TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Two firefighters battling a blaze at an apartment complex near downtown Toledo were killed on Sunday, city officials said.

Firefighters Stephen Machcinski, 42, and James Dickman, 31, were killed while fighting the fire in the six-unit building, Toledo Fire Department Chief Luis Santiago said at a news conference Sunday night.

He said that Machcinski was a 16-year veteran, while Dickman had been on the job for only six months. Both worked together at the same firehouse in the city.

Santiago said that the fire department will fully investigate the blaze, which was reported around 3:30 p.m.

 
Family alleges Ohio execution unconstitutional

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The prolonged execution of an inmate during which he repeatedly gasped and snorted amounted to cruel and unusual punishment which should not be allowed to happen again, the inmate's family said in a federal lawsuit.

The lawsuit, filed late Friday, also alleges the drug maker that produced the medications illegally allowed them to be used for an execution and should be prohibited from making them available for capital punishment.

Dennis McGuire "repeated cycles of snorting, gurgling and arching his back, appearing to writhe in pain," the lawsuit said. "It looked and sounded as though he was suffocating."

McGuire's execution Jan. 16 lasted 26 minutes, the longest since the state resumed putting inmates to death in 1999, according to an Associated Press analysis of all 53 execution logs maintained by the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.

It remains unclear what McGuire experienced. The AP observed him appearing to fall unconscious and remaining so while he snorted, gasped and opened and shut his mouth repeatedly.

LIMA, Ohio (AP) — A 34-year-old man has been found dead in a western Ohio lake after authorities say he crashed his snowmobile near the shore.

Montezuma fire officials tell The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1dEyJpY) that Dale Bruns of St. Henry went missing after he left a bar around midnight Saturday.

An extensive search involving nearly 90 personnel from seven agencies ensued.

At about 10 a.m. Saturday, a team with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources spotted Bruns' snowmobile helmet floating in the open waters of Grand Lake St. Marys, about 30 miles southwest of Lima.

His body was found soon after.

Last month, a 44-year-old Gary Jenkins of Norwalk in northern Ohio was killed when the snowmobile he was riding south of Sandusky hit a culvert and threw him.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Three people have been charged in northeast Ohio in connection with the theft of a police officer's Glock semi-automatic weapon.

Youngstown police arrested the trio a week ago and they were locked up after a court appearance.

The weapon belonging to a Boardman police officer was stolen from his girlfriend's Youngstown home.

According to The Vindicator of Youngstown (bit.ly/1hTqStU), charges against the suspects include carrying a concealed weapon, burglary and possession.

Officers who made the traffic stop for people fighting inside also found an electronic stun gun, police-issued chemical spray and bags of suspected marijuana.
