Jackson scores 18 as No. 16 Ohio State routs Rutgers 79-52

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 19:15

C.J. Jackson scored 18 points to help No. 16 Ohio State rout Rutgers 79-52 on Tuesday night.

Kaleb Wesson added 14, and Kam Williams, playing his last home game, had 13 as the Buckeyes (23-7, 14-3 Big Ten) got a feel-good win on senior night, coming on the heels of tough road losses to Penn State and Michigan that dropped them out of first place in the conference.

Corey Sanders had 12 points for the Scarlet Knights (13-17, 3-14). They've lost eight of their last nine games.

Keita Bates-Diop, Ohio State's best player who missed most of last season to a leg injury, continued to struggle with his shooting. After starting the month as the likely candidate for Big Ten Player of the Year, he has had trouble scoring against more aggressive defenses. He had just six points against Rutgers on 3-for-11 shooting.

Bates-Diop has a year of eligibility remaining but likely will leave for the NBA. He graduated from Ohio State in December.

Jae'Sean Tate, also playing his last game at Value City Arena, had nine points and 10 rebounds.

Ohio State led 32-27 at the half. The Buckeyes had built a 19-point lead coming off an 11-0 run with 5:41 left in the half but then went cold. Rutgers put together a 16-2 run to finish the half, during which Ohio State went 1 for 8 from the floor.

But Rutgers, one of the nation's worst offensive teams, opened the second half 1 for 8, and Ohio State took control with an 18-2 run.


Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights took advantage of a period of cold shooting by Ohio State but just didn't have the talent to keep it up in the second half.

Ohio State: Buckeyes did what was expected against a poor team after dropping two on the road. They will need some help to win the regular-season conference title, but they've been one of the college basketball's best stories this season.


Rutgers: Finishes regular season Sunday at Illinois.

Ohio State: Finishes Friday at Indiana.

MORPC announces rapid-speed transportation initiative

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 19:05

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission is launching a new initiative to explore routes that could utilize rapid-speed transportation technologies.

The initiative will study the feasibility of Hyperloop technology following an environmental study.

For these two studies and later phases, the MORPC anticipates the total cost to reach approximately $2.5 million.

The MORPC says multiple partners, the cities of Columbus, Marysville and Lima, have committed financial resources for the initiative.

“We are excited to partner with leading public and private organizations on the future of rapid-speed transportation here in Central Ohio,” said MORPC Executive Director William Murdock. “Being in one of the fastest growing regions in the Midwest and with the potential to add up to 1 million people by 2050, we are taking the next steps in exploring the best transportation options for both passengers and freight that will better connect Columbus to Chicago and Pittsburgh.”

Midwest Connect, spearheaded by MORPC and regional partners, was one of 10 global winners of the Virgin Hyperloop One Global Challenge.

Army awards medals to 3 students killed in Florida shooting

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 18:30

PARKLAND, Fla. (CNN) - The army is awarding medals for heroism to three students killed in last week's Florida school shooting.

JROTC cadets Alaina Petty, Peter Wang and Martin Duque were among the 17 people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

An Army spokesman says they are receiving heroism medals because of their brave actions during the attack.

Wang was shot while holding a door open so others could escape. He was buried Tuesday wearing his medal pinned to his JROTC uniform.

Petty’s family received her medal at her funeral on Monday.

Duque's family will be presented with his medal during a service Saturday.

2 state senators in Ohio propose statewide ban on assault weapons

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 17:12

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Two Democratic lawmakers in Ohio want assault weapons banned statewide in the wake of recent deadly mass shootings.

Sens. Michael Skindell and Charleta Tavares introduced legislation Tuesday making it a fifth-degree felony to possess or acquire a firearm considered an "assault weapon."

That includes any automatic or semi-automatic firearm capable of accepting a detachable magazine with the capacity to accept ten or more cartridges. It also includes any semi-automatic firearm with a fixed magazine that can accept ten cartridges or more.

A similar bill the pair introduced in 2013 went nowhere in Ohio's Republican-led Legislature.

However, their latest effort follows comments Monday by Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich supporting limits of the ability to sell weapons often used in mass killings, such as the AR-15 rifle.

Gun found at Walnut Ridge High School

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 17:11

COLUMBUS, Ohio- An 18-year-old student at Walnut Ridge High School is charged after police said he brought a gun to school.

According to records filed in Franklin County Municipal Court, a school resource officer was alerted on Feb. 2 that a 16-year-old student may have a gun in a book bag.

A security officer checked the bag and found a Ruger handgun as well as a loaded magazine in the student’s pocket.

Then police learned another student, Darin Lurry, may have brought the handgun to school and had either sold or given the gun to the 16-year-old, according to court records.

A detective interviewed Lurry who admitted to meeting the other student in the boys' bathroom with the intention of selling the gun for $120. Lurry is charged as an adult.

He is facing a fifth-degree felony charge of illegally conveying a deadly weapon in a school zone.

It is unclear what charges the other student is facing.

Records: Man accused of killing Rachael Anderson required to wear GPS monitor

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 16:16

COLUMBUS - Anthony Pardon stood silently in court Tuesday as a prosecutor read aloud a nine-count indictment charging him with the aggravated murder, rape and kidnapping of 24-year old Rachael Anderson.

It wasn't his first time in court. That happened when he was 10.

Pardon, who pleaded not guilty to his current charges, has a lengthy criminal history that includes a 1980 juvenile conviction from raping a nine-month-old child.

In 1982, he was convicted of attempted murder, robbery and rape for trying to drown a woman behind the Valley Dale Ballroom. Pardon spent 24 years in prison in Ohio following that conviction, O'Brien said.

It is for those reasons that Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said his office is seeking the death penalty against Pardon.

"There are some people who can't conform their conduct to the law. And it at least is alleged that he is one of them," O'Brien told reporters Tuesday.

10 Investigates has uncovered court documents from Georgia that raise questions about if Pardon should have been more closely watched in Ohio.

In 2007, Pardon was convicted in Floyd County, Georgia of forgery and failing to register as a sex offender. He served ten years in prison there, with an additional 20 years to be served on probation.

Records obtained by 10 Investigates state that Pardon is required to "wear a GPS ankle monitor and pay all expenses." Pardon was transferred to Ohio in 2017 as part of an interstate compact with Georgia.

An ODRC spokeswoman confirmed that Pardon "was on probation through the interstate compact with Georgia" but has not answered additional follow-up emails or phone calls that would answer if Pardon was assigned a GPS ankle monitor in Ohio.

Booking video from the Franklin County Jail obtained by 10 Investigates from the night Pardon was arrested do not show deputies removing a GPS device.

O'Brien did not immediately respond to a follow-up email seeking clarity.

10 investigates stopped by the house on Monday where Pardon had been staying prior to his arrest in early February on charges of Anderson's murder.

A woman who identified herself as Pardon's sister invited us inside. Anthony Pardon happened to be on the phone calling from the jail at the time. 10 Investigates asked Pardon a few questions about the terms of his probation but he declined to answer. His sister then told us to leave.

Police have released few details about Rachael Anderson's murder other than her body was found in the closet of her Columbus apartment on Jan. 29 and that it appeared she had been tortured.

O'Brien said Tuesday that Pardon and Anderson were strangers and that Pardon had entered Anderson's Columbus apartment without her permission and attacked her.

"It was a crime of opportunity," O'Brien said.

Tina Kennedy, Rachael Anderson's friend, appeared in court Tuesday. She said she came to learn more about the case against Pardon.

When asked if she thought the capital murder charges were appropriate she said, yes, adding: "He never should have been let out of jail in the first place. He never should have had a chance to this again."

Kennedy said that her friend returned to her apartment around 2 p.m. on January 28. Friends worried about Rachael Anderson after she did not show up to work at a Columbus funeral home on Monday, Jan. 29th and called 911.

Kennedy said she wanted others to remember her friend as she did.

"She was amazing. She was sweet. She was kind. Loving, caring, She had a huge heart. She would help anyone she could. She was great. She was an amazing person."

Pardon is being held on no bond.

Richland County teen to shave her head to benefits kids with cancer

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 14:54

A teen is pledging to shave her head to raise money for kids with cancer. She's doing it because she knows how those kids feel.

Lucas High School Senior Liz Yirga was diagnosed with congenital pseudarthrosis at 16 weeks old, a condition where her tibia was cartilage instead of bone. Her parents were told she would never walk or crawl and would have to have her legs amputated.

Instead, Yirga went through 27 surgeries. She had a painful leg halo and medication that made her hair fall out at age 6.

“I always {saw} the Disney princesses and oh, great hair and looked at myself and thought, oh wow, I’m not that, it really hurt my self-esteem,” said Yirga.

Yirga went on to not only walk but play three high school sports.

But she doesn’t want any other little girl to feel the way she did. She is shaving her head and raising money for the St. Baldrick's foundation to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

She plans to auction off the rights to a fellow student to man the clippers. It will all happen right before the annual staff versus student basketball game March 16 at 7 p.m.

Trump urges ban on gun devices like bump stocks

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 14:12

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he has signed a memo directing the Justice Department to propose regulations to "ban all devices" like the rapid-fire bump stocks involved in last year's Las Vegas massacre.

Seeking to show action days after a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Trump spoke during a White House ceremony recognizing bravery by the nation's public safety officers.

"We must move past clichés and tired debates and focus on evidence based solutions and security measures that actually work," Trump said.

The announcement came days after the shooting deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The device Trump referred to was used in the October shooting deaths of 58 people in Las Vegas, and attached to a half-dozen of the long guns found in the shooter's hotel room. A legislative effort to ban the device fizzled out last year.

White House officials say the president will be meeting with students, teachers and state and local officials to discuss ways of providing more school safety and address gun violence. Pressure has been mounting for action after the Parkland shooting.

Trump has also indicated he is open to a limited strengthening of federal background checks on gun purchases.

Over the weekend, the White House said he had spoken Friday to Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, about a bipartisan bill designed to strengthen the FBI database of prohibited gun buyers.

Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders qualified the support, stressing that talks continue and "revisions are being considered," but said "the president is supportive of efforts to improve the federal background check system."

The main action Trump has taken on guns has been to sign a resolution blocking an Obama-era rule designed to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people. The president has voiced strong support for gun rights and the National Rifle Association.

The bipartisan background check legislation would be aimed at ensuring that federal agencies and states accurately report relevant criminal information to the FBI. It was introduced after the Air Force failed to report the criminal history of the gunman who slaughtered more than two dozen people at a Texas church.

The White House statement comes as shooting survivors and other young people press for more gun control in a rising chorus of grief and activism. Their "March for Our Lives" is planned March 24 in Washington.

Ella Fesler, 16-year-old high school student in Alexandria, Virginia, was among the students at the "lie-in" in front of the White House. She said it was time for change, adding: "Every day when I say 'bye' to my parents, I do acknowledge the fact that I could never see my parents again."

But previous gun tragedies have not led Congress to act. After the Las Vegas massacre in the fall, Republicans and Democrats in Congress talked about taking a rare step to tighten the nation's gun laws. Four months later, the only gun legislation that has moved through Congress eases restrictions for gun owners.

Kristin Brown, co-president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said the measure Trump discussed with Cornyn would help to enforce existing rules but would not close loopholes permitting loose private sales on the internet and at gun shows. She's pressing for a ban on assault-type weapons and for laws enabling family members, guardians or police to ask judges to strip gun rights temporarily from people who show warning signs of violence.

"We need a comprehensive system," Brown said. "One of these isn't enough."

Trump, who visited first responders and some victims Friday, had focused his comments on mental health, rather than guns. The White House says the president will host a "listening session" with students and teachers on Wednesday and will discuss school safety with state and local officials on Thursday. They have offered no further details on who will attend those sessions.

Trump spent most of the weekend at his private Palm Beach estate, Mar-a-Lago. White House aides advised against golfing too soon after the shooting. But on Presidents Day, the avid golfer headed to his nearby golf club. The White House did not answer questions about whether he was playing golf.

President Barack Obama took heavy criticism in 2014 when he went golfing during a vacation just minutes after denouncing the militants who had beheaded an American journalist. He later regretted playing golf so soon after the killing.

Trump watched cable television news during the weekend and groused to club members and advisers about the investigation of Russian election meddling.

In a marathon series of furious weekend tweets from Mar-a-Lago, Trump vented about Russia, raging at the FBI for what he perceived to be a fixation on the Russia investigation at the cost of failing to deter the Florida school attack.

"It's a sad day": Classmates react to death of Payton Young

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 13:24

Payton Young was a 17-year-old high school student who her parents say suffered from depression.

When Young went missing in late January, neither her parents nor her friends had any idea where she went.

But when her car was found at Hayden Falls Park police immediately searched the area hoping to find her.

Police said they found her phone in her car with a suicide note. But no sign of Payton.

That changed in the days to follow. People began calling the police claiming to have seen Payton all over the city.

There were people who said they saw her at Steak N Shake in Hilliard. Others say they saw her in a black Honda with a man. None of it was confirmed.

Police would return to the Scioto River multiple times, but there was ice on the river and it made it hard to search.

On Monday, the Columbus Division of Police Dive Team returned to the waters after what police say was a scheduled search and found Payton's body just east of Hayden Falls Park, 29 days after she went missing.

On Tuesday, her classmates gathered at the falls to remember her. Many said they left school early because the school was just too depressing.

"When it ultimately came out that her body was found it was confusion, [we are] deeply saddened, we all wish for a better outcome," said Nick Taylor, a student at Bishop Watterson High School, where Payton attended.

Payton's family placed missing posters across the city, on electronic billboards, and on the windows of storefronts in Columbus, Hilliard, Dublin, and Bexley,

They even took to social media pleading for her to come home.

As tragic as this outcome is, Payton's classmates want this to be a story about understanding. They hope if other kids are in distress to find help.

"You're not the only one who feels in that situation like that, and don't be afraid to reach out to someone," said Eli Bumps, a student at Bishop Watterson High School.

Host dad who took in accused Fla. shooter: "It's his right" to have an AR-15

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 13:08

The family that took in the Florida school shooting suspect says they knew Nikolas Cruz was depressed but had no idea how troubled he really was. James and Kimberly Snead let Cruz, a friend of their son, live in their house after his mother died in November.

"The Nik we knew was not the Nik that everybody else seemed to know," James Snead told CBS News correspondent John Blackstone.

"He pulled one over on us. As well as a lot of people," Kimberly Snead added.

Cruz had been living with the Snead family for about three months when the 19-year-old allegedly carried out the deadliest school shooting in Florida history.

"How many guns did he have?" Blackstone asked.

"I'm not sure. Five or six," James said.

"He was coming into your house and you didn't know how many guns he had?" Blackstone asked.

"I knew he had five or six; I didn't know what kind they were. It didn't matter what kind of guns they were. I have guns. I respect guns as long as they're handled properly, safely. And one of the stipulations before moving in was to have a gun safe before he moved in," James said.

"So you wanted him to have a gun safe, but you didn't know how many guns or what kind of guns they were that he would be putting in the safe?" Blackstone said.

"I knew he had hunting rifles," James responded.

"You thought they were just hunting rifles?" Blackstone asked.

"I knew he had [an] assault rifle, but I knew he used it out hunting," James said.

"That seemed a reasonable thing," Blackstone said.

"It's his right to own a gun," James responded.

"You thought it was fine for a 19-year-old to have an AR-15?" Blackstone asked.

"It's his right to have it," James said.

"Do you feel any differently about that now?" Blackstone asked.

"No. Nope," James said.

According to a Florida Department of Children and Families report, Cruz suffered from depression, ADHD and autism. Between 2011 and 2016, Broward County sheriff deputies were called to Cruz's mother's home 39 times, several of them allegedly due to Cruz's violent outbursts.

"Did it worry you, him having access to guns?" Blackstone asked the Sneads.

"No, he was just depressed. We thought he was just depressed over his mother's death," James said.

"Were there any signs of trouble beyond his depression?" Blackstone asked.

"No," Kimberly said. "We put him on a positive path, trying to heal. And he just blew it. Just--"

"Floored us," James said.

"Absolutely floored us," Kimberly said.

"Ruined his future, ruined the future of 17 others, and their families," Blackstone said.

"Their families," Kimberly said.

"Very selfish act," James said.

"Do you feel any responsibility?" Blackstone asked.

"We feel heartfelt sorrow for the families involved. As far as being responsible, feeling responsibility, you know we worked that out and there was nothing different we would have done," James responded.

James also told CBS News he thought there was only one key to the gun safe where he made Cruz keep his weapons. But James now believes there were actually two keys – and Cruz had the other.

George and Amal Clooney donate $500K to students organizing march against gun violence

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 12:56

Actor George Clooney and human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney are donating $500,000 to students organizing marches against gun violence, and the couple says they'll also attend next month's planned protests.

In a statement Tuesday, the Clooneys say they're inspired by the "courage and eloquence" of the survivors-turned-activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were killed at the school and others wounded when a former student went on a rampage with an assault rifle. Students are mobilizing a March 24 march in Washington and elsewhere to urge lawmakers to enact tougher gun control.

The Clooneys say they're donating the money in the names of their 8-month-old twins. The couple also says the family plans to "stand side by side" with students next month.

Louisville must vacate 2013 basketball title over sex scandal case

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 12:20

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville must vacate its 2013 men's basketball title following an NCAA appeals panel's decision to uphold sanctions against the men's program in the sex scandal case.

The Cardinals will have to vacate 123 victories including the championship, and return some $600,000 in conference revenue from the 2012-15 NCAA Tournaments.

The decision announced on Tuesday by the governing body's Infraction Appeals Committee ruled that the NCAA has the authority to take away championships for what it considers major rule violations. It also refuted Louisville's position that the NCAA exceeded its boundaries and didn't follow its own precedent established in other cases and said in an eight-page decision that ended, "the penalties are upheld."

"I cannot say this strongly enough: We believe the NCAA is simply wrong," Louisville interim President Dr. Greg Postel said in a statement. "We disagree with the NCAA ruling for reasons we clearly stated in our appeal. And we made a strong case - based on NCAA precedent - that supported our argument."

Louisville now must forfeit its third NCAA title, victories and income from 2012-15, part of the timeframe during which the violations occurred. The decision culminates the governing body's investigation that followed allegations in a 2015 book by escort Katina Powell that former Cardinals basketball staffer Andre McGee hired her and other dancers to strip and have sex with recruits.

"From Day One, the university has admitted that the actions of the former operations director and any others involved under previous leadership were offensive and inexcusable," Postel said in the statement. "That is why we apologized immediately, cooperated fully with the NCAA, self-imposed penalties that were appropriate to the offenses and made significant changes to ensure incidents like this never happen again.

"Under the NCAA's own rules, this cooperation should have been a factor in the severity of the punishment. Instead, it was ignored."

The school's own investigation into the allegation revealed that violations occurred and resulted in a self-imposed postseason ban nearly two years ago. Louisville later imposed scholarship and recruiting restrictions in an effort to mitigate further NCAA discipline.

While the NCAA accepted Louisville's actions, it went further with harsher sanctions last June that included:

— A five-game suspension of former Cardinals coach Rick Pitino, who was fired in October following Louisville's acknowledgement that it was being investigated in a federal bribery probe of college basketball. That measure included a show-cause penalty for Pitino, whom the NCAA criticized for failing to monitor McGee and ignoring multiple red flags;

— Four years' probation, along with the vacation of those wins and appearances in the 2012 and 2013 Final Fours;

— Show-cause penalties for McGee, who is no longer coaching;

— Postel estimated the return of up to $600,000 in NCAA Tournament revenue.

"This dark cloud has hung over our heads for more than two years, and it has had a negative impact on our athletics program, our fans and the entire university family," Postel said. "While we disagree with the NCAA's decision, it is time for the university to close this chapter and move forward with a stronger commitment to excellence on and off the court."

Postel, then-athletic director Tom Jurich and Pitino said last summer they planned to fight the sanctions. Pitino, who repeatedly denied knowing about the activities described in Powell's book, was particularly frustrated with his penalties.

A lot changed at Louisville in the months following the NCAA penalties. Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave and Jurich on paid administrative leave on Sept. 27 following the school's involvement in the FBI probe that initially involved the arrests of 10 people.

Heart health should be a year-round focus

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 11:13

February is the month for love since it’s when we celebrate Valentine’s Day but it’s also National Heart Health Month.

For the central Ohio community of Ross County, there is a year-round focus because heart disease is one of the top causes of death.

Steve Deffenbaugh lived to tell what can happen when there’s a problem with your heart. He went in for a check-up and ended up in cardiac arrest.

“Turns out my heart wasn't in very good shape. I had cardiac arrest after I finished the stress test and they immediately started CPR on me, transported me from stress area right down the hallway to the Cath lab, “Deffenbaugh said.

Adena Health System cardiologist Bruce Chen said Deffenbaugh was fortunate they were able to catch the problem in a controlled environment.

Dr. Chen said Deffenbaugh had severe blood vessel blockages in his heart and diagnosed him with severe three-vessel coronary disease.

Seven months after surgery, Deffenbaugh is active at the Adena cardiac rehabilitation facility. Dr. Chen said it’s designed for patients who have been diagnosed with heart disease.

“It's a 12-week program they come in three times a week and they exercise, and they're monitored closely, given education about nutrition and stress management.”

Deffenbaugh described the change as "leaps and bounds." He said his wife, Leah, has come along with him.

They no longer eat fried chicken but baked, along with fresh fruits and vegetables.

“I’m so proud of him and he encourages me to change the way I eat and to exercise more," Leah Deffenbaugh said.

Lucky Charms unleashes the power of the unicorn as a new marshmallow

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 08:33

MINNEAPOLIS - For the first time in 10 years, Lucky Charms is introducing a new and permanent marshmallow -the magical unicorn!

The magically delicious brand tapped into the imagination and creativity of young minds to hand-select the newest charm and the decision was unanimous.

"Our goal is to not only create a cereal that families and cereal fans will love and enjoy but to inspire magical possibilities and help spark imagination and fun no matter what the age," said Josh DeWitt, marketing manager of Lucky Charms. "That's why, after 10 years, we decided to introduce a new charm with the help of the keepers of magic themselves - kids. They spoke, and after hearing their love for the magical unicorn, we listened."

From magical and lucky to cool and colorful, both boys and girls agreed that these mythical creatures had timeless magic that was the perfect fit for the only truly magical marshmallow cereal.

The new unicorn charm, which features hues of bright purples and blues, is the first-ever marshmallow to be inspired and created by kids.

With the entrance of the new magical charm, consumers will have to say goodbye to the hourglass marshmallow, which has been a staple in the magical line up for more than a decade. Lucky Charms marshmallow blend will continue to feature eight lucky charms including hearts, stars, horseshoes, clovers, blue moons, rainbows, red balloons and now magical unicorns.

In addition to great texture and delicious taste, Lucky Charms is made with whole grain as the first ingredient, fortified with 12 vitamins and minerals and is a good source of calcium.

Cereal-lovers can now enjoy a new magical mix of beloved, colorful Lucky Charms marshmallows with crunchy, whole grain oats. The new unicorn charms have already begun to appear in boxes of Original and Chocolate Lucky Charms cereals and will be available more widely at major grocery retailers and big-box stores in March.
