  • Couple gets restraining order in gay marriage lawsuit against the state
    A federal judge has extended a temporary restraining order preventing Ohio authorities from enforcing the state's ban on gay marriage against a couple as one of them nears death. The order, set to expire in less than a week, prevents state and local authorities from enforcing the state's gay marriage ban against John Arthur and James Obergefell of Cincinnati until Dec. 31. Arthur is dying of Lou Gehrig's disease. The couple, who married in Maryland last month, sued Ohio to have their marriage recognized in their home state before Arthur's death so they can be listed as spouses on his death certificate and be buried next to each other.

    Teen accomplice in sledgehammer killings could be tried as adult
    A 14-year-old boy suspected as an accomplice in the killings of a prominent Akron-area couple could be charged as an adult. A juvenile court judge said Tuesday there's enough evidence for Jamal Vaughn’s  case eventually to be moved to adult court. By law, a judge must first have a hearing on whether the boy could be rehabilitated in the juvenile justice system if convicted. The teen and 18-year-old Shawn Ford, Jr. were arrested for the April sledgehammer killings of attorney Jeffrey Schobert and his wife, Peg. Ford, who was their daughter’s boyfriend, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

    Seven oncologists charged for shipping unauthorized medications
    Seven Cleveland-area oncologists have been charged with importing medications to treat cancer that are unauthorized by the Food and Drug Administration. Federal officials in Cleveland say the doctors face misdemeanor charges in the shipment of misbranded drugs. Drugs may be considered misbranded even if they are identical in composition to FDA-approved drugs, and even if they were made by the same manufacturer in the same facility the approved versions.

    Ohio man gets prison for casino cheating
    A suburban Columbus man will spend two years in prison after pleading guilty to cheating at the Hollywood Casino Columbus. Forty-year-old Arthur Murray of Reynoldsburg was among the first casino customers to be charged with casino-gaming offenses. Murray was playing blackjack and was captured on surveillance video as he added or removed chips from his bets after the cards were dealt. His sentence also includes unrelated weapons and robbery charges.

    Medicaid projections show state could save money while expanding program
    A key Ohio lawmaker says projections showing the state could save money by expanding Medicaid are just one piece of a fact-finding process. State Sen. Dave Burke, who chairs a Medicaid subcommittee, says the analysis from the Health Policy Institute of Ohio shows that curbing Medicaid's growth to a certain rate is feasible. But the Republican chairman says lawmakers must craft the right policy to achieve it. State lawmakers have been trying to find common ground on Medicaid since Republican Gov. John Kasich proposed an expansion in February. GOP leaders pulled it from the state budget, and the issue has yet to gain traction in the Legislature. Burke's Senate subcommittee will travel to Cleveland next week to see how a mini-Medicaid expansion project works.

    Tallmadge mother and son’s remains sent to anthropologist
    Authorities say decomposed remains found in a wooded area behind a Summit County home are being sent to an anthropologist at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa. to find answers about how they died. Thirty-one-year-old Wendy Ralston and her five-year-old son, Peyton had been missing since August 7th. The deaths are being investigated as homicides. Ralston's mother contacted police Saturday after she visited the home and discovered the remains behind it. Police have talked to Ralston's boyfriend, who is the boy's father and is considered a "person of interest" in the case because he lives at the home in Tallmadge.
