BELLEFONTAINE — An Urbana woman described as an avid bowler, was arrested Saturday and charged in the hit-and-run pedestrian crash that killed Marine Gunnery Sgt. Monica Plank.
Holly J. Fowler, 26, of 5939 School St., was charged with a third-degree felony count of leaving the scene of a crash that resulted in the death of another and a felony count of tampering with evidence.
Her car, a maroon Chevrolet Malibu LT, was impounded after officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department met with her at TP Lanes, 300 E. Lake Ave., around 4:45 p.m.
At that time, she repeatedly denied any knowledge of the crash even though officers and detectives observed damage to the passenger side of her car that was consistent with the fatal collision Feb. 16.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich is preparing to deliver a State of the State speech that is expected to emphasize recent gains in private-sector jobs and lay out the Republican's latest ideas for benefiting the state's economy.

Education is likely to be a key theme in Monday's speech at the Performing Arts Center in Medina.

The first-term governor has said he believes students need access to vocational options perhaps as early as 7th grade. He's also hinted public schools should be partially "deregulated" to give educators more flexibility to prevent students from lagging.

Kasich has said he'll work to further reduce Ohio's income tax rate, a goal set out in his 2010 campaign.

His Democratic 2014 rival says Kasich's policies have not benefited Ohio's schools or the overall economy.

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities are investigating the death of a 23-year-old man who apparently fell and hit his head near the campus of Ohio University.

Athens police said William Patrick Thomas fell at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday and was found in the stairwell of a restaurant on North Court Street. A university official said Thomas, of the Columbus suburb of Gahanna, was not a student at the southeastern Ohio school.

Thomas was pronounced dead at a hospital. Foul play is not suspected but police are still investigating.

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say five people were killed in two separate head-on crashes in central Ohio.

Three were killed Sunday night when an SUV crashed head-on into another vehicle carrying a family of four on a dark road in southern Union County, northwest of Columbus.

Deputies were still investigating the crash, and no names have been released.

The accident came hours after two people were killed and another was critically injured in a head-on crash in Fairfield County, southeast of Columbus. The patrol said two women in a Honda Accord were killed.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two young children died Sunday from injuries they sustained in a house fire that killed two of their siblings and their parents, an Indianapolis Fire Department spokeswoman said.

Miranda Guerra, 14, and her 6-year-old brother, Fuentes, were pronounced dead Sunday afternoon at Riley Hospital for Children, Capt. Rita Reith said.

The extended family was working with the hospital for possible organ procurement, Reith said.

"We believe this to be the largest single loss of life for a family due to fire in the IFD service district," Reith said.

The two children had been considered in "extreme critical" condition following the fire, which happened Saturday morning on Indianapolis' east side.
