Plane crash in Willoughby Hills kills four
Other morning headlines: Search for missing Eastlake woman enters sixth day; Judge rules HIV-positive priest accused of soliciting sex will face felony charge

The latest WKSU morning news headlines:

Plane crash in Willoughby Hills kills four
A plane crashed shortly after takeoff from the Cuyahoga County Airport, killing four people. The plane crashed around 10 p.m. last night in Willoughby Hills, near the Lake County-Cuyahoga County border. Few details are available, including the names of those on board. Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating. In 2009, two people were killed when a single-engine plane taking off from Cuyahoga County Airport crashed in Mayfield Village. 

Stark County couple agrees to settle federal bias complaint
A couple that owns three Stark County apartment complexes has agreed to pay $850,000 to settle a federal bias complaint in which they were accused of limiting the number of blacks and families with children they'd rent to. Seventeen people will receive a portion of the settlement from John and Mary Ruth, who owned apartment complexes in Massillon through their company Penson Properties. Employees also said they were told to induce people to move or to manufacture reasons to evict them. The Ruths no longer own the apartments. 

Judge rules HIV-positive priest accused of sex solicitation will face felony charge 
A judge has ruled that an HIV-positive priest who police say solicited sex from a park ranger last year will face a felony charge should he go to trial. The attorney for 69-year-old Rev. James McGonegal asked the judge to reconsider a 1996 Ohio law that makes it a third-degree felony for someone with HIV to solicit sex. The attorney argued McGonegal's HIV status should be ignored because of medical advancements and he should face a third-degree misdemeanor charge.

250 Cuyahoga kindergartners registered for college savings plan
An official in Cuyahoga  County says about 250 parents of kindergartners have registered for a college savings account program that started with the county contributing $100 for each child. The fund idea was started earlier this year by count executive and candidate for governor Ed FitzGerald. Ken Surratt, a special assistant to FitzGerald, tells the Plain Dealer that 27 of the savings account have received money on top of the $100 in taxpayers' money used to start each of them. Voters approved a county charter in 2009 that called for establishing a countywide education fund. FitzGerald says too few lower- and middle-class families are saving for college, and the program aims to create a local culture that encourages more saving. 

Search for missing Eastlake woman enters sixth day
The search for a missing Eastlake woman will enter its sixth day today. Several dozen agencies in Summit and Cuyahoga counties have been searching the Cuyahoga Valley National Park for 30-year-old Hillary Sharma, who was last seen last Tuesday. Her car was found Friday in the park. The search Monday centered along the Cuyahoga River on the Summit-Cuyahoga county line. Some of her personal items have been found near Boston Township. The Plain Dealer reports a boater who was part of the search found additional items linked to Sharma in the same general area.

Man steals police cruiser, hits officer
Akron police had to use a Taser to subdue a man who stole a police cruiser with a woman in the back seat. Police say 19-year-old Shawn Douglas, Jr. jumped in the cruiser late Saturday when an officer walked away to retrieve a woman’s cell phone. The woman was detained for not having a license. Douglas drove away, knocking the officer to the ground. He faces several charges.
