CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwestern Ohio lawmaker charged with misleading investors about a company's financial status and using their money for personal gain is set for a court hearing on Monday.

Rep. Pete Beck is scheduled for a plea or trial setting in Hamilton County court.

If he doesn't change his not guilty plea to the charges against him, then the judge could set his trial date.

Beck has been set for similar hearings in the past but they've been postponed.

Beck pleaded not guilty in July to 16 felony counts.

Beck has denied the allegations and brushed away calls that he resign.

GRAFTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a couple was killed when their Harley-Davidson motorcycle rode into the path of an SUV in northeast Ohio.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the crash happened at about 5:45 p.m. Sunday in Grafton Township, southwest of Cleveland.

The patrol said Robert Willis was riding the bike south on Grafton Road when he rode left of center in a curve and crashed into a northbound Chevrolet Equinox. His wife, Jolene Willis, was riding on the back and also was killed. Both were 37.

Both were wearing helmets.

Three people were in the SUV, and none of them were hurt.

The cause of the crash was being investigated.

DETROIT (AP) — Two Detroit teenagers were arrested Saturday in an attack on a suburban man who was brutally beaten by a mob after accidentally striking a boy with his pickup truck.

Investigators believe the 17-year-old and 16-year-old males had a direct role in the beating of Steve Utash, said Sgt. Mike Woody, a Detroit police spokesman.

Utash remained in critical condition Saturday, three days after the attack on the city's east side.

Woody said no charges would be immediately filed against the teens while investigators continue their work. Police believe at least six people may have been involved.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana receiver Isaac Griffith kept his composure as long as possible Saturday.

It was never going to last.

He listened stoically as safety Ty Smith explained how he ignored the dire warnings from his aquatics management class and his own mother, a former lifeguard, to run back into the water and help pull his best friend out of a life-threatening rip current. He heard receiver Nick Stoner explain how he ran the fastest 500-meter sprint of his life to seek medical help. He heard his parents describe his incredibly speedy recovery as nothing short of miraculous.

After all that, of course the tears started flowing.

"These (three) guys are my brothers, I love them to death," the 19-year-old freshman said, covering his eyes. "I always say that if you can take three warriors into battle, I'll take those three every time."

Century-old headstones vandalized at Ohio cemetery

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Vandals damaged close to 100 headstones at an eastern Ohio cemetery this past week.

Some of the markers were almost 150 years old, dating back to the Civil War era.

City officials in Zanesville think that more than one person was responsible for the damage at the Woodlawn Cemetery because of how many headstones were either knocked over or broken.

Cemetery Superintendent Jeff Johnson says some of the broken makers might not be fixable. He says it looks like a tornado went through the cemetery.

The cemetery opened in 1851. Those buried include former Civil War officers and three former congressmen.
