TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) β€” Funerals and a "last alarm" memorial service are planned later this week for two Toledo firefighters killed in a northwest Ohio apartment blaze.

A memorial service for the two men is scheduled Thursday night at a downtown convention center.

Visitation for 31-year-old James Dickman is scheduled earlier that day at a Perrysburg church, with a funeral planned Friday afternoon in Sandusky.

The visitation for 42-year-old Stephen Machcinski starts Friday afternoon at a Toledo funeral home. His funeral is scheduled there Saturday morning.

Firefighters carried the men out of a burning apartment building on stretchers last Sunday and tried to save them. Autopsies showed that both men died from burns and carbon monoxide.

Thousands of condolence messages from all over the country have been posted on Facebook tribute pages for them.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) β€” An Ohio man convicted of fatally shooting one cousin and injuring another cousin during a home-invasion robbery could face the death penalty.

The same jury that convicted 20-year-old Bryan D. Giles on Tuesday of aggravated murder and other charges in Akron will reconvene on March 11 to decide whether to recommend the death penalty or life in prison.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1llDiQ5 ) reports that Giles was convicted of fatally shooting his 27-year-old cousin Jarrell Cunningham in the head last February. Another cousin, 21-year-old Terrell Patterson, was shot twice in the head but survived.

Patterson was able to call 911 after the attack and testified last week. Police said Giles confessed less than a week later while being questioned by detectives.

GREENFIELD, Ind. (AP) β€” Police investigating a home burglary reported by an 89-year-old woman arrested her next-door neighbor after following footprints in the snow to his house.

Maj. Derek Towle of the Greenfield Police Department says the woman heard a noise in her home early Tuesday and confronted a man. The suspect snatched her purse before fleeing out the back door of her home about 20 miles east of Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1dLtSmT ) officers called to the woman's home spotted footprints in the snow outside and followed them to a home where they found the missing purse with its contents still inside.

Police arrested 23-year-old Andrew M. Reeves, who was being held without bond on a burglary charge at the Hancock County Jail. It wasn't clear whether he has an attorney.

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) β€” A Florida based energy company says it plans to spend more than $500 million on a natural gas-fired power plant in southwest Ohio that could mean jobs for 400 people in the area.

NTE Energy said Tuesday that it plans to operate "one of the most efficient natural gas-fired power plants in the United States" in Middletown, between Dayton and Cincinnati, according to the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1ewJcES ).

Officials say permit applications have begun. The project is expected to begin construction in 2015 and go online 2018.

The company said the bulk of the 300 to 400 construction jobs are expected to be filled by the members of skilled trades unions. When it's finished, the plant is expected to add around 25 to 30 full-time jobs to the Middletown area.

Courtroom brawl breaks out at Ohio sentencing

CINCINNATI (AP) β€” A court appearance by an Ohio man who fatally shot his girlfriend was marred by a courtroom brawl that injured a sheriff's deputy.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/MoXfWN ) reports that it happened Monday as Leonard Lanier was preparing to plead guilty to the slaying last year of Strawberry Edwards.

Authorities said the courtroom erupted when Lanier's brother and a relative of Edwards began fighting. A prosecutor had her glasses broken and a deputy sheriff suffered a broken finger.

Both brawlers were found to be in contempt of court and were jailed.

When order was restored, 28-year-old Leonard Lanier pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of manslaughter and was sentenced to 28 years in prison.
