Pair of election bills head to Ohio governor

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's Democratic Party chairman says he expects the organization to file a federal lawsuit over an absentee-ballot measure passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature.

State Rep. Chris Redfern, the party's chairman, says Democrats believe the measure violates the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal protection, along with the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

The bill would let the secretary of state mail unsolicited applications for general elections and only if the Legislature directed the money for it. Other public officials would be banned from sending the unsolicited applications. Ohio's larger, urban counties traditionally have sent voters such applications.

Republican backers say the change helps achieve consistency across the swing state.

The measure passed Wednesday along with a separate bill to trim early voting. Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) is expected to sign them.

BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (AP) — Police investigating an Ohio hit-and-run crash that killed a U.S. Marine from Virginia are hoping to identify and interview three drivers who were in the area and were captured on surveillance video.

A vehicle struck 34-four-year-old Monica Plank of Stafford, Va., on Sunday shortly after midnight as she walked from a restaurant in Bellefontaine (behl-FOWN'-tihn), northwest of Columbus.

The Bellefontaine Examiner (http://bit.ly/Mg5dAw ) reports video shows two cars and a sport utility vehicle passing near where Plank was hit.

Police Chief Brandon Standley says investigators hope those drivers come forward because they may have seen something that could help resolve the case.

A funeral is scheduled Saturday in West Liberty for Plank, who was married to a fellow Marine gunnery sergeant. They were in Bellefontaine to visit family.

Firm unhappy Ohio using its drugs for execution

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's most recent batches of lethal injection drugs were produced by a company that wants states to stop using them for capital punishment, records show.

Lake Forest, Ill.-based Hospira Inc. says it manufactures the drugs, the sedative midazolam and the painkiller hydromophone, to enhance and save the lives of patients it helps treat. The company says it objects to their use in capital punishment.

Hospira's position adds to the state's difficulties obtaining drugs to put condemned inmates to death at a time when several other states, including Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas, face similar challenges obtaining drugs.

Other drug makers have prohibited the use of their drugs in executions, and states are running out of options.

Ohio purchased the Hospira-made drugs in 2012 and 2013 from San Francisco-based drug distributor McKesson, according to invoices and packing slips obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request.
