  • Eight hours in court may answer a lot of questions about Castro
    Ariel Castro is due in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court tomorrow for what’s expected to be an eight-hour sentencing hearing, even though he’s already agreed to terms that will keep him in prison for the rest of his life. Castro has pleaded guilty to 937 charges related to his abducting and imprisoning three women for a decade. None of the three – Angela Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight – is expected in court, but a statement from them is likely to be read. Castro is also expected to elaborate on claims he started to make last week that he was abused and is addicted to pornography.

    Alleged East Cleveland spree killer pleads not guilty
    Meanwhile, an East Cleveland man accused of killing three women in a period of a few weeks has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and other charges. Thirty-five-year-old  Michael Madison was arrested July 19, as police and volunteers began recovering the bodies the women, who were identified later as Shetisha Sheeley, Angela Deskins and Shirellda Terry. 

    Amounts in campaign coffers revealed today
    Campaign finance reports are due today for the state’s highest profile politicians, including Gov. John Kasich and his Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald. When he endorsed FitzGerald Monday, former Gov. Ted Strickland said he’ll be raising money for FitzGerald, but refused to suggest an amount the challenger should have on hand by now.

    Sports booster club indicted
    The Mansfield Tyger All Sports Booster Club and a couple in Richland County  have been indicted on charges accusing them of roles in stealing more than $200,000 from in scholarship money. The 20 charges against Kendall and Willliam Clemons of Lexington include engaging in a pattern of Corrupt Activity.   The money was to have helped local atheletes go to college.

    Attorney General DeWine says Clemons were trustees, and used the money from the scholarship trust to pay the mortgage on the booster club's bingo hall, attorneys and Kendall Clemons salary.

    Company getting state help to open a plant closes another
    A company that’s getting a 50 percent tax credit over eight years to build a a plant outside Columbus is closing its factory in the city. According to the Columbus Dispatch, TimberTech manufactures deck and fencing materials, and the closing will cost 58 people their jobs. If it creates 85 jobs in Wilmington, it gets the state tax credit.
