DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman known for her love of cats was found in front of her home Friday fatally mauled by two neighborhood dogs.

Police say they found 57-year-old Klonda Richey unclothed, with her coat apparently torn off by the mixed-breed dogs.

Authorities said Richey's next-door neighbors, 28-year-old Andrew Nason and 23-year-old Julie Custer, were taken into custody and being held pending a formal charge of reckless homicide.

Results of an autopsy being conducted by the Montgomery County coroner weren't expected before Monday.

The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1bHkmVB) police were forced to kill the two male dogs after they charged officers.

The newspaper reported Richey, of Bruce Avenue, owned and cared for at least 20 cats. She worked as a part-time supply clerk at the county children's' services office.

Ohio governor delays inmate's upcoming execution

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Republican Gov. John Kasich on Friday granted an eight-month reprieve to a condemned killer following last month's execution of an inmate who repeatedly gasped in the state's longest lethal-injection procedure.

The ruling by Kasich delays until Nov. 19 the execution of Gregory Lott, who was sentenced to death for setting an 82-year-old man on fire during a break-in and leaving him to die.

Attorneys for Lott have sued in federal court to stop his execution, arguing the Ohio's new two-drug combination puts him at risk of unnecessary pain and suffering. Lott's attorneys also allege Ohio is breaking state and federal laws because it has obtained the drugs without a prescription.

The reprieve says only that "circumstances exist justifying the grant of a temporary reprieve."

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Police in southwestern Ohio say a woman who was apparently attacked by two large dogs has died.

Assistant Chief Bob Chabali (sha-BAH'-lee) of the Dayton police says officers responded to a call Friday morning about a person on a sidewalk. He says officers were forced to shoot the dogs when they advanced toward police.

Chabali says police were told that the dogs belonged to residents of a neighboring home. He says a man and a woman from that home were taken to the police station for questioning.

Chabali says police had received previous complaints about the dogs being at large at times. He says he is not sure of the dogs' breed.

Police have not released the name of the woman who died.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The owner of an Ohio apartment building accused of setting a blaze that killed two firefighters has been indicted on aggravated murder charges that could carry a potential death penalty if he's convicted.

A county grand jury in Toledo indicted Ray Abou-Arab on Friday in the Jan. 26 blaze. He also faces two counts of murder, eight counts of aggravated arson and one count of tampering with evidence.

A message seeking comment was left for his attorney. The 61-year-old suspect is being held on $5 million bond.

Court documents allege Abou-Arab was in a garage at the site of the fire near downtown Toledo just before an apartment resident said she saw the blaze break out.

Veteran firefighter Stephen Machcinski and rookie James Dickman were killed.

Ohio casino revenue decreases again for January

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Regulators say total revenue from Ohio's four voter-approved casinos dropped again in January, when two temporarily closed because of brutally cold winter weather.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission reported Friday that revenue totaled just under $59.7 million, down from $63.2 million in a lackluster December.

Cincinnati's casino, which is the newest, was the only one of the four to post a monthly revenue increase. Its revenue rose from $14.2 million in December to about $16.2 million last month.

Revenue at the remaining casinos in Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo was down compared with the previous month and the same time last year.

The steepest month-to-month drop was at the Toledo casino, which closed twice for a total of nearly 52 hours. Cleveland's casino closed for 37 hours because of the weather.
