CLEVELAND (AP) — One of the Cleveland area's most infamous unsolved murder cases came to an end Wednesday with a guilty plea in the 1984 beating death of a 14-year-old girl who was abducted on her way to school.

Hernandez Warren pleaded guilty to one count each of aggravated murder and rape in the death of Gloria Pointer. The plea agreement allows him to avoid the death penalty.

Warren, 59, was arrested a year ago after the Cuyahoga County medical examiner's office matched his DNA to evidence found at the scene. Warren had lived in the same neighborhood.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio schools would see additional grant money made available for security upgrades and face penalties for failing to submit safety plans under a package of school safety initiatives proposed by Gov. John Kasich.

The grants and sanctions were part of a package detailed Wednesday, elements of which have been tucked into a fast-moving midterm budget bill. Ohio's current law imposes no penalties for failing to file a required safety plan.

State Superintendent Richard Ross said 3,000 schools took advantage of $12 million made available last summer for entryway security and communications.

"There's so much interest in that, we went through that very, very quickly," Ross said.
