Republican Gov.-elect John Kasich said Wednesday that residents of Scioto County feel as if they've been hit by a "tsunami" of problems that can't be solved.
Kasich says he doesn't believe searching for a silver bullet will work, but that the state instead must focus on achieving step-by-step victories.
Kasich visited Portsmouth during a swing through southern Ohio to meet with area lawmakers, law enforcement officials and health workers.
Woman arrested in hiding son's body
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Court documents say an Indiana woman told police she fed her 3-year-old son olive oil and vinegar until he stopped breathing and died, then hid his body for more than a year.
Fort Wayne police arrested Latisha Ann Lawson this week after family members reported her and her two children missing.
Officers found Lawson and her 10-year-old daughter living in a home provided by a church. They also found a young boy's remains inside a tote bag at the home. A coroner on Wednesday ruled strangulation as the cause of death. Police are awaiting DNA test results, but say the remains are believed to be Lawson's son, Jezaih King.
Lawson remains jailed on a felony charge of neglect of a dependent causing death. She didn't have a defense attorney Wednesday.
