FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Fort Wayne will receive $33 million in federal funding for future development.

Mayor Tom Henry announced Wednesday the funding will come from the Treasury Department's New Markets Tax Credits, which are intended to encourage economic development in low-income areas. The city will sell the tax credits to investors who can use them against their federal income taxes.

WOWO-AM and The News-Sentinel report the city used $15 million in New Markets Tax Credits in 2008 to close a financing gap for The Harrison mixed-used development in downtown Fort Wayne.

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a 17-year-old Ohio boy in the April shooting of a standout high school football player.

The teen is charged with murder in the Easter morning slaying of 17-year-old Jeff Wellington at a Springfield apartment complex.

The suspect was captured after a search that stretched for more than two weeks after the April 20 incident. A judge on May 29 ruled the boy can be tried as an adult and his case could be presented to a grand jury.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1q3in5I ) reports that he was indicted by the Clark County grand jury Monday.

At a probable cause hearing, three witnesses testified that they were in the parking lot of the apartment complex and saw the suspect pull the trigger.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio is shielding interviews with about 20 prison employees involved in the fitful January execution of an inmate who repeatedly gasped and snorted as he was put to death with a never-tried drug method.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction says lawyers with the Attorney General's Office interviewed the employees after the Jan. 16 execution of Dennis McGuire.

The agency denied a request by The Associated Press for the interviews earlier this week, saying they were protected by attorney-client privilege and because they constitute trial preparation records.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The former chief financial officer for a northeast Ohio telemarketing company is expected to testify for a second day against his former boss in a federal trial about illegal campaign contributions.

Michael Giorgio ('JOR-jee-o) is testifying Wednesday in Cleveland about helping Ben Suarez of Suarez Corporation Industries in North Canton collect donations from employees and Suarez family members for the 2012 campaigns of U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci and the failed U.S. Senate bid of Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel.

Those who donated were quickly reimbursed by the company, a violation of federal campaign laws.

Giorgio was originally indicted along with Suarez. Giorgio pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and other charges last month and agreed to testify against Suarez in return for a reduced prison sentence.
