Girl charged with murder in connection to fatal officer-involved shooting of 16-year-old

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 16:36

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A 16-year-old girl has been charged with murder in connection to the death of 16-year-old Julius Tate Jr., who was shot and killed by a Columbus police officer.

Masonique Saunders was arrested on Dec. 13 on charges of robbery and murder because police said she played a role in the commission of the felony robbery that resulted in the death of Tate.

Police said Julius Tate had committed at least two previous armed robberies and, on the night he was killed, held up an undercover officer.

Police said they responded to an ad on a social media sale site to exchange an item for cash Dec. 7.

Police did not know the identity of the person posting the sale ad, so undercover SWAT officers responded to the ad and set up a meeting.

Police said 16-year-old Julius Tate Jr. arrived at the meeting place Friday evening and pointed a gun at a SWAT officer in plain clothes. The teen was shot and killed by another officer.

Police said they recovered a weapon at the shooting scene.

Tate’s family said they plan to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

OSU study: Roundabouts could be key to stopping distracted driving

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 16:17

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A study by the Risk Institute at The Ohio State University has found roundabouts prevent distracted driving.

The university research group studied driver response and behaviors and found no fatalities within Ohio roundabouts.

“Focusing on roundabouts, we saw no fatalities at all within roundabouts as contrasted to a more conventional cross intersection,” said Executive Director of Risk Institute Phil Renaud. “There’s plenty of signage that requires people to yield and pay attention as they approach the roundabout.”

Researchers have determined that driving crashes are five-to-10 times more likely to be fatal than severe in a rear-end or lane-change head-on crash.

Researchers also determined distracted driving caused 18 percent of overall Ohio crash fatalities and 16 percent of serious injuries in Ohio.

“We’ve got to do something to get ahead of this,” Renaud said. “Our phones are becoming fixtures, things that we incorporate and use... Our phones are becoming just a way of life.”

Phase two of the study is slated to begin in 2019, which will focus on distracted drivers outside the state of Ohio.

Trump says Mexico will pay for wall; Mexican president says he didn't talk wall funding

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 15:30

After a phone conversation with the Mexican president Wednesday, President Trump asserted the next day that Mexico would pay for a border wall, a promise he often made on the campaign trail. The Mexican president, however, denied that the two discussed wall funding during their call, which was about immigration.

"I often stated, 'One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.' This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!" Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday morning, suggesting that the money saved by the newly negotiated U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement would be tantamount to Mexico paying for a border wall between the two countries.

Trump and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador discussed illegal migration from Central America to the United States, as waves of immigrants seeking asylum approach the southern border. Lopez Obrador said Thursday morning that the topic of funding for a border wall was not discussed "in any conversation."

"It was a respectful and friendly conversation," Lopez Obrador said, according to Reuters. Mexico has previously bristled at the idea that it would be responsible for the funding of a border wall, which has been a point of contention between the two countries.

Trump's preoccupation with the wall has been evident during a domestic fight with Congress over wall funding in government appropriations measures that face a deadline in the next two weeks. Trump is requesting $5 billion for the wall, but Democrats will only commit to $1.6 billion. At a combative Oval Office meeting with Democratic congressional leaders on Wednesday, Trump said that he would bear responsibility for shutting down the government if he does not get sufficient funding for the wall.

"I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck," the president said, speaking to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. "So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I'm not gonna blame you for it. The last time you shut it down it didn't work. I will take the mantle of shutting down. And I'm gonna shut it down for border security."

The funding for agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department and the State Department runs out on Dec. 21, days before Christmas.

"The president has the White House, he has the Senate, he has the House of Representatives, all in Republican control," House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said after the meeting on Wednesday. "He has the power to keep government open. Instead, he has admitted in this meeting that he will take responsibility, the Trump shutdown is something that can be avoided."

Ohio House passes portion of Reagan Tokes Act

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 14:14

The Ohio House has passed a portion of the Reagan Tokes Act Thursday following its passage through the House committee the day before.

#BREAKING - an amended version of SB 201 - a portion of the #ReaganTokes act has just passed the Ohio House. @10TV #10TV

— Bennett Haeberle (@bhaeberle) December 13, 2018

Senate Bill 201 would drastically change how violent felons are sentenced in Ohio.

It passed out of the House criminal justice committee by a 10 to 0 vote Wednesday in an amended version.

The bill would allow judges to sentence criminals convicted of violent crimes or level 1 or 2 felonies to a range of years in prison rather than a determined sentence.

The legislation is named after Reagan Tokes, the Ohio State student who was kidnapped, raped and murdered in 2017 by a convicted sex offender , Brian Golsby, who had been released from prison months before her death.

Despite wearing a GPS ankle monitor during Tokes murder and other crimes, records reviewed by 10 Investigates show that Golsby and other offenders are not always closely monitored by the state’s parole system.

Prior to his release from prison in the fall of 2016, Golsby misbehaved while behind bars, garnering dozens of sanctions. But current Ohio law would not allow prison officials to keep Golsby behind bars. Golsby was convicted of Tokes’ death in April and is currently serving out a life sentence.

Some of the amendments to SB 201 that passed favorably by the criminal justice committee Wednesday included:

- Removing 3rd degree felonies from the list of criminals who could receive indeterminate sentences.

- And instead of require the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction to create a statewide GPS program and database, the new language in SB 201 calls for DRC to create a feasibility study to return to lawmaker by June 30, 2019.

- Another amendment also makes recommendations that DRC work to reduce the number of offenders who are released from prison homeless – as Golsby was – but does not require it.

The bill now moves back to the Senate for a final vote before heading to Gov. John Kasich's desk.

Authorities: Bomb threats emailed across US appear to be hoax

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 13:31

NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say bomb threats sent to dozens of schools, universities and other locations across the U.S. appear to be a hoax.

The New York City Police Department said the threats sent Thursday were meant to cause disruption and compel recipients into sending money and are not considered credible.

Some of the emails had the subject line: "Think Twice."

The Palm Beach County, Florida sheriff's office and the Boise, Idaho police said they had no reason to believe that threats made to locations in those areas were credible.

Across the country, some schools were closed early and others were evacuated because of the threats. Penn State University noticed students via a campus alert. Near Atlanta, people were ushered out of a courthouse.

In central Ohio, Reynoldsburg police confirmed the school district received an email asking for Bitcoin and said there was an explosive device in their place of business.

Capital University evacuated one building after receiving a threat Thursday. No other details about the threat were released.

EMAIL BOMB THREATS:
CPD's Homeland Security Section has been informed of a nationwide email threat being distributed.
The originator threatens to blow up buildings if Bit Coins aren't paid out. This is a generic email being sent out.
Call us with any threat: CPD: 911/614-645-4545 pic.twitter.com/axzB1G3zUt

Spammed Bomb Threat Hoax Demands Bitcoin

Krebs on Security - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 13:24

A new email extortion scam is making the rounds, threatening that someone has planted bombs within the recipient’s building that will be detonated unless a hefty bitcoin ransom is paid by the end of the business day.

Sources at multiple U.S. based financial institutions reported receiving the threats, which included the subject line, “I advise you not to call the police.”

The email reads:

My man carried a bomb (Hexogen) into the building where your company is located. It is constructed under my direction. It can be hidden anywhere because of its small size, it is not able to damage the supporting building structure, but in the case of its detonation you will get many victims.

My mercenary keeps the building under the control. If he notices any unusual behavior or emergency he will blow up the bomb.

I can withdraw my mercenary if you pay. You pay me 20.000 $ in Bitcoin and the bomb will not explode, but don’t try to cheat -I warrant you that I will withdraw my mercenary only after 3 confirmations in blockchain network.

Here is my Bitcoin address : 1GHKDgQX7hqTM7mMmiiUvgihGMHtvNJqTv

You have to solve problems with the transfer by the end of the workday. If you are late with the money explosive will explode.

This is just a business, if you don’t send me the money and the explosive device detonates, other commercial enterprises will transfer me more money, because this isnt a one-time action.

I wont visit this email. I check my Bitcoin wallet every 35 min and after seeing the money I will order my recruited person to get away.

If the explosive device explodes and the authorities notice this letter:
We are not terrorists and dont assume any responsibility for explosions in other buildings.

The bitcoin address included in the email was different in each message forwarded to KrebsOnSecurity. In that respect, this scam is reminiscent of the various email sextortion campaigns that went viral earlier this year, which led with a password the recipient used at some point in the past and threatened to release embarrassing videos of the recipient unless a bitcoin ransom was paid.

I could see this spam campaign being extremely disruptive in the short run. There is little doubt that some businesses receiving this extortion email will treat it as a credible threat. This is exactly what happened today at one of the banks that forwarded me their copy of this email. Also, KrebsOnSecurity has received reports that numerous school districts across the country have closed schools early today in response to this hoax email threat.

“There are several serious legal problems with this — people will be calling the police, and they cannot ignore even a known hoax,” said Jason McNew, CEO and founder of Stronghold Cyber Security, a consultancy based in Gettysburg, Pa.

This is a developing story, and may be updated throughout the day.

Update: 4:46 p.m. ET: Added bit about school closings.

Will Central Ohio have a White Christmas?

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 12:48

Christmas is almost upon us and we're getting a lot of questions regarding our chances to see a white Christmas. A white Christmas by the National Weather Service(NWS) standards require 1" of snow or more on the ground on Christmas morning.

Image courtesy: NOAA

Our most recent white Christmas was last year(1" snow depth) and we've had 3 total since 2000. On average, we see a white Christmas about 25% of the time. ​So yes, there is a chance but based on climatology, it's not as high as what many are probably hoping. That is also the case for this year based on the latest forecast guidance.

The Climate Prediction Center(CPC) temperature forecast for December 20 through the 26 leads slightly above average for Ohio.

The precipitation forecast is similar, with a slightly above average tilt over the time period. Based on this, I believe that chances for a white Christmas are low as of now.

This is a broad assumption considering the lack of information that is currently available. As we get within 7-10 days, models will begin to hint at potential storm systems moving through the area, which could then lead to rain/snow based on how temperatures pan out. Once we are within a week, models will begin to come in line and we'll have more information and confidence on whether or not we'll see a white Christmas for the second year in a row. In the meantime, keep it here with 10TV for the latest.

High schooler gives classmate with special needs surprise Christmas gift

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 11:37

Friends at an Arizona high school are inspiring others after a surprise gift giving was caught on camera.

Matthew Sabetta is a Maricopa High School student who has Williams syndrome, a developmental disorder that includes characteristics like health issues and developmental delays.

Senior Jacob Marr met Sabetta at school and learned he loves cement trucks, so he got him a Tonka Truck for Christmas.

Sabetta was shocked and overjoyed. His parents said he brings the truck everywhere now.

"It was a big surprise,” Sabetta said. “I got happy tears, it was my lucky day.”

Marr said Sabetta makes everyone’s day, so he figured he could make his day at least once.

The principal of Maricopa High said he has 2,400 students, and the friendship between the two teens showed great things can happen when students care about each other.

Ohio State players: Urban Meyer won't let go until the end

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 11:36

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Retiring Ohio State coach Urban Meyer isn't easing out of the job just yet, not as long as there's one more game to win.

Buckeyes players said this week that Meyer has been at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center for every practice and is fully engaged in preparations for the Rose Bowl. As usual, he's still sweating the small stuff. That kind of intensity made him one of the greatest college coaches of all time, but it also hastened his exit from the game.

Meyer announced Dec. 5 he would step down after the Jan. 1 game and hand the keys to the program to offensive coordinator Ryan Day. Debilitating headaches caused by a cyst in Meyer's brain worsened throughout the season, and he said he needs to step away from the high-stress job. His season started with a three-game suspension over mismanagement of now-fired assistant Zach Smith, who had been accused of domestic abuse.

By all accounts, he hasn't taken his foot off the gas yet, even if he seems to be enjoying himself more than usual.

"Usually coach Meyer is really tough on us, but it brings the best out of us," running back Mike Weber said. "But lately it is good to just see him smile and joke around and everything is not always about football. You get to enjoy him kind of like a father figure, just enjoy having normal conversations and see a different side of him."

"Seeing a smile on his face brings a smile to your face," receiver Johnnie Dixon said, "because you see nothing but joy and know he's at peace right now."

Despite emerging with an 11-1 record, a second-consecutive Big Ten championship, Rose Bowl berth and No. 6 ranking, this season was a rough one for the seventh-year Ohio State coach.

It began with a three-game suspension. When he got back, he lost star defensive end Nick Bosa to a season-ending injury and the defense struggled, leading to a loss at Purdue on Oct. 20 that ultimately kept the Buckeyes out of the College Football Playoff.

Meyer seemed in pain at times on the sideline. During one game in early October, he dropped to a knee because of a severe headache and was treated by medical staff.

All of that, he acknowledged, contributed to his decision to retire but remain in Columbus and stay connected in some capacity to Ohio State. He said he won't coach again.

"I don't think that it has dampened any spirits," offensive tackle Isaiah Prince said. "I think it is a little emotional because coach Meyer has done a lot for us, especially me. I am forever grateful for him, but I think a lot of us have the attitude to just go out with a bang and send coach Meyer out the right way."

The Buckeyes face No. 9 Washington, the PAC 12 champion, in Pasadena.

"(He's) still driving, still pushing us," defensive tackle Robert Landers said. "You mess up, he's gonna tell you about it, so nothing has changed. I feel that's a part of what coach Meyer is. He's naturally a competitor. Stepping out is one of the hardest things he's had to do and while he's still here in the facility, he's not gonna change. It's in his nature. He couldn't help it if he wanted to."

Players said the "win one for coach" talk is intensifying.

"When one of your toughest soldiers is calling it quits, we need to go out with a bang," Dixon said. "It means a lot to us and a lot to him — all the work we've put in together. It's a good thing to leave him with something that would mean a lot to him, which is another win."

DECISIONS, DECISIONS

As expected, junior defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones said he's foregoing his senior year to enter the NFL draft. Several Ohio State players will decide whether to leave early for the draft, but they are waiting until after the Rose Bowl to make any announcement.

Quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. is among them. The Heisman Trophy finalist broke scores of single-season passing records in his first year as a starter. If he leaves, which he is expected to do, he's projected to be a first-round pick.

Others include Weber, safety Jordan Fuller, linebacker Malik Harrison and receiver K.J. Hill.

MADD teams up with Uber to keep drunk drivers off the road this holiday season

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 11:07

According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the number of people killed by a drunk driver has increased 35 percent in the past five years. Now, MADD is teaming up with Uber to launch a campaign to convince people to ride, not drive, after drinking.

At her home in Powell, surrounded by three children who are filled with excitement inspired by Santa, Deanna Russo said the holiday season is bittersweet.

"The pain is very real, especially at Christmas," Russo said.

Twenty years ago, her sister, Karen, was killed in Buffalo, New York, when a drunk driver crossed the double yellow line and collided with the vehicle Karen was riding in. She was 18.

Russo said she got a phone call in the middle of the night to go to the hospital.

"A police investigator walked in and said there was an accident, and Karen didn't make it,” she said.

Russo said the drunk driver who killed sister her had a blood alcohol level of .14.

A holiday ornament displaying Karen's photo dangles on the Christmas tree alongside the ornaments crafted by the nieces and nephew who never got to meet their aunt.

Statistics suggest before the holiday season is over, more than one Ohio family will understand Deanna Russo's pain.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said last year during the Christmas holiday, nine people were killed on the roads. Three of those deadly crashes were OVI-related.

It continued through the New Year, where OSHP reported five fatal crashes that ended six lives. Troopers said two of those crashes were OVI-related.

During the entire holiday week in 2017, Ohio troopers made nearly 300 OVI arrests.

Troopers caution drunk drivers are on the roads at all times of the day, every day of the week. In 2017, OSHP arrested more than 400 drunk drivers between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.

Russo said after 20 years, she is left with the reality that the crash that ended her sister's life was completely preventable. This holiday season, Russo is urging everyone to arrange a safe ride home before they head out to festive celebrations.

"Drunk driving is not something that you should think about when you're at the party, or at the bar, and you've had two, or three, or four, because by then, it's too late," she said.

Man rescued in coal mine: Four-day ordeal was 'terrible'

Channel 10 news - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 11:04

CLEAR CREEK, W.Va. (AP) - Their faces covered in black soot, three adults safely rescued after several days in an abandoned West Virginia coal mine were mobbed by loved ones in a teary reunion, then they thanked the crews that got them out.

The three walked out of an ambulance at a fire hall in Whitesville to the screams of relatives for a brief reunion Wednesday night before being taken to a hospital.

Cody Beverly told news outlets the four-day experience inside Elk Run Coal's Rock House Powellton mine near Clear Creek "was terrible."

"I'm with my family now. I'm fine," he said.

Beverly later told NBC News "this is the biggest lesson I've ever learned in my life. This is a life-changing experience for me."

Randall Williams, whose daughter, Kayla Williams, was among the rescued, said she had gone into the mine in search of copper.

People in the region do "whatever they can do to make money if they ain't got a job," Randall Williams told CBS News.

Reports of people entering abandoned mines in search of copper to sell are not uncommon.

Two weeks ago, crews abandoned their search at another mine for a missing man suspected of stealing copper. Two other men who were arrested indicated the third man had gone inside a mine, but the search was called off after a search team encountered unsafe conditions.

Abandoned coal mines contain toxic levels of gas, and roof falls, flooding and other dangers may exist. The latest search effort had prompted Gov. Jim Justice to issue a plea for people to stay away from abandoned mines.

The Raleigh County Sheriff's Office had identified those rescued as Beverly, 21, of Dorothy; Kayla Williams, 25, of Artie; and Erica Treadway, 31, of Pax. They had been missing since Saturday. A fourth person, Eddie Williams, 43, of Artie, walked out of the mine Monday. An abandoned ATV the four were believed to be riding was found near the mine's entrance.

Williams' aunt, Sandra Scarbro of Clear Creek, told The Register-Herald of Beckley, "We got our Christmas miracle. All we really know is she's alive, and we're so thankful that she's out and that they're all out. We appreciate everybody in the community, the governor and rescuers, everything everybody has done."

Crews had used fans to move fresh air into the mine while pumps cleared some standing water inside the mine, but the water levels remained too high and hampered search efforts.

"My shoes were soaked, and I couldn't get my feet warm," Treadway said as she was being placed on an ambulance stretcher.

According to the state mine safety office, coal has not been mined at the underground location for two years.
