News Minute: Here is the latest Ohio news from The Associated Press at 3:40 p.m. EDT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A woman who suffered a brain injury in a deadly ride accident at the Ohio State Fair would get nearly $1.8 million in a proposed settlement of her claims against the ride operator and companies that inspected it. The Fire Ball ride broke apart last July, killing one person and injuring seven, including 18-year-old Jennifer Lambert. WBNS-TV reports court documents say Lambert remains in a care facility, with medical expenses that have totaled $455,000. Her settlement would need court approval.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Shipwreck hunters say they've discovered the remains of a steamer that sank in Lake Erie over a century ago and left eight people dead. The National Museum of the Great Lakes says the wreck is several miles off the Ohio shore near Lorain, about 30 miles west of Cleveland. Rob Ruetschle is a member of the Cleveland Underwater Explorers and first located the wreck last summer. He and others later confirmed the wreckage is from a steam barge called the Margaret Olwill that went down in 1899.

BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio school superintendent convicted of sexual contact with a young girl has been sentenced to more than four years in prison. Patrick O'Donnell was sentenced Monday to 4 1/2 years on a gross sexual imposition count in Bellefontaine (behl-FOWN'-tihn), roughly 60 miles (97 kilometers) northwest of Columbus. The former Indian Lakes Schools superintendent last month entered an Alford plea meaning he doesn't admit to the charge but acknowledges there's enough evidence to convict him.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Jurors are considering whether the man convicted in the kidnapping, rape and killing of an Ohio State University student should be sentenced to death. Thirty-year-old Brian Golsby was found guilty last week in the 2017 death of 21-year-old Reagan Tokes. Golsby apologized in court and asked jurors for mercy. His lawyers argue that his traumatic and difficult childhood shaped his actions and that his life should be spared.
