DETROIT (AP) — An annual festival headlined by the rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse will be held in Ohio this year.

The Detroit-based duo was looking for a new venue for its Gathering of the Juggalos event after sites in Missouri and Illinois fell through.

Psychopathic Records is Insane Clown Posse's promoter and confirms the group will host its yearly festival at the Legend Valley Concert Venue in Thornville, Ohio, July 23-26.

Past Gathering of the Juggalos events have been marred by unruliness, drug use, fights and arrests.

On its website, the group calls the festival "four days of uninhibited enjoyment" and "the greatest show and family reunion of earth."

Court upholds conviction in Ohio septic tank case

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio court has rejected the appeal of a southeast Ohio man who was convicted of killing his daughter-in-law, who was found strangled at the bottom of a septic tank in 2011.

Ohio's Fourth District Court of Appeals upheld William Inman's aggravated murder conviction and life prison sentence.

The Athens Messenger (http://bit.ly/1lEyvZe ) reports the court rejected arguments that the jury didn't get to hear evidence that would have shown Inman's son, William Inman II, was solely responsible for the slaying of Summer Cook Inman.

Summer Inman was abducted in Logan in Hocking County, strangled with a zip tie and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church. William Inman II and his mother, Sandra Inman, also were convicted in the slaying and sentenced to life in prison.

Libertarians await word on making Ohio's ballot

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Two Libertarian candidates for statewide office in Ohio are awaiting word from the state elections chief on whether they'll make the May 6 primary ballot.

Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted has said he'll rule Friday on separate protests filed against gubernatorial candidate Charlie Earl and attorney general candidate Steven Linnabary.

Earl has the potential to draw votes from Republican Gov. John Kasich as the governor faces a likely challenge from Democrat Ed FitzGerald this fall.

The protest seeking to disqualify Earl from the primary ballot was registered on behalf of Tyler King, a Libertarian voter. King's attorney claims Earl should be disqualified and that Democrats provided him help.

Earl's attorney has called the challenge an extension of Republican efforts to exclude third parties from Ohio's ballot.

Michigan: Failure to reset alarms key to escape

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A convicted quadruple killer escaped from a Michigan prison for 24 hours last month primarily because guards didn't properly operate the motion-detector alarms at a gate the inmate pried open with scissors and a belt buckle, investigators concluded Thursday.

A control center officer failed to reset two alarms for 5½ hours after they were tested, and a supervisor who noticed the problem left when her shift was over without notifying others to check the gate, according to a report by the state Corrections Department's internal affairs division.

If the alarms had been properly reactivated, the investigation found, Michael Elliot could have been detected in the vicinity of a vehicle gate during his nearly three-hour escape Feb. 2. Investigators deemed it a "critical error" that played a "major role."

Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan said the motion detectors previously have been tripped by birds and squirrels, possibly leading guards to sometimes ignore the alarms, although in this case, the alarms weren't properly set.
