  • UH and MetroHealth go head to head in Broadview Hts
  • Boy who killed father to be tried as juvenile
  • Former CFO crumbles under cross examination in Suarez trial 
    The case against a North Canton businessman accused of illegally reimbursing employees for campaign contributions came under attack in cross-examination of the prosecution’s key witness.

    Defense lawyers for Ben Suarez, owner of Suarez Industries challenged former CFO Michael Giorgio’s knowledge of alleged wrong-doing.

    Giorgio earlier this week testified that Suarez ordered him to re-pay the employees with bonuses hidden in expense accounts.

    Under cross examination yesterday, Giorgio testified that he did that on his own.

    In a separate civil suit Suarez is accusing his former employee Giorgio of embezzling more than $400,000 from the company. 


    UH and MetroHealth go head to head in Broadview Hts
    Two Cleveland area hospital systems are planning new facilities for the same neighborhood in Broadview heights.

    Crain’s Cleveland Business reports that University Hospitals announced plans this week to build a new $28 million health center at the intersection of state Route 82 and Interstate 77.

    The site is not far from where MetroHealth is planning a nearly identical facility in the area straddling Brecksville and Broadview Heights.

    University Hospitals plans to break ground on its project later this year. 


    Boy who killed father to be tried as juvenile
    A judge has ruled that a 15-year-old southern Ohio boy accused of fatally shooting his father won't be tried as an adult.

    The judge in Portsmouth, Ohio made the ruling Thursday after a court-appointed psychologist said he believes the teen can be treated and rehabilitated in the juvenile justice system.

    The Columbus Dispatch reports that the boy was 14 when he killed his 48-year-old father on March 16.

    The psychologist wrote that the teen was in "a markedly dysfunctional family."

    The report says teen has no prior history of violent or delinquent behavior.
