  • Mother of missing toddler charged
    The mother of a 3-year-old whose body was found in trash bags at a waste processing site has been charged with aggravated murder.

    Camilia Terry was arrested Monday. She had reported her son Emilliano missing from a park on Sunday.  She is due in court on Thursday morning.

    Investigators said the mother's story changed, leading them to suspect that she was involved. FBI agents stopped a garbage truck while searching the neighborhood and went to the trash processing location.

    Police have tentatively identified the body, but the medical examiner says DNA tests will be required for a positive ID.

    Hearbeat bill could be revived 
    The chief promoter of an Ohio bill that would have imposed the tightest abortion restriction in the nation says she'll use a legislative maneuver to try to force a vote before year's end over the Senate president's opposition.

    In a statement today, Faith2Action President Janet Folger Porter said Republican Senate President Tom Niehaus broke a promise Tuesday with his decision not to schedule a vote on the so-called "heartbeat bill."

    Niehaus is in his final weeks at the Statehouse due to term limits. He cited lingering constitutional concerns in his decision, which effectively killed the bill.

    The legislation bans most abortions at the first detectable fetal heartbeat, as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

    Porter says 17 Republican signatures on a discharge petition can force a vote.

    Fracking foes get public forum instead of hearing
    Anti-fracking activists in Southern Ohio are getting a hearing by state regulators, but not the kind they requested.

    The state is holding an open-house style forum instead of the formal public hearing that southeastern Ohio gas-drilling opponents had wanted.

    The Athens County Fracking Action Network, said the open house doesn't give residents an opportunity to have their comments placed on the record before the state grants a disposal-well permit.

    But a state spokeswoman said the venue will provide people with greater access to officials.

    Lawyer suspended for tipping-off Tressel
    A Columbus lawyer who tipped-off then Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel that his players had traded team memorabilia for tattoos has had his law license suspended.

    The Ohio Supreme Court ruled today that Christopher Cicero violated the confidentiality of a potential client by emailing the information to Tressel.  Cicero received a one year suspension of his license for disclosing information he had received from the owner of a tattoo parlor.

    The scandal led to Tressel’s resignation in May of 2011.

    Ohio Supreme Court sets 2015 execution date 
    The Ohio Supreme Court has set an execution date more than two years away for a condemned killer who shot a man trying to help the killer's wife kick her drug addiction.

    Warren Henness was sentenced to die for killing Richard Myers in Columbus in 1992.  

    Court records say that Henness knew Myers because of Myers' attempt to help Henness' wife seek drug counseling and treatment.

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday set a Jan. 2015, execution date for Henness. It's the farthest into the future the court has scheduled an execution.   Four executions are scheduled for 2014, and six next year.
