YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - The former senior official of a northeast Ohio wastewater company charged with violating the federal Clean Water Act goes on trial April 8.

The Youngstown Vindicator reports 62-year-old Ben Lupo, of Poland, and Hardrock Excavating LLC have a final pre-trial conference scheduled with U.S. District Judge Donald C. Nugent on March 24. Authorities allege Lupo ordered an employee to repeatedly dump gas-drilling wastewater intended for an injection well into a storm sewer. Lupo and the company have pleaded not guilty. The employee, 34-year-old Michael P. Guesman, of Cortland, entered a guilty plea in August. His written plea agreement states Lupo asked him to dump brine and drilling mud from 20,000-gallon storage tanks down a storm drain on 24 nights beginning Dec. 12, 2012.

Guesman will be sentenced March 20.

Ohio casino revenue down in January

Written by

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Regulators say total revenue from Ohio's four voter-approved casinos dropped again in January, when two temporarily closed because of brutally cold winter weather.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission reported Friday that revenue totaled just under $59.7 million, down from $63.2 million in a lackluster December. Cincinnati's casino, which is the newest, was the only one of the four to post a monthly revenue increase. Its revenue rose from $14.2 million in December to about $16.2 million last month. Revenue at the remaining casinos in Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo was down compared with the previous month and the same time last year.

The steepest month-to-month drop was at the Toledo casino, which closed twice for a total of nearly 52 hours. Cleveland's casino closed for 37 hours because of the weather.

Ohio execution date postponed by Gov. Kasich

Written by

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich has issued a reprieve for a condemned killer scheduled to die next month following the recent extended execution of an inmate who repeatedly gasped during the procedure.

The decision delays the March 19 execution of Gregory Lott, who was sentenced to death for setting an East Cleveland man on fire in 1986 and leaving him to die. Lott's new execution date is Nov. 19. Kasich's reprieve follows an uproar over the Jan. 16 execution of Dennis McGuire. McGuire gasped and snorted for several minutes during his 26-minute execution, the longest in state history. Lott has sued in federal court to stop his execution, arguing that the two-drug method Ohio switched to creates risk of a cruel and inhumane death.

McGuire's family also sued the state.

Missing Ohio college student found dead

Written by

GRANVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a central Ohio college student has been found dead less than 24 hours after being reported missing.

The Newark Advocate reports that Granville Police Sgt. Keith Blackledge says the body of Denison University senior David Hallman was found about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. The university said the 21-year-old from Erie, Pa., had been missing since about 2 a.m. Saturday, and was found about a half-mile from Brew's Cafe, where he was last seen.

The newspaper reported that Blackledge said Hallman was found wearing regular clothing, not a heavy coat, and probably died of exposure. He says Hallman might have been disoriented. Blackledge says no foul play was expected, and that the state's Bureau of Criminal Investigation is looking into the case.

The university, about 40 miles northeast of Columbus, says the "Denison family will come together to mourn the loss of David."
