State wants botched execution suit thrown out
Other headlines: Northeast Ohio waits for LeBron Decision 2.0; Asphalt spill is big mess for Cleveland commuters

  • Northeast Ohio waits for Lebron Decision 2.0
  • Asphalt spill is big mess for Cleveland commuters
  • Nine arrested after deadly riot
  • Swim advisories lifted for two Cleveland beaches
  • State wants botched execution suit thrown out
    The state is asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family of a condemned inmate who repeatedly gasped and snorted during his January execution.

    The lawsuit alleges executed prisoner Dennis McGuire endured needless pain and suffering during his 26-minute execution on Jan. 16.

    The state argued in a court filing Tuesday that the lawsuit was improperly filed since McGuire's son isn't arguing any violations of his own constitutional rights.

    The state also says the lawsuit failed to list specific acts that members of the execution team committed that amounted to constitutional violations.

    The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction has denied McGuire suffered but has also changed its policy to boost the dosages of execution drugs used in the future.


    Northeast Ohio waits for LeBron Decision 2.0
    The frenzy surrounding the possible return of LeBron James to Northeast Ohio continues today as sportsfans await the decision 2.0.

    James is expected to announce where he’ll play next year sometime before his planned weekend trip to Brazil to watch the World Cup finals.

    NBA writer Chris Sheridan reported James’ will announce his decision on his website.

    The Cavs completed a three-team trade with the Nets and the Celtics that raises the team’s salary ceiling to $24 million which could be enough to make a bid for James’ homecoming.


    Asphalt spill is big mess for Cleveland commuters
    Road crews in Cleveland are completing cleanup of a huge mess on I-90 at Dead Man’s Curve.

    A truck carrying asphalt flipped over this morning spilling the mess across the eastbound lanes.

    Traffic remains slow through downtown.


    Nine arrested after deadly riot
    Police in northeast Ohio say nine people have been arrested in connection with an incident last week that left a 24-year-old man shot to death.

    Elyria police say Davion Strupe was shot in the back July 1 as he tried to flee a home after being dragged outside by three people.

    On Wednesday police announced the arrest of one man on charges that include murder, kidnapping and aggravated rioting. Eight others also were arrested and charged with aggravated rioting.

    Police say some of the people charged did not necessarily participate in the assault but did nothing to stop it, and even encouraged it.


    Swim advisories lifted for two Cleveland beaches
    Water quality warnings at two Cleveland area Lake Erie beaches have been lifted.

    Swimming advisories at Edgewater and Huntington beaches have been lifted. But health officials warn that bacteria in the waters at Villa Angela Beach remain above safe levels.

    Advisories remain in effect today at Mentor Headlands Beach and Main Street Beach in Vermilion.
