KIRKERSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Four county workers in Ohio have been suspended for the early release of a domestic violence suspect who later killed three people, including a small town police chief. The suspensions announced Friday come after a review of how Thomas Hartless got out of jail a month before the shootings on May 12. The Licking County Municipal Court says the probation department employees have been suspended without pay.

CINCINNATI (AP) - The jury in the murder retrial of a white Ohio police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black motorist will not see the officer's undershirt depicting a Confederate battle flag, because a judge ruled Friday that the garment is too prejudicial. Prosecutors said the T-shirt Tensing wore under his uniform the day of Samuel DuBose's death was relevant because it was undamaged, countering Tensing's claim he was getting dragged by DuBose's car as he tried to drive away from a traffic stop in 2015.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A second contender for statewide office in Ohio has retained a local campaign fund that's not subject to state contribution limits. State records reviewed by The Associated Press on Friday showed that Republican Franklin County Auditor Clarence Mingo, a candidate for state treasurer, has not filed paperwork to close down his uncapped auditor's fund and to convert it into a campaign fund for statewide office.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - As Air Force officials investigate allegations that inspectors were invited to view the remains of astronaut and former U.S. Sen. John Glenn at Dover Air Force Base, a military mortuary chief said Friday that Glenn's remains were treated with "impeccable care." William Zwicharowski told The Associated Press that Glenn was not disrespected in any way, and that he is proud of the job he and his staff did in caring for Glenn's remains.
