CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland police say a 1-year-old girl was submerged in scalding water this weekend at a home on the city's East Side, severely burning her.

Police told The Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/1ji9IGF) on Sunday that a 23-year-old man has been arrested on a child-endangering charge but did not release his identity.

A police report says that paramedics responded to a report of an unconscious toddler on Saturday afternoon.

The report says the girl sustained second-degree burns from the waist down. She was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.

Police have declined to release further information.

Ohio legislator wants to allow stronger beer

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Legislation in the Ohio House would allow Ohio beers to hike up their alcohol content.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1i9d1lC ) that House Bill 391 would increase the maximum percentage from 12 to 21 percent for beers produced and sold in the state. Democratic Rep. Dan Ramos of Lorain has been promoting the measure, saying Ohio brewers need to be able to use the higher alcohol content to compete with beer in other states. The higher-alcohol beer couldn't have caffeine or other stimulants in it.

"It's about leveling the playing fields with other states," said Ramos, who has bipartisan support from 20 co-sponsors for his latest effort to allowing punching up Ohio beers. "A lot of breweries in Ohio find themselves at a competitive disadvantage."

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says he hopes legislators will look at how raising the alcohol percentage could impact drunk driving.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force says work on a new building can go ahead in southwest Ohio.

Work on the $35.4 million expansion project was held up after another contractor filed a protest of the award to Turner Construction Co. But the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reviewed the bid award and rejected the protest.

A notice to proceed was issued Friday.

The fourth building for the museum near Dayton will allow relocation of the Presidential Aircraft Gallery from a hangar in a restricted-access area of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. A gallery on research and development will also move, and a new space gallery will showcase a space shuttle exhibit. Another gallery will focus on airlift operations.

The fourth building is now expected to open in 2016.

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in eastern Ohio say a man representing himself in his aggravated murder trial didn't get the testimony he wanted from two former girlfriends.

The Zanesville Times Recorder reports (http://ohne.ws/1h1Cyts ) that Timothy Daniel had hoped for support for a story claiming self-defense. But after his jury conviction Friday, he faces a potential sentence of life in prison for the slaying last Oct. 31 of Charles Hooper in a South Zanesville Burger King restaurant. Witnesses testified that Hooper had tried to intervene when Daniel angrily confronted his girlfriend of the time.

The newspaper reports that Daniel, 34, had hoped to present a tale of Hooper, 61, as the woman's "sugar daddy" and claim he was acting in self-defense. But the woman said she had never seen Hooper before Daniel hit him with a pistol and then fired into his forehead.

Then another former girlfriend surprised him when she took the stand.

"I'm not going to sit up here and lie for you, Tim. I won't," witness Heidi McGilton said.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — State regulators have cited a northeast Ohio municipal water system over a contractor's failure to do required testing.

In response, Youngstown's city water department will no longer use the testing lab.

According to The (Youngstown) Vindicator (bit.ly/1b7Xtqu), the contractor failed to analyze water samples in a timely manner because of an equipment problem.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency issued a citation against the city. The citation didn't include a fine, but the city must notify water customers in the next monthly bill.

Youngstown Water Commissioner Harry Johnson III says there is no problem with the water.

The city is mandated by the EPA to test water for specific contaminants at various times during the year.
