Suspicious package near Kings Island

A suspicious package gave police a scare last night. Authorities found the package around 9:00 p.m. at the Shell gas station on Kings Mills Road near King's Island and Interstate 71. The bomb squad determined the package was nothing dangerous and Kings Mills road was opened back up around 1:00 a.m.


New Charges filed in woman in hot attic case

Police have issued new charges against two people for allegedly locking a woman in a hot attic for three days without any water. Shawn Lloyd, 25, and his girlfriend, Adrienna Daniels, 28, are now charged with Abduction after police found Adrienna's mother, Mary Daniels, locked in an attic in the 1600 block of Dewey Ave. Lloyd is also charged with unlawful restraint and possession of illegal drug paraphernalia.



Pickens gets death penalty

Judge Steve Martin issued 20-year old Mark Pickens the death penalty Wednesday after Pickens was convicted of killing 19-year old Noelle Washington, her 9-month-old son, and a 3-year old girl she was babysitting. Investigators believe Pickens killed Washington because she had reported to police that he raped her. All three victims were shot execution style.





Leprechauns in Boulder Colorado

Police in Boulder, Colorado responded to a call Wednesday complaining that a man dressed as a leprechaun was seen leaping between cars in a supermarket parking lot. Eye witnesses said the leprechaun was pretending to shoot at people with his fingers and may have even flipped off some folks. A police official says it's the first time Boulder police have received a complaint about a leprechaun.





Live at Fountain Square

Frank Marzullo will be live on fountain square as we continue Summer Music on the Square. FOX19 will feature "Lot 32" a local band younger than most of the acts that we've featured during this concert series who definitely deserve some attention. These guys can really rock!
