BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol says a single-engine plane was forced to make an emergency landing on a golf course in southwest Ohio.

The patrol's Batavia post says the plane made the landing shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday on a fairway at the Stillmeadow Country Club in Clermont County.

A preliminary investigation indicates the plane experienced engine failure after taking off from the Clermont County Airport. Investigators say the plane hit a sand bunker before coming to a stop and rolled partially on its side on the green.

The patrol identified the two people on board as pilot Kenneth Howes and passenger and owner Karla Goodhouse, both of St. Clair, Illinois. No injuries were reported.

The Federal Aviation Administration also responded to the scene.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Former Ohio State University football coach Jim Tressel has applied to become president at Youngstown State University less than a month after he applied for the same position at the University of Akron.

The Youngstown Vindicator (http://bit.ly/OQZhzc ) reports that the head of a firm leading Youngstown State's search said that Tressel applied for the post on Friday.

A message seeking comment with AGB Search's president was not immediately returned.

Tressel coached at Youngstown State before leaving for Ohio State where he was forced out following a scandal that led to NCAA sanctions.

He has worked as an administrator at Akron for two years. He applied in mid-March for the president's job there, saying he had 35 years of experience in higher education.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Police have found the body of a southwest Ohio woman who went missing last month and say they are investigating her death as a homicide.

Authorities say 25-year-old Nichelle McKnight's body was discovered Friday near the Stillwater River in the Dayton suburb of Harrison Township.

She went missing in March with her four-year-old son.

Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl (BEEL) said the search continues for the boy, but he is presumed dead.

Biehl says police went to a vacant apartment complex near the river after receiving a tip that McKnight's boyfriend Antwan Anderson frequented the complex.

Anderson died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a confrontation with police on Monday. They had wanted to question him about the disappearances of McKnight and her son, Zaden.
