DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit-area man was so determined to get to Michigan from Arizona that he refused to stop and contact authorities after one of his passengers died, police said Wednesday.

The man, a 62-year-old Clinton Township resident, has not been charged and authorities were awaiting toxicology results from an autopsy performed on the body of the 31-year-old woman who died.

Police said the man and his 92-year-old mother spend their winters in Arizona and were returning to Michigan with a 31-year-old woman with whom the man said he had had a romantic relationship. When officers arrived Tuesday at his son's home in Warren, just north of Detroit, the man was weeping on the curb and his mother was in her wheelchair in the back of the van. The dead woman's corpse was in the front passenger seat wearing a seatbelt and sunglasses.

"She obviously had been dead for at least 24 hours in screeching heat," said Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green.

Police did not release the names of the man or the dead woman.

CINCINNATI (AP) — New lawsuits Wednesday targeted traffic cameras used to cite motorists for allegedly speeding or running red lights in two Dayton suburbs, he latest legal challenge to camera use in Ohio.
The cases charge that the automated enforcement systems in Trotwood and West Carrollton violate motorists’ constitutional rights to due process and improperly bypass the court system. Attorneys from Cincinnati-based Michael K. Allen & Associates filing the lawsuits in Montgomery County have been involved in several other cases involving cameras, and have won judge’s orders shutting off cameras in the villages of Elmwood Place and New Miami.
Ohio midterm budget bill clears state Senate

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A package of Ohio tax changes backed by the governor cleared the state Senate on Wednesday as part of a midterm budget bill.

The measure was to go to the House for a vote but was held up amid concerns from some representatives who wanted to ensure the Legislature had control over $300 million set aside in the bill for a Medicaid reserve fund. The fund covers unexpected expenses for the taxpayer-funded health program.

"The House wanted us to put belt and suspenders on it, so we're putting belt and suspenders on it," Senate President Keith Faber, a Celina Republican, told reporters.

A GOP-backed amendment added by the Senate in a separate bill would set limitations on how the money could be used.

The sweeping budget bill contains an agreement over how to spend certain funding for mental health and addiction treatment services. Another provision would create an evaluation system for caseworkers at county Job and Family Services departments.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A Libertarian candidate for Ohio governor had his hopes dashed Wednesday, when a federal appeals court in Cincinnati declined to rehear his appeal seeking access to the state ballot.
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was the last stop for candidate Charlie Earl.
Ohio’s elections chief disqualified Earl from the primary election after his nominating petitions were challenged. Secretary of State Jon Husted agreed with a hearing officer who found that two Earl petitioners failed to properly disclose their employers.
