DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio appeals court says charges were improperly dismissed for two nurses in the malnutrition death of a Dayton teenager who had cerebral palsy and weighed just 28 pounds.

The 2nd District Court of Appeals ruled Friday that a juvenile court wrongly dismissed misdemeanor charges of failure to report child abuse or neglect.

Mary Kilby, of Miamisburg, and Kathryn Williams, of Englewood, had been convicted in adult court for failing to provide for a functionally impaired person. A judge ruled the juvenile counts were similar to those charges, but the appeals court disagreed and sent the juvenile cases back to juvenile court.

The defendants' attorneys didn't immediately return calls Friday.

CINCINNATI (AP) — More than half a foot of snow is already on the ground in parts of southwestern and central Ohio as another round of wintry weather heads this way.

The National Weather Service says 7 inches of snow was reported in Harveysburg, Warren County and Oxford, Butler County. Five inches was reported in northwestern Cincinnati.

Forecasters say sunny skies on Saturday wouldn't last long, as more snow was forecast to hit parts of Ohio on Sunday.

Meteorologist Mike Kurz says more snowy weather is expected for southern Ohio on Sunday morning. He says that should change to a wintry mix as temperatures rise Sunday afternoon. He says parts of southern Ohio could get 1 to 3 inches of snow Sunday, with lesser amounts likely in central Ohio.

Ohio Amish girl won't be forced to renew chemo

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A court-appointed guardian is dropping her attempt to force an 11-year-old Amish girl with leukemia to resume chemotherapy after she and her parents fled their home to avoid treatment.

The move filed in court Friday will likely bring an end to a months-long fight between Sarah Hershberger's family and a hospital that began when her parents decided to halt the treatments because they were making the girl sick.

The guardian, an attorney who's also a registered nurse, was given the power to make medical decisions for Sarah after an appeals court ruling in October said the beliefs and convictions of the girl's parents can't outweigh the rights of the state to protect the child.

But the guardian, Maria Schimer, decided to drop the effort because she doesn't know where Sarah is now and it has become impossible to monitor her health or make any medical decisions, said Clair Dickinson, an attorney for Schimer.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio woman convicted of posing as a veterinarian at a clinic has been released from prison after serving about half of her 18-month sentence.

Authorities said Brandi Tomko pretended to be an animal doctor in Akron to support a drug habit. She was convicted of animal-related offenses and drug-related crimes.

Tomko had posed as a vet from 2009 to 2011 at an animal hospital, where she drew blood, wrote prescriptions and performed animal surgeries despite not being properly licensed.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1cfCmCK ) reports a judge granted Tomko early release this week and put her on probation for two years.

Tomko's attorney says he's satisfied with the outcome of the case.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Gordon Gee is returning to West Virginia University as interim president, five months after retiring from Ohio State University after remarks he made jabbing Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools were made public.

The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission approved Gee's hiring Friday, a day after the WVU Board of Governors made its recommendation without announcing a name.

Gee's stay is expected to be temporary and his annual salary was set at $450,000. Former President Jim Clements accepted the same position at Clemson University in November.

It marks the seventh time Gee, 69, has headed a major U.S. university, including two stints apiece at West Virginia and Ohio State.

WVU board chairman James Dailey said in a statement he's thrilled with Gee's appointment.
