Man arrested in death of brother

MARION, Ohio (AP) — Police say a man has been arrested in the death of his brother, who was found stabbed in the neck at a home in Marion County.

Forty-nine-year-old Marvin Brown died Saturday night at a hospital after emergency responders found him bleeding at a home in Marion. Police say they found his brother, 54-year-old James Brown, at a nearby apartment and arrested him on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter.

It wasn’t clear whether James Brown has an attorney. The case wasn’t listed in the local court’s online records early Monday.

Police haven’t released details about a possible motive or the circumstances of the stabbing, which remains under investigation.

Son charged in mother’s stabbing death

STOW, Ohio (AP) — Police have arrested a 22-year-old man and charged him with murder after his mother was found stabbed to death in Ohio.

Authorities were called to a Stow home around 6:30 p.m. Saturday after the man called 911 to report the death of Susan Reeves. First responders found the woman, reported to be in her 50s, with multiple stab wounds in her bed.

Police say the man was “distraught” Saturday, and he was released after questioning. Authorities say the man turned himself in to police Sunday.

The man is now facing a charge of aggravated murder. Police have not released a possible motive.

Stow police Lt. Anne Stirm says the man will be arraigned in court Monday.

Blaze kills 5 in Fostoria

FOSTORIA, Ohio (AP) — A 19-year-old man training to be a firefighter is among five family members who died in an Ohio fire last week.

The assistant chief with the Bascom Joint Fire District says Austin Rainey was set to take a test next month to become a firefighter.

A funeral home says Rainey’s parents and two younger siblings also died in the farmhouse fire Thursday just outside Fostoria. They’ve been identified as 45-year-old James Rainey, 41-year-old Jodi Depinet-Rainey, 15-year-old Cody Rainey and 7-year-old Jessica Rainey.

Investigators haven’t announced what caused the fire, which was reported when someone inside called 911.

Authorities say the fire was so intense that the first firefighters to arrive could not get inside to save the victims.

Bicyclist run over by firetruck sues Dayton

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio college student who was run over by a firetruck while riding a bicycle is suing the city of Dayton.

The Dayton Daily News reports that Quinton Kane suffered serious injuries in the collision two years ago. The University of Dayton student was riding in a bike lane when the firetruck making a non-emergency run didn’t yield and struck him while turning into a parking lot.

Dayton fire officials said at the time that there were three firefighters and one fire lieutenant aboard the emergency vehicle.

The lawsuit filed this month seeks at least $25,000.

A message seeking comment on the lawsuit was left Monday for a city spokeswoman.

Group rescues deer stuck in bucket

CINCINNATI (AP) — A deer that got its head trapped in an orange plastic pumpkin bucket is free after residents in suburban Cincinnati spent the weekend tracking it.

WCPO-TV reports the Anderson Township Family Pet Center got calls over four days from residents concerned about the deer with the bucket stuck over its nose.

Daryl Meyerrenke at the pet center warned that it would be dangerous for neighbors to try to rescue the deer, but he says they were determined to help the animal and spent hours following it through wooded areas. Eventually, the group using animal catch poles was able to encircle the deer, and Meyerrenke’s son freed it from the bucket.

Meyerrenke says the animal immediately went to graze and drink water at a creek.
