Nurse says he was sexually assaulted by former Ohio State doctor

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 14:38

Another man comes forward, saying he was sexually assaulted by a former Ohio State University doctor, Richard Strauss. He's not an athlete, but a nurse.

Brian Garrett worked in an off-campus clinic Strauss opened in 1996. He said the clinic did not seem legitimate, lacking supplies and medical charts.

Garrett says Dr. Strauss had him stand in on an exam where Strauss fondled a patient’s penis until he ejaculated. Then he says Strauss examined him for heartburn and he himself was abused.

“Next thing you know, he’s undoing my pants and pulling my pants down,” said Garrett. “Just laying there in shock, why? What is he doing? I just said I have heartburn.”

Garrett is very upset that leadership at Ohio State may have known about the abuse and didn’t take action. He is considering taking legal action but is not yet part of a lawsuit.

Heath man gets life in prison for murder of infant daughter

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 12:56

NEWARK — A Heath man convicted of murder in the death of his 3-month old daughter who was found dead on a closet shelf has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 15 years.

A judge in Newark sentenced 26-year-old Ryan Mosholder on Monday after the Heath man pleaded guilty to murder and child endangering charges.

Heath police say Mosholder's daughter, Bri'Anna, was found dead in an apartment in March. Licking County's coroner determined she had severe head trauma, fractured bones and bruises all over her body. Prosecutors said Bri'Anna's fatal injuries resulted from Mosholder striking or shaking her.

Defense attorney Andrew Sanderson said Mosholder's addiction to methamphetamines affected his actions. Mosholder declined to comment.

More than 600 birds being removed from Clintonville home

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 12:39

The Capital Area Humane Society and ASPCA are removing more than 600 birds from a Clintonville home.

Staff from both agencies were seen carrying large cages from the home, some around 4 feet tall, Tuesday afternoon.

According to the ASPCA, the seizure is the result of a public complaint concerning living conditions and reports of animal neglect.

A variety of bird species, including parakeets, cockatiels, finches, Macaws, African grey parrots, Amazon parrots and Cockatoos were found living in extremely overcrowded conditions, some with medical issues, missing feathers, and a lack of adequate husbandry, according to the ASPCA.

U-Haul trucks were brought in along with three vans and a trailer to transport and house the birds.

The birds will be taken to a temporary shelter where the birds will receive medical assessments and care.

No charges have been filed at this time.

Columbus Humane will be closed to the public Tuesday as the staff is focusing on this seizure and investigation.

All Animal Support Center appointments will continue as scheduled. If you are scheduled to pick up your newly adopted animal today, please call 614.777.7387 to reschedule.

Police look into video of man spanking hippo at LA Zoo

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 12:01

LOS ANGELES — Police are investigating after a video shows a man spanking a hippopotamus at the Los Angeles Zoo.

The video shows the man crossing a railing last week and sneaking up on two hippos, Rosie and Mara. He smacks Rosie on the rear and her mother lifts her head as the man runs off and raises his arms in gesture of victory.

Zoo spokeswoman April Spurlock tells the Los Angeles Times that any unauthorized interaction with an animal is unsafe for the animal and potentially unsafe for the person.

Spurlock says state law prohibits entering zoo enclosures. The zoo has posted a "No Trespassing" sign on the exhibit for the first time.

Police told the newspaper they're investigating the case as trespassing because the hippo didn't appear to be injured.

Police: Two 17-year-olds turn themselves in, admit to defacing Lancaster mural

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 11:22

LANCASTER -- According to a police report from the Lancaster police department, a pair of 17-year-old boys turned themselves in, admitting to defacing a mural with racist and homophobic words and images.

The report states that one of the boys turned himself in Monday evening and the other did shortly thereafter. Charges are being forwarded to the juvenile prosecutor.

The mural, designed to promote harmony and togetherness in Lancaster, is located underneath a bridge near a grocery store.

The artwork is only three months old and was painted and designed by Lancaster artist, Remo Remoquillo.

"It was shocking!", said Peggy Mahler, secretary for the Fairfield Heritage Trail Association, who played a big role in making sure the mural was painted.

City workers spent Monday morning cleaning the mural. It was cleaned and power washed by early afternoon.

Mahler says the important message is that artwork is replaceable, but hatred is not welcomed in Lancaster.

"It can always be fixed. But the attitudes need some improvement," she said.

Nebraska executes first inmate using fentanyl

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 10:29

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska carried out its first execution in more than two decades on Tuesday with a drug combination never tried before, including the first use of the powerful opioid fentanyl in a lethal injection.

Carey Dean Moore, 60, was pronounced dead at 10:47 a.m. Moore had been sentenced to death for killing two cab drivers in Omaha in 1979. He was the first inmate to be lethally injected in Nebraska, which last carried out an execution in 1997, using the electric chair.

Witnesses said that there appeared to be no complications in the execution process, which also was the first time a state used four drugs in combination.

At one point while on the gurney, Moore turned his head and mouthed several words to his family, including "I love you."

In his final written statement , Moore admitted: "I am guilty." But he said there are others on Nebraska's death row who he believes are innocent and he said they should be released.

"How might you feel if your loved one was innocent and on death row?" Moore asked.

Moore's execution comes a little more than three years after Nebraska lawmakers abolished the death penalty, only to have it reinstated the following year through a citizen ballot drive partially financed by Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts. The governor, a wealthy former businessman, has said he was fulfilling the wishes of voters in the conservative state.

The Nebraska drug protocol called for an initial IV dose of diazepam, commonly known as Valium, to render the inmate unconscious, followed by the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl, then cisatracurium besylate to induce paralysis and stop the inmate from breathing and potassium chloride to stop the heart. After each injection, prison officials sent saline through the IV to flush out any residue and ensure all the drugs had entered the inmate's system.

Diazepam and cisatracurium also had never been used in executions before.

According to prosecutors, Moore was 21 when he fatally shot Reuel Van Ness during a robbery with his younger brother, and used the money to buy drugs and pornography. Moore fatally shot Maynard Helgeland by himself five days later, saying he wanted to prove he could take a man's life by himself. Moore was arrested a week later. He was charged and convicted of first-degree murder, while his 14-year-old brother was convicted of second-degree murder.

In his statement, Moore also apologized to his brother, who was with him during the 1979 robbery and murder of Van Ness.

"I should (have) led him in the right way to go instead of bringing him down, way down," Moore said of his brother.

Moore had faced execution dates set by the Nebraska Supreme Court seven times since he was convicted, but each was delayed because of legal challenges and questions over whether previous lethal injection drugs were purchased legally. For some relatives of Moore's victims, that was far too long — and they hope his name and crimes will finally vanish from headlines.

"We're sick of hearing about Carey Dean Moore," Steve Helgeland, one of Maynard Helgeland's three children, said ahead of the execution.

Helgeland said the numerous delays in executing Moore had left him ambivalent about whether his father's killer dies by lethal injection or spends the rest of his life in prison. Helgeland said he plans to be present at the prison for the execution to honor his father's memory, but that he won't witness it.

"There was a point in my life when I probably would have pulled the switch myself, but 39 years has a way of dissipating your anger," he said.

A Germany-based drugmaker tried to halt the execution last week, filing a lawsuit that alleged the state had illegally procured at least one of the company's drugs. The company, Fresenius Kabi, argued that allowing the execution to go forward would harm its reputation and business relationships.

But a federal judge sided with state attorneys , who argued that the public's interest in carrying out a lawful execution outweighed the company's concerns. The judge also noted that Moore had stopped fighting the state's efforts to execute him.

A federal appeals court upheld that ruling Monday, and Fresenius Kabi decided not to take the issue to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Zach Smith never told Urban Meyer about 2013 DUI arrest, attorney says

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 09:23

Former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith, who was fired last month after a history of domestic violence allegations became public, was arrested for suspected drunken driving in 2013 but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Documents obtained by The Toledo Blade showed Smith was stopped for speeding in Dublin in the early hours of Feb. 23, 2013. He was arrested after failing a field sobriety test and declining to take a blood-alcohol test.

In April 2013, Smith pleaded guilty to an amended charge of failure to control and paid a $375 fine.

“Zach’s case was quickly reduced based upon the lack of evidence that he was noticeably impaired,” Smith's attorney Brad Koffel said in a statement.

Koffel said Smith attended a 72-hour alcohol intervention program and no follow-up counseling was recommended.

Smith’s attorney also said his client never told Urban Meyer about the arrest.

"Much like his 2018 criminal trespass case filed against him by his ex-wife, Zach chose to deal with it on his own and not involve the university or athletic department,” Koffel said.

Smith was fired on July 23. The university is investigating coach Urban Meyer's handling of the domestic abuse allegations against Smith. Smith has never been criminally charged.

Girls fight back, throw hot coffee on man trying to abduct them

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 09:04

MILLINGTON, Mich. — Police say girls threw hot coffee and fought to stop a man who was trying to abduct them.

The girls, who range in age from 11 to 14, were leaving a convenience store in Millington, Michigan, on Monday night when they told police 22-year-old Bruce Hipkins grabbed the youngest around the head and said she was coming with him.

The three other girls threw hot coffee on Hipkins and kicked and hit him until he let the girl go.

"My sister's friend just kept hitting, kicking, and scratching him and I just kept hitting him too," 11-year-old Allison Eickhoff told CBS affiliate WNEM-TV.

Then police say he grabbed another girl by her hair and the others renewed their attack until he released their friend.

According to WNEM-TV, police confirmed Hipkins has developmental disabilities.

While shaken up, Allison said she's glad she fought for her life.

"I'm mad but I want him to get the help he needs," Eickhoff said.

Hipkins has been charged with kidnapping, unlawful imprisonment, assault with intent to commit sexual penetration and other charges. His bond has been set at $250,000.

Omarosa reveals audio of Trump campaign aides allegedly discussing potential fallout of N-word

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 06:24

President Trump says former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newmanlied when she called him a racist who has said the N-word on tape. The president tweeted Monday night, "I don't have that word in my vocabulary and never have. She made it up." But a new recording, obtained by CBS News overnight, seems to back up Omarosa's story that several Trump advisers discussed an alleged tape during the 2016 campaign.

Trump campaign advisers denied on Monday that any conversations took place. CBS News has not been able to verify the authenticity of the recording - though it appears to confirm Omarosa's claims that Trump campaign officials were aware of a tape in which then-candidate Trump uses a racial slur, and they talked about how to handle it.

During her whirlwind book tour, former White House aide Omarosa claimed to have heard tape of President Trump using the N-word during his time on "The Apprentice."

In her new book, "Unhinged," Omarosa claims the Trump campaign was aware of the existence of the tape. She describes an October 2016 phone conversation with Lynne Patton, then-assistant to Eric Trump, spokesperson Katrina Pierson and campaign communications director Jason Miller in which they discuss how to deal with the potential fallout from its release.

"I am trying to find at least what context it was used in to help us maybe try to figure out a way to spin it," Pierson is heard saying.

Patton then described a conversation she had with then-candidate Trump about making the slur.

Patton: "I said, 'Well, sir, can you think of anytime where this happened?' And he said, 'no.'"

Omarosa: "Well, that is not true."

Patton: "He goes, how do you think I should handle it and I told him exactly what you just said, Omarosa, which is well, it depends on what scenario you are talking about. And he said, well, why don't you just go ahead and put it to bed."

Pierson: "He said. No, he said it. He is embarrassed by it."

Appearing on Fox News Monday night before the release of the audio, Pierson denied the call ever took place saying, "No, Ed (Henry). That did not happen. Sounds like she is writing a script for a movie."

The White House and Trump campaign have not provided responses to this new development and neither have Pierson or Patton, who denied the existence of the call in a tweet Monday night and called Omarosa's book a "work of fiction." It should be pointed out that during the time of the call, the participants said they had not actually heard the tape.

Highway bridge collapses in Italy, cars plunge 260 feet

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 05:16

MILAN (AP) — A bridge on a main highway between Italy and France collapsed Tuesday in the Italian city of Genoa during a sudden, violent storm, sending vehicles plunging 262 feet into a heap of rubble below.

Amalia Tedeschi, a firefighter, told RAI state TV that some 20 vehicles had been involved in the collapse. She said two people had been pulled alive from vehicles in the rubble that fell into an industrial area below the bridge and were being transported by helicopter to a hospital.

Italian media reported deaths in the tragedy, but Maria Luisa Catalano, a police official in Genoa, said authorities were focused on rescue efforts and did not yet know the number of victims or injured.

The private broadcaster Sky TG24 said a 200-meter (over 650-foot) section of the Morandi Bridge collapsed over an industrial zone. Firefighters told The Associated Press they were worried about gas lines exploding in the area from the collapse.

Photos published by ANSA on its website showed a huge gulf between two sections of the bridge.

Video captured the sound of a man screaming: "Oh God! Oh, God!" Other images showed a green truck that had stopped just short of the gaping hole in the bridge. The tires of a tractor trailor could be seen in the rubble.

Italy's transport minister, Danilo Toninelli, called the collapse "an enormous tragedy."

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said some 200 firefighters were responding to the accident.

"We are following minute by minute the situation of the bridge collapse in Genoa," Salvini said on Twitter.

The disaster occurred on a highway that connects Italy to France and other vacation resorts on the eve of a major Italian holiday on Wednesday, Ferragosto. Traffic would have been heavier than usual as many Italians traveled to beaches or mountains.

The Morandi Bridge is a main thoroughfare connecting the A10 highway that goes toward France and the A7 highway that continues north toward Milan. Inaugurated in 1967, it is 90 meters (295 feet) high, just over a kilometer (.6 miles) long, with the longest section between supports measuring 200 meters (over 650 feet).

ANSA said authorities suspected that a structural weakness caused the collapse on Tuesday.

Report warns of significant rise in mosquito "disease danger days" in U.S.

Channel 10 news - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 04:57

As global temperatures continue to rise, the number of mosquito "disease danger days" is increasing across much of the United States, representing a greater risk for transmission of mosquito-borne diseases, according to a new report.

Among the many consequences of climate change is a shift in the pattern, incidence and location of insect-borne diseases, including those spread by the bites of mosquitoes, ticks and fleas. These diseases pose a significant public health risk and can have deadly consequences, warns the report published by Climate Central, a nonprofit news organization that analyzes and reports on climate science.

While a variety of mosquitoes are found throughout the U.S., the researchers focused on two species: Culex and Aedes (encompassing both Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus). These mosquitoes both transmit West Nile virus while Aedes mosquitoes also transmit other dangerous viruses, including dengue, Zika, chikungunya, and Yellow Fever.

To determine the role temperature is playing in disease transmission from mosquitoes, researchers from Climate Central analyzed the number of days each year in the spring, summer and fall with an average temperature between 61 degrees and 93 degrees Fahrenheit from 1970 to 2017. This temperature is considered the range for transmission of the diseases spread by Aedes and Culex mosquitoes.

Out of the 244 cities the researchers analyzed, 94 percent are seeing an increase in the number of "disease danger days," or days indicating a heightened risk for disease transmission.

The top 10 cities with the biggest change in the number of disease danger days since 1970 include:

  1. Reno, NV
  2. San Francisco, CA
  3. Santa Maria, CA
  4. Las Cruces, NM
  5. El Paso, TX
  6. Tucson, AZ
  7. Helena, MT
  8. Erie, PA
  9. Fresno, CA​
  10. Bluefield, VA

Health impacts of climate change

This is not the first report to warn about the about the impact of climate change on diseases caused by mosquitoes, ticks and fleas (also called vectors).

In a 2017 report from the Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health, an organization representing 500,000 clinical practitioners aimed at taking action against climate change, Dr. Nitin Damle, the former president of the American College of Physicians, shared that over the past five years, his practice has seen a significant rise in tick-borne diseases, including Lyme disease and other infections.

"Those blacklegged ticks, the carriers of Lyme disease, thrive in warm, muggy weather," Damle wrote. "In my home state of Rhode Island, where winters have gotten warmer and shorter, these tiny, sesame seed-sized insects have more time to bite humans and spread Lyme disease. Tick season used to be relegated to summer; it now spans spring and autumn. And this isn't limited to the typical tick hotspot states."

Another 2017 report, entitled The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change, also warns that seasonal patterns and warming are expected to not only lead to earlier seasonal tick activity but may also speed up mosquito biting rates, accelerate the mosquito life cycle and decrease the time needed for an infected mosquito to transmit West Nile Virus.

And earlier this year, the CDC reported that the number of illnesses caused by mosquito, tick, and flea bites has tripled in the United States over the last 13 years, though the report also does not specifically mention climate change or global warming as factors.

How to protect yourself from vector-borne diseases

Along with tackling the causes of global warming to mitigate its health consequences, experts are calling on government officials to take steps to reduce the spread of illnesses by mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. Researchers say state and local officials should build and sustain public health programs that test for and track vector-borne diseases, train vector control staff appropriately, and educate the public on how best to prevent bites and control the spread of germs by mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas in their communities.

On a daily basis, everyone can help keep their families safe by:

  • Using an EPA-registered insect repellent that contains 20 percent or more DEET, picaridin, or IR3535 on exposed skin.
  • Wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants.
  • Treating outdoor gear, such as boots, pants, socks, and tents, with permethrin or use permethrin-treated clothing and gear.
  • Conduct a full-body tick check using a hand-held or full-length mirror to view all parts of your body upon return from tick-infested areas. Parents should check their children for ticks.
  • Taking steps to control ticks and fleas on pets.
  • Taking steps to control mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas inside and outside your home, including using screens on windows and air conditioning when available. Once a week, empty out items that hold water, such as tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpots, or trash containers to prevent mosquitoes from breeding there.
