Police identify Ohio bartender found dead near bar

MENTOR-ON-THE-LAKE, Ohio (AP) - Officials in northeast Ohio have identified a bartender who was found stabbed to death in a wooded area behind the bar where she worked.

Mentor-on-the-Lake police say the bartender, 49-year-old Ann McSween of Mentor, was the last one to leave Mario's Lakeway Lounge about 3 a.m. Friday. Police say she had restocked the bar and washed glasses before clocking out.

The bar owner called police about six hours later when an employee at a nearby boat yard found her body.

Police Chief Joseph S. Doran says McSween's death has been ruled a homicide, but the exact cause of death hasn't been released.

Authorities haven't named any suspects and no charges have been filed.
