Matthew Warmus, the 25-year-old accused of shooting and killing David Williams on April 7 in a parking lot on E. 9th, has been found guilty by a Cuyahoga County jury.

After three days of deliberation, some of which was loud and contentious enough to be heard outside the jury room, the twelve jurors decided that Warmus did not act in self defense when he shot Williams.

Judge Daniel Gaul sentenced Warmus to 15 years to life in prison.

Details from the Plain Dealer's coverage after the jump.

Fail: Candidates Urge You to Vote on November 4th

Posted By on Thu, Oct 28, 2010 at 12:56 PM


Typos and grammatical errors on campaign material aren't anything new, but rarely are the mistakes as egregious as the ones on a flier distributed by Zack Milkovich, an Ohio State House candidate, and Frank Comunale, a candidate for Ohio State Senate.

Election day, of course, is November 2, not November 4. And early voting began September 28, not October 4.

The Akron Beacon Journal breaks down some other atrocious campaign typos and mistakes in this article.

Dude, wheres yout shirt? And your pants?
  • "Dude, where's yout shirt? And your pants?"

Matthew Trakas was arrested for waving at the neighborhood kids — waving, but not with his hands.

According to the Chronicle-Telegraph
, the 41 year-old Elyria man had a habit of getting down to buck and standing before his full-length glass front door while the kids walked home from school. Two girls, 14 and 15, saw his display and ran to tell their friends. Don't worry about it, they were told, the guy goes it all the time.

Man Asks Cops For His Pot Back, They Politely Decline

Posted By on Thu, Oct 28, 2010 at 10:40 AM


A man in Chagrin Falls encountered a double dose of buzzkill recently when a neighbor and the cops joined forces to put a damper on his recreational ganja use.

The trouble started when an elderly neighbor called police because the suspect had been “continually stinking up the building with the skunk-like smell of marijuana.”

Well, that's not neighborly at all. If a man can't get high in the privacy of his own home without the goody-goody grandpa next door snitching, where can he get high?

The cops came and when the suspect opened the door a "plume of marijuana smoke" floated out of the apartment.

Now we all know who you are.
  • Now we all know who you are.

19 Action News has the story of Marc Garofoli, a bailiff for Cuyahoga County Probate Judge Anthony Russo, and his arrest for DUI last night.

It's your run-of-the-mill DUI case for the most part: a cop spotted Garofoli weaving and speeding on I-480, pulled him over, and went through the field sobriety test.

The hilarious part? Garofoli pulling the "Do you know who I am?" routine because he works for a judge.

His lame attempt to get out of the arrest after the jump.

Fluffy, the world's longest snake according to Guinness World Records, died Tuesday at the Columbus Zoo, where she lived since 2007.

She was 24-feet long, 300-pound, 18-year-old reticulated python.
