COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Federal officials will investigate Ohio State University's response to allegations against a team doctor now accused of sexual misconduct against scores of athletes and other male students in the 1980s and 1990s.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A state auditor's report on Ohio's Medicaid prescription drug business says there needs to be more transparency on what taxpayers are getting for their money. The Columbus Dispatch reports Ohio Auditor Dave Yost's report released Thursday calls for auditing on how Medicaid prescription drugs are administered, and an investigation into how manufacturers and wholesalers could be driving up costs. Yost says lawmakers' efforts this week to eliminate spread pricing may not be enough to curb costs.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Police say an Ohio woman didn't have her keys to the house where she and her grandfather lived and was knocking on his bedroom window to wake him up when he fatally shot her. Columbus police say 72-year-old Booker Moody didn't realize he was shooting at his granddaughter when he fired through the window and struck 19-year-old Jordan Williams. Court and jail records show Moody was arrested on a charge of murder. The online records don't show an attorney for him.
