Judge Chryssa Hartnett declared a mistrial late in the day Friday when the jury for a second time told her they could not reach a verdict. McKernan is accused of murdering her husband.

1 Survivor of Deadly Carroll Co. Plane Crash

A touching ending to the story of a Mahoning County man, killed when his plane crashed in Carroll County earlier this week: His pet poodle survived the five days it took to find the wreckage and the body of 83-year-old Willard Olds. They found the dog under the seat, where Olds was still strappped in. Investigators used radar evidence to determine where the plane went down; it was just off Route 39, west of Mechanicstown. He had taken off from Salem Airpark on Sunday; the crash is under investigation. (PHOTO COURTESY CARROLL CO. SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT).

Outdoors notebook | Ohio’s wild turkey numbers no record, but on par with 2015

Serious wild-turkey hunters typically are all-business, and business isn’t as good as it once was. A lot of that, however, probably rests with the cyclical inclinations of nature. Not that Ohio’s current spring turkey season looks anything like a bust. Last year’s total of 17,652 bearded birds checked during the four-week hunt appears to be in reach.
