COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — After seeing some spring-like temperatures over the weekend, a swath of southern Ohio is getting hit with another snow storm.

Many schools were closed or delayed Monday morning as snow was falling across the southern half of the state, mostly below Interstate 70.

Forecasters expected counties south of I-70 to get 2 to 4 inches of snow, while areas nearer to the Ohio River could see 3 to 5 inches.

Many counties were under winter weather warnings or advisories until mid-morning. Another winter storm is expected to roll into Ohio later this week.

IONIA, Mich. (AP) — A man serving life behind bars for murder in four 1993 deaths in Michigan has escaped from prison and apparently abducted a woman before she got away in Indiana, authorities said Monday.

Michael David Elliot, 40, was discovered missing about 9:30 p.m. Sunday from the Ionia Correctional Facility in mid-Michigan, Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan said in an email.

Elliot may have abducted a woman from Ionia using a knife or box cutter and drove to Elkhart, Ind., roughly 100 miles southwest of Ionia and near the Indiana-Michigan state line, where they stopped for gas. The woman got away at the gas station and call police, Marlan said.

Police made contact with the woman about 11:50 p.m. Sunday. Elliot left the gas station and was at large Monday morning, Marlan said.

United Airlines drops Cleveland as hub airport

WASHINGTON (AP) — United Airlines said Saturday it will drop its money-losing hub in Cleveland, slashing its daily flights and eliminating 470 jobs.

The company's CEO Jeff Smisek announced in a letter to employees that the airline will no longer use Cleveland to connect fliers coming from other airports around the country. As a result, United's daily departures from the city will fall from 199 currently to 72 by June.

"Our hub in Cleveland hasn't been profitable for over a decade, and has generated tens of millions of dollars of annual losses in recent years," Smisek states. "We simply cannot continue to bear these losses."

United said in November that it aims to cut $2 billion in annual costs in the coming year by shifting flights, making workers more productive, and improving its maintenance procedures.

Similar cutbacks have affected many other small hubs in cities such as Memphis, Cincinnati and Salt Lake City amid a wave of airline mergers over the last five years.

OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — It's a big first weekend for the new $46 million student center at Miami University of Ohio.

The 203,000-square-foot Armstrong Student Center opened Monday. It has banquet rooms and a technology-free meditation center and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.

The three-floor center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

According to the Dayton Daily News (bit.ly/1hIvhyW), many of the ideas for the center came from students.

Two-thirds of the project was financed by more than 11,000 donors. Students paid for part with a $115 per semester fee.

The center is a combination of new construction and retrofitting. It takes the place of the former ROTC building as well as some other facilities.

BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Police in western Michigan are investigating a student's shooting at an off-campus apartment complex near Ferris State University.

Officials at the college in Big Rapids, about 50 miles north of Grand Rapids, canceled classes, basketball games and other sporting events Saturday in the hours after the 4:15 a.m. shooting at the Venlo Place apartments.

The university said on its website Saturday afternoon that police searched two apartments on the campus looking for the person believed to have shot the student, but they turned up nothing.

The victim, whose name and condition were not released, was transferred to a Grand Rapids hospital. His wounds were not believed to be life-threatening.

The school canceled men and women's basketball games against Saginaw Valley State University and a high school hockey game.
