NASHPORT, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man was arrested in the abduction and slaying of a pizza delivery driver whose body was found at a state park, authorities said Friday.

Adam Charles Burris, 32, has not been charged in the death of the delivery worker. But the Cambridge man is being held on a warrant for unrelated domestic violence charges, Guernsey County Sheriff Michael McCauley told reporters at a news conference. No attorney information was available for Burris.

McCauley said Burris is believed to have abducted and killed 26-year-old Kayla Thompson, who did not return from a delivery run on Thursday.

A deputy went to her last delivery address, where a woman told the officer that she had seen her boyfriend, Burris, in the delivery driver's vehicle.

Authorities said they used Burris' cellphone to track and stop him on Interstate 70, where he was taken into custody.

Ohio's three largest cities seek political conventions

CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio's three largest cities all have hopes of landing a Democratic or Republican national convention in 2016.

Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati officials all figure that Ohio's importance as a presidential swing state will help their cause. All three say they have good facilities, hotel space and transportation links for hosting such large conventions.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1gZOwH9 ) reports that the capital of Columbus has gotten an early jump, and Cincinnati is a latecomer in the competition.

Columbus officials say Nationwide Arena could host the convention, with plenty of convention facilities and hotels nearby.

Ohio's Democratic Party and Republican Party leaders don't agree on much, but both say they'd like to see the state host their conventions.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A Kalamazoo woman spent Christmas Day rescuing tropical parrots from a mid-Michigan home and breeding facility that lost power during last weekend's ice storm.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/JhdJOP ) Thursday that bird rescuer Theresa Barylak has transported about 20 parrots to her operation known as Avian Haven. The Lansing home and breeding facility owned by Michelle and Carey Feazel had lost power, and two birds died of exposure to the cold.

Barylak says she hopes the birds will survive and seeks volunteers and cleaning supplies as she prepares appropriate space for them within her sanctuary.

CINCINNATI (AP) — A 1-year-old who was badly burned in a house fire the day before Christmas remains in critical condition at a Cincinnati hospital.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1btl2cJ ) reports that the fire on Tuesday morning in West Price Hill burned about 80 percent of the toddler's body.

The boy was being treated Friday at Shriners Hospital for Children.

Firefighters arriving at the two-family home found the baby's mother holding her unresponsive child and heavy fire on the first floor of the building.

Everyone was able to get out safely, although the baby's father burned his foot while rescuing the baby from his crib, and had to be treated at a hospital.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Ohio Amish argue against guardian in chemo case

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A court was wrong to appoint a guardian to make medical decisions for an Amish girl whose parents stopped her chemotherapy against doctors' wishes, and the guardian should be allowed to resign, the family's attorney said in court filings this week.

The lawyer for Sarah Hershberger's family argued for a reversal of the appointment in a filing in their state court appeal.

Ohio's guardianship statutes appear to let courts substitute their judgment for that of suitable parents while ignoring the parents' "moral and constitutional interests," Maurice Thompson wrote in his filing with the Ninth District Court of Appeals in Akron. The court should take a narrower view that limits such second-guessing and is consistent with constitutional safeguards of their rights, he wrote.

To do that, the court must hold "that the decisions of suitable parents may not be attacked by anyone anytime in an Ohio Probate Court, and that these careful and gut-wrenching life and death decisions cannot be second-guessed and overruled where the parents are suitable, and simply seek to try a less invasive treatment first," wrote Thompson, who leads the libertarian 1851 Center for Constitutional Law in Ohio.
