Ohio woman killed Chihuahua in oven because she believed ex-boyfriend was inside pet,

An Ohio woman was arrested after she allegedly killed a Chihuahua by cooking the dog in an oven because she believed her ex-boyfriend was inside the pet, police said.

Noelle Georgia Moor, 28, was charged with first-degree animal abuse in the 7-year-old dog’s death, The Oregonian reported. A person close to Moor called police Tuesday after the dog was placed in the oven.

“The smell of burnt hair and flesh was still in the air,” a probable cause affidavit read.

Moor told police she had placed the dog in the oven because she believed her ex-boyfriend’s spirit was in the animal, records showed.

Moor reportedly suffers from mental health issues. Mental health professions had been in contact with the 28-year-old in the past month because of several disturbances, according to The Daily Astorian.

Moor was arrested while she was at Columbia Memorial Hospital after Tuesday’s incident.

Bruce Wayne finally stops eating Chipotle after 500 straight days

TIFFIN, Ohio — An Ohio man who ate Chipotle every day for the past 500 days says he is finally ready to eat something new.

Bruce Wayne ended his streak Wednesday after grabbing a meal at the Tiffin Chipotle branch.

Wayne ended his streak in style, the Findlay Courier reports, by donning a Batsuit and ordering mini quesadillas because “leather isn’t very forgiving.”

Wayne broke the record for the most consecutive meals at the Mexican fast food restaurant in December at 426 days. Chipotle pledged a $4,260 donation to Seneca-based Financial Assistance for Cancer Treatment, in honor of the $10 a day average Wayne spent over the 426 days.

In a post on his Instagram Tuesday, Wayne says “it isn’t just the end of one adventure; it’s the start of a new one.”

Babysitter gets prison for boy’s Benadryl death

COLUMBUS, Ohio — An Ohio babysitter who authorities say gave a fatal dose of Benadryl to an 8-month-old boy has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Forty-five-year-old Lori Conley was sentenced Tuesday in the 2016 death of Haddix Mulkey. She previously pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, child endangering and tampering with evidence.

Prosecutors say Conley gave Haddix an adult dose of Benadryl to get him to sleep while baby-sitting at her suburban Columbus home. She called 911 after finding the boy unresponsive.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Conley said that she didn’t intend to harm Haddix and that it was the only time she used the over-the-counter allergy medication to calm an infant. But Franklin County Judge Julie Lynch said she didn’t believe it was the first time Conley had tried that tactic.

Mom went to work and left baby to die in hot car: cops

MASON, Ohio — A baby girl who was found dead in a car parked in a Procter & Gamble employee parking lot in Ohio was left there by her mother while she was at work, authorities said Wednesday night.

The 15-month-old was found around 5 p.m. Wednesday in the P&G parking lot in Mason, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Cincinnati, said Doyle Burke, the chief investigator for the Warren County Coroner’s Office.

Burke said it appears the mother, who is a P&G employee, left the baby unattended in her car seat all day and called 911 when she found the child.

While an official cause of death has not yet been determined, investigators believe it was the result of high temperatures inside the vehicle. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

“Even though it wasn’t sweltering hot today, it’s obviously gonna be hotter in the car,” Burke said. “And certainly a 15-month-old is more susceptible to something like this than an adult.”

Investigators said it was unclear if the mother would face any charges. They have not released her name.

“We are aware of a tragic accident that took place on the campus of P&G’s Mason Business Center earlier today,” Cincinnati-based consumer products giant P&G said in a statement Wednesday night. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the affected family. We are providing our full support to both the family and local officials.”

While the investigation is ongoing, Burke said the case should serve as a warning to other parents.

“Well certainly anytime something like this happens that’s preventable, it’s a wake-up call to anyone that has children,” Burke said. “Just be careful.”

Judge shot in Ohio was overseeing gunman’s lawsuit

The Ohio judge shot outside of a local courthouse Monday morning was overseeing a wrongful-death case brought by his suspected shooter.

Nathaniel Richmond ambushed Judge Joseph J. Bruzzese Jr. outside of the Jefferson County Courthouse in Steubenville around 8 a.m. and was shot dead by a probation officer.

Richmond is also the father of Ma’lik Richmond – one of two then-football star teens found guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl after a booze-fueled party in 2012.

Bruzzese, who also was armed, returned fire, an official said, and he was rushed to a Pittsburgh-area hospital by helicopter. He is believed to be in stable condition.

“Thank God he’s not a good shot,” Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said Monday morning, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Police took another person into custody. Richmond filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the Jefferson County Metropolitan Housing Authority in April, and Bruzzese was overseeing the case, court records show.

The housing authority was asking Bruzzese to dismiss Richmond’s punitive damages claims in a hearing set for Aug. 28.

The judge did not oversee the trial for the Aug. 11, 2012 Steubenville High School rape case that gained national attention — but he did ask that an outside judge be appointed to convene the grand jury due to unproven allegations of a cover-up.

Ma’lik Richmond, who was 16 at the time of the incident, served nearly 10 months of a year-long sentence in juvenile detention after being convicted of raping a minor in March 2013.

Recently, he was given the opportunity to become a member of the football team at Youngstown State University, prompting backlash.

The Ohio university said that Richmond would not be playing in games for the fall 2017 season, but would remain on the team as a practice player.

The other student who was convicted in the rape case along with Richmond is Trent Mays.

Police chief: Someone used my business card to snort heroin

An Ohio police chief learned the hard way that you can’t save someone who doesn’t want saving — when he discovered that a woman used his business card to snort heroin, just days after he tried to get her help.

Canal Fulton Police Chief Douglas Swartz shared the tragic story on Facebook early Monday, along with a plea for people to stay away from drugs.

“There is a message I would like to spread to everyone today,” Swartz said. “Heroin users are walking amongst us in the thousands and dropping like flies. Libraries, public bathrooms, parks, in vehicles at intersections, and even sidewalks are common scenes where heroin addicts are collapsing the very second after ingesting this drug.”

According to police, the 47-year-old woman had been using the Chief Swartz’ business card to snort heroin at her home in Canal Fulton on Sunday.

She was later “found by a household member in her room passed out,” cops said.

“She was standing with both feet on the ground and leaning over the bed, however, from her waist up she was not touching the bed,” the member described to the officers.

After finding the woman, Swartz said the individual noticed “white powder” spilled on the counter in the bathroom, along with other paraphernalia.

According to the chief, he had been at her residence “just days earlier” — notifying the homeowner to contact another police agency in regards to the woman’s drug use.“Thinking he was doing a good thing, he scooped up the powder with his bare hands, along with the paraphernalia, and transported her and the evidence to the Canal Fulton Police station where she was checked out,” Swartz explained, adding that the woman “admitted to Police officers that she did snort heroin.”

Swartz even wrote his contact info on the back of the business card, to ensure that she got the right help.

“It was this business card that was rolled up and used for the purposes of ingesting the heroin that he collected from the scene and brought to the police station,” Swartz said. “It is very important NOT to do what this household member did today, and that is touch this drug. Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and just a quarter of a milligram, which is just a few granules, can kill you. Carfentanil, which has reared its ugly head in Canal Fulton a few times, is much, much worse.”

Swartz recalled an incident where a local cop was exposed to the drug and almost died after he wiped some powder off his uniform with his bare hands.

“Luckily he was surrounded by fellow officers who administered naloxone and saved his life,” Swartz said.

Due to a new Ohio law, authorities did not arrest the woman — and instead ordered her to seek treatment in lieu of arrest. She will be charged, though, with felony drug possession, should she not comply within 30 days.

“We are in a bad situation in America today as 52,000 of us have lost our lives to a drug overdose in 2015 alone,” Swartz said. “It is reported that just one specific county in Ohio has THOUSANDS of children in foster care homes or placed in other agencies with parents who fell victim of the heroin addiction and no longer alive today to help guide the children into adulthood. Freezer trucks are being mobilized and brought into County Morgues to house the thousands of fatal overdoses.

“Doesn’t this sound like something in the future?” the chief added. “An epidemic of some sort brought about by terrorist? Well sadly, it is not the future’s fault and not the terrorist. It is today, here and now, and most of it is our own poor decisions that have brought us to this point. Canal Fulton, you are no stranger either. Many overdoses have occurred here in our quaint little city and possibly many more to come.”

Swartz finished his post by urging residents to reach out to their local rehab and treatment centers for help.

“Thank you for reading and sharing and most importantly….for caring,” he said.

Woman shot at gender reveal party lied about pregnancy: cops

A woman who claimed she lost her unborn child during a shooting at an Ohio gender reveal party earlier this month wasn’t pregnant at the time, police revealed Monday.

Colerain police said the woman, Cheyanne Willis, 21, had lied about her pregnancy, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported. It’s unclear why she hosted the July 8 gender reveal party — a celebration where an expecting mother finds out the sex of her child.

“All we have at this point is speculation,” Colerain Police Chief Mark Denney said.

Two men opened fire at the Cincinnati-area party, killing one woman, identified as Autum Garrett, 22, and injuring eight other people, including three children.

Willis told Fox 19 she lost her child, a boy, after being shot in the leg.

The police department released a statement Monday saying the false information has hampered its investigation into the deadly shooting.

“Hours and days have been wasted following leads known to be lies when they were provided to our officers. From the very beginning of this investigation, we have met significant resistance that is uncommon from victims of crime wanting a resolution,” the statement said.

Police are still looking for the gunmen, who have not been identified. An unloaded gun was discovered in the front yard of the single-story home.

An anonymous donor has offered a $10,000 reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest.
