The Ohio Supreme Court has upheld the convictions and death sentences for Richard Beasley, the Akron man who posted fake employment ads to Craigslist, luring four men to a rural property in southeastern Ohio, killing three and attempting to kill the fourth.

Medina County has agreed to issue construction permits for the NEXUS natural gas pipeline, in exchange for the pipeline company agreeing to put up $6.5 million dollars in bonds, that will cover the county for road and bridge repairs.
Medina Gazette reporting county officials say they'll only need to dip into that bond fund, if damage caused by heavy pipeline trucks and machinery isn't done within 48 hours of when they're first reported.
Construction on the pipeline, which will run from Ohio up to Canada, hasn't started in Medina County yet, though it has started on a compressor station in Guilford Township.
