were fired outside the bus, at a stop on East 105th street.  Cleveland police are investigating the shooting, which occurred after 10 p.m.

    Former Croatian Credit Union COO sentenced
    The head of a collapsed Cleveland credit union has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for fraud and other charges and must repay more than $72 million. 53-year-old Anthony Raguz of Mentor was sentenced Monday. Prosecutors say as chief operating officer of the St. Paul Croatian Federal Credit Union in Eastlake, he issued 1,000 fraudulent loans to customers and accepted bribes and kickbacks.  

    Correction: New report says Obamacare will cost Ohio over $3 billion
    A new national report says expanding Medicaid eligibility in Ohio under the Affordable Care Act would reduce the number of uninsured residents by half. It would also cost the state an additional $3.1 billion in the next decade. The Dayton Daily News the numbers come from a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation, a Washington-based nonpartisan health care policy research organization. The report says that if the state changes Medicaid eligibility to 138 percent of the poverty line or below, about 457,000 uninsured Ohioans would gain health care coverage by 2022. About 2.2 million Ohioans currently participate in the taxpayer-funded health insurance program. State officials are still trying to figure out how it would pay its share of the increase.

    Fair Finance swindler will ask for light sentence
    The attorney for an Indianapolis financier convicted of swindling about $200 million from former Akron-based Fair Finance investors said he'll ask a judge to sentence his client to only five years in prison, but a probation report recommends a maximum sentence of 225 years. Timothy Durham is due to be sentenced Friday on his June convictions for securities fraud, conspiracy and other counts.  Durham’s attorney said he believes a five-year sentence is well supported by the law.

    Cleveland councilman pleads not guilty to driving under the influence
    A Cleveland city councilman has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence and speeding. Councilman Eugene Miller entered the plea in Cleveland Municipal Court on Monday. He was arrested Sunday in the area of Ohio 2 along the city's lakefront. WEWS reports that it learned from court officials that the councilman's blood alcohol content was under the limit for drunken driving.

    Judge rejects overweight Death Row inmate’s request for delay
    A judge has rejected the request of a condemned Ohio killer to delay his execution because of his extreme weight. Death row inmate Ronald Post, who weighs more than 400 pounds, is asking the courts to stop his January execution on the grounds his weight could cause him to suffer severe pain during the procedure. Cleveland federal judge Lesley Wells said Monday that Post is prohibited from challenging his execution by injection because he raised similar claims in his first set of federal appeals in 1997.
