GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana city council has reversed itself and approved a proposal allowing residents to keep chickens at their homes.

The Goshen City Council voted 4-3 Tuesday night in favor of a two-year program allowing up to 50 permits for those wanting to have chickens.

The Goshen News and the Elkhart Truth report the ordinance will require residents to get written approval from neighbors and allow up to six hens and no roosters.

Supporters say people should be allowed to raise their own food, while a couple council members said they were worried about health concerns and property values in the 30,000-person city.

The council had voted last month against a similar proposal.

Judge to sentence seven in deadly Ohio pill mill case

CINCINNATI (AP) — A judge has set sentencing dates for six doctors and the owner of three pain management clinics where they worked, all of whom previously pleaded guilty to charges related to the clinics' operations.

Indictments in 2012 and last year alleged dozens of customers a week would travel hundreds of miles to visit clinics in southern and central Ohio and pay $200 per visit for painkillers.

The indictments said prescriptions were written without meaningful physical exams and contributed to the deaths of at least two patients.

Cincinnati federal Judge Michael Barrett will sentence the clinic owner and five doctors on May 21 and a sixth doctor on June 12.

No sentencing date has been set for an eighth defendant who pleaded guilty last month to failing to file federal income taxes.

TIFFIN, Ohio (AP) — The mother of a northwest Ohio autistic teen who had been missing since Sunday says her son has been found safe.

Jennifer Duffey, the mother of Shiloh J. Robinson, tells The Advertiser-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1kvDUzU ) she found her son at Cherry Street Mission in Toledo.

Tiffin police had been looking for the 18-year-old, who left behind a note saying he might walk to the Toledo area.

Toledo is about 55 miles from Tiffin.

Duffey says he had left Sunday afternoon without the medication he needs after they had a disagreement.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio woman has been indicted on charges alleging she used a debit card that had been reported stolen from a woman whose body was found last week.

Montgomery County's prosecutor says 29-year-old Tonisha Harris of Dayton was indicted Tuesday on charges of receiving stolen property, theft by deception and misuse of a credit card. The prosecutor says Harris was captured on video using Nichelle McKnight's card.

Court records list no attorney for Harris.

Police say McKnight and her 4-year-old son went missing in March. McKnight's body was found Friday near a river in suburban Dayton. Police say the boy hasn't been found and is presumed dead.

Police wanted to question McKnight's boyfriend about the disappearances, but he fatally shot himself last week in a confrontation with police.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The two Ohio cities still in contention to host the 2016 Republican National Convention will be visited in late April by party staff or members of a selection committee.

Teams will visit Cincinnati on April 29 and Cleveland on April 30 for a more in-depth look at factors such as financing, convention venues, media workspace and hotels.

The visits will help officials decide which of the cities on the short list get visits from the full RNC delegation before the convention site is chosen.

Republican officials plan to pick the host city this summer, and Las Vegas has emerged as an early leading contender. The other cities in the running are Dallas, Denver and Kansas City, Mo.
