News Minute: Here is the latest Ohio news from The Associated Press at 8:40 a.m. EST
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man who admitted he plotted to kill military members in the U.S. after receiving training in Syria is again set to be sentenced after a short delay. Sentencing was originally scheduled for Friday morning but Judge Michael Watson rescheduled it for Monday morning. Government prosecutors want Watson to impose a 23-year sentence, while a defense attorney argues a lengthy prison term isn't necessary.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Attorneys for a condemned killer whose execution was stopped after 25 minutes of unsuccessful needle sticks are once again recommending the firing squad as an alternative. Lawyers for death row inmate Alva Campbell say a firing squad must be an option because the state couldn't find a usable vein on Campbell during November's unsuccessful procedure. The state says a judge has already rejected the firing squad as an option.
MARBLEHEAD, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in northern Ohio say three people were rescued after falling through the ice on western Lake Erie. The Blade in Toledo reports the trio was riding an all-terrain vehicle on the frozen lake near East Harbor State Park when the ice cracked and the vehicle sank on Sunday. Rescuers responded to a distress call and got them to safety.
CINCINNATI (AP) - Authorities say a Walmart in suburban Cincinnati was evacuated after someone set multiple fires inside the store, including a flaming pile of pants and other clothing. No one was hurt in the fires Saturday evening at the store in Colerain Township, in the city's western suburbs. A police spokesman tells WCPO-TV that an officer working around the store extinguished the fires.
