COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The family of cartoonist Chester Gould has donated a collection of Gould's original Dick Tracy comic strips and related materials to a cartoon library and museum in Ohio

Gould died in 1985. He wrote and drew the Dick Tracy newspaper comic strips from 1931 until retiring in 1977. His daughter and two grandchildren gave a collection of his work to the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State University.

Ohio State says the collection consists of more than 850 original Dick Tracy comic strips along with 64 original Sunday strips. Highlights include the original art for the first 30 days of the strip and Gould's drawing board on which he created the comic strip.

The collection will be catalogued and made available to researchers in the coming months.

Ohio governor delays inmate's upcoming execution

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Republican Gov. John Kasich on Friday granted an eight-month reprieve to a condemned killer following last month's execution of an inmate who repeatedly gasped in the state's longest lethal-injection procedure.

The ruling by Kasich delays until Nov. 19 the execution of Gregory Lott, who was sentenced to death for setting an 82-year-old man on fire during a break-in and leaving him to die.

Attorneys for Lott have sued in federal court to stop his execution, arguing the Ohio's new two-drug combination puts him at risk of unnecessary pain and suffering. Lott's attorneys also allege Ohio is breaking state and federal laws because it has obtained the drugs without a prescription.

The reprieve says only that "circumstances exist justifying the grant of a temporary reprieve."

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman known for her love of cats was found in front of her home Friday fatally mauled by two neighborhood dogs.

Police say they found 57-year-old Klonda Richey unclothed, with her coat apparently torn off by the mixed-breed dogs.

Authorities said Richey's next-door neighbors, 28-year-old Andrew Nason and 23-year-old Julie Custer, were taken into custody and being held pending a formal charge of reckless homicide.

Results of an autopsy being conducted by the Montgomery County coroner weren't expected before Monday.

The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1bHkmVB) police were forced to kill the two male dogs after they charged officers.

The newspaper reported Richey, of Bruce Avenue, owned and cared for at least 20 cats. She worked as a part-time supply clerk at the county children's' services office.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The owner of an Ohio apartment building accused of setting a blaze that killed two firefighters has been indicted on aggravated murder charges that could carry a potential death penalty if he's convicted.

A county grand jury in Toledo indicted Ray Abou-Arab on Friday in the Jan. 26 blaze. He also faces two counts of murder, eight counts of aggravated arson and one count of tampering with evidence.

A message seeking comment was left for his attorney. The 61-year-old suspect is being held on $5 million bond.

Court documents allege Abou-Arab was in a garage at the site of the fire near downtown Toledo just before an apartment resident said she saw the blaze break out.

Veteran firefighter Stephen Machcinski and rookie James Dickman were killed.
