CLEVELAND (AP) — Seven cancer specialists in northern Ohio have been put on probation on their guilty pleas to importing unapproved cancer drugs.

The government says the seven also must pay a total of $2.6 million in fines and restitution.

The doctors pleaded guilty to violating the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The charges were filed last August, and the doctors were sentenced over the past four months.

The seventh doctor was put on probation Tuesday by a federal magistrate in Cleveland.

AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A man suspected in the 1997 slaying of his estranged wife in Tennessee was arrested in Texas but freed on a clerical error before being recaptured in Ohio.

Wood County, Ohio, jail records show Adolphus Hollingsworth was being held Wednesday on a murder charge pending his return to Chattanooga, Tenn.

The remains of Victoria Witherspoon Carr were found in 1999. The case was recently featured on TNT's crime show "Cold Justice."

Hollingsworth allegedly had been living in Amarillo, where he was arrested Jan. 22 and held for officers in Hamilton County, Tenn.

Potter County Sheriff Brian Thomas on Tuesday said a new employee mistakenly contacted Hamilton County, Texas, which had no warrant for Hollingsworth. He was released before the mistake was discovered Friday.

Hollingsworth was nabbed Saturday in Rossford, Ohio.

WEST BEND, Wis. (AP) — Hundreds of people packed a Catholic church in a southeastern Wisconsin city to mourn the death of a Purdue University student who was killed in a campus classroom last week.

University President Mitch Daniels and fellow engineering students traveled from West Lafayette, Ind., for the funeral of Andrew Boldt, held at St. Francis Cabrini (kah-BREE'-nee) in West Bend Tuesday night.

Daniels says that as he learned more about Boldt and his family he realized "America doesn't have any finer people."

Teachers and friends from Boldt's former school, Marquette University High in Milwaukee, were among the mourners. WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/1aHhr11 ) reports Marquette's president, Rev. Warren Sazama, urged those dealing with Boldt's death to come together as a community of faith in prayer.

Another Purdue engineering student, Cody Cousins, is charged with killing Boldt.

Ohio wants appeal of well thrown out

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — The state wants an agency to throw out an appeal of a permit issued for a gas-drilling wastewater well in southeast Ohio.

The Ohio Attorney General's Office earlier this week filed a motion with the state oil and gas commission asking for dismissal of the appeal of a drilling permit for the injection well in Troy Township, southeast of Athens.

The Athens Messenger (http://bit.ly/1a1bco6 ) reports that the appeal was filed with the commission earlier this month by the Athens County Fracking Action Network. The group claims the well won't adequately protect groundwater.

The attorney general's office contends that permits for oil and gas wells cannot be appealed to the commission under Ohio law.

Local governments have also opposed the well.

Woman acquitted in Ohio bicyclist's death

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio judge says there's not enough evidence to convict a driver who struck and killed a drunken bicycle rider.

Franklin County Municipal Court Judge H. William Pollitt Jr. on Tuesday acquitted 24-year-old Davenna Ferguson of vehicular manslaughter.

The judge said he couldn't say for sure that Ferguson wasn't telling the truth when she said she didn't see the bicyclist, 33-year-old Ernesto Galvez-Jacobo, before rear-ending him on a dark road in Columbus in May 2012.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1b3UTW7 ) reports that Galvez-Jacobo's blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit for driving a car or riding a bike. He also had marijuana in his system.

A city prosecutor had argued that Ferguson was responsible because she failed to maintain an assured clear distance.
