PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A man accused of being romantically involved with his teenage foster daughter was convicted Wednesday of conspiring with her to kill his wife.

Prosecutors told jurors that Kevin Knoefel, 43, showed his foster daughter Sabrina Zunich how to stab his wife and that he wanted her out of the picture but was afraid he'd lose custody of their 3-year-old daughter if they divorced.

A Lake County jury convicted Knoefel on six counts of sexual battery, three counts of complicity to aggravated murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated murder.

Knoefel, who plans to appeal, could face 25 years to life in prison.

MOKENA, Ill. (AP) — The five American troops killed in a friendly fire airstrike included an Illinois soldier who went to Afghanistan a month after his father died, an Ohio man who was engaged to be married, a California Green Beret who only deployed in January, and Washington state man who loved the outdoors.

Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said the five were killed Monday "during a security operation in southern Afghanistan." Officials said an airstrike was called in after the unit was ambushed by the Taliban. It was one of the deadliest friendly fire incidents in nearly 14 years of war.

Family representatives of Aaron Toppen of Illinois and Justin Helton of Ohio told The Associated Press that military members came to their relatives' doors in the middle of the night to deliver the news of the deaths.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed legislation Wednesday to allow tolls on a new bridge over the Ohio River that will replace the current overpass, which has been deemed "functionally obsolete."

The Republican signed the bill at Cincinnati's Paul Brown Stadium with the 51-year-old Brent Spence Bridge as his backdrop.

The bridge, which spans the Ohio River and connects Cincinnati to northern Kentucky along Interstate 75, carries about 172,000 vehicles a day. The reconstructed bridge would more than double that capacity and address safety and traffic concerns that have caused the National Bridge Inventory to label the Brent Spence as "functionally obsolete."
