Time of death was 10:44 a.m. The 58-year-old Van Hook was sentenced to die for killing David Self in Cincinnati.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - After experiencing its best days in the first half of the 20th century, Dayton, Ohio, is reinventing itself with impressive results. Minor-league baseball, a riverside park and a cluster of craft beer pubs are helping revitalize a downtown that had become frayed around the edges. Part of the revitalization has been the marketing of the Dayton Aviation Trail, which includes historic sites relating to city natives Wilbur and Orville Wright, as well as the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

CINCINNATI (AP) - An Ohio city attorney says the state law that police cited in porn star Stormy Daniels' arrest at a strip club should not be enforced. Columbus city attorney Zach Klein wrote Wednesday in a memo to the city's police chief that future charges filed under that law will not be prosecuted, a decision applauded by Daniels' lawyer. Daniels says she had sex with Donald Trump before he became president, something Trump denies.
