Illinois Man Indicted for Warren County Murder, Kidnapping

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Mon, 10/20/2014 - 13:22

WARREN COUNTY -- The man accused in the murders of a woman and her son indicted today (Oct. 20, 2014).

Terry Froman, 41, of Brookport, Illinois, faces five charges, including aggravated murder and kidnapping.

Froman was arrested Sept. 12 after leading police in Ohio on a short chase up I-75 north in Warren County. Police say he fatally shot 17-year-old Michael Eli Mohney in Kentucky and then abducted his mother, 34-year-old Kim Thomas. Thomas and Froman reportedly had previously dated.

Police say an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper pulled over Froman along I-75, following a brief pursuit. Once stopped, the trooper reports hearing gunfire from within the vehicle.

Once they approached the vehicle, police say they found Thomas shot dead in the back seat and Froman injured from a gunshot wound in the driver's seat. He was hospitalized and then jailed.

Ohio prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty against Froman. Kentucky prosecutors also have charged Froman for Mohney's death, but Froman will face the Ohio charges first.

His arraignment in Warren County has been scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Teal Pumpkin Project Hopes to Make Halloween Safer for Kids with Allergies

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Mon, 10/20/2014 - 12:05

UNDATED -- This Halloween, some families are forgoing the traditional orange pumpkins for a shade of teal. One group is hoping the greenish-blue pumpkins could help protect kids who have food allergies.

Many kids have allergies to dairy,  nuts, and soy--but many Halloween treats contain these very ingredients. That's why the Food Allergy Research and Education organization wants to take the potentially deadly "tricks" out of trick-or-treating.

Their Teal Pumpkin Project encourages people to put a painted pumpkin outside their door if they are offering non-food treats for kids with allergies. The group suggests offering small toys, stickers, and crayons as options.

The idea is getting a huge online response. The group's first Facebook post about it reached 2.7 million people in three days.

According to the CDC, 4 to 6 percent of kids in the U.S. have a food allergy.

Remains of 40 People Stolen from Cemeteries; Police Baffled

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Mon, 10/20/2014 - 11:20

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The cremated remains of 40 people have gone missing from two cemeteries in Knoxville.

Berry Highland Cemetery officials were working with a family who had cremated remains of a loved one kept at their cemetery, and they quickly realized when the urn was missing.

Staff began checking other urns in the cemetery and discovered 21 were missing.

They also searched the other cemeteries they own, and found 19 more missing from Berry Highland West.

Now they're working to notify 40 families whose loved one's cremated remains have vanished.

Knoxville police say the case is bizarre.

They still have unanswered questions, but they believe whoever is responsible is familiar with how cremated remains are kept.

Whoever did this, however, did not leave a trace of the crime behind.

Now, investigators are stumped and can't determine when the crimes actually happened.

Police say they have a team of investigators working to track down those responsible.

Since the thefts were discovered, cemetery officials have put security measures in place and are considering adding security cameras.

CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Cop Saves Woman's Life Along Highway

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Mon, 10/20/2014 - 10:45

ANDERSON, S.C. -- Dramatic dash cam video shows a police officer saving a choking woman's life on the side of a busy interstate.

State Transport Police Officer E.J. New was patrolling the roads as he does every day.

While rolling along Interstate 85 in Anderson County he pulled a truck over for a violation. Another truck, however, pulled in behind him.

Officer New said it was clear the truck's driver needed his help.

The dash cam in his vehicle captured him performing the Heimlich maneuver on the choking woman.

After a few times, Officer New was able to get the woman breathing again.

New says he is humble about his actions, but people who work with him are calling him a hero.

This is actually the second time Officer New has saved someone's life. He performed CPR on a man having a heart attack when he was in college.

He says this just shows the importance of being trained in life-saving skills.

Apple Pay Debuts Today in Stores

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Mon, 10/20/2014 - 07:56

MIAMI VALLEY -- Apple's new mobile payment system, Apple Pay, debuts today (October 20, 2014).   

You can now leave your cash and credit cards at home, if you have Apple's latest iPhone 6 or newer versions of Apple's iPad's.
Several stores have signed on to use Apple Pay including Walgreen's, Macy's, McDonald's and Staples.
Apple says using your phone in the stores actually protects you even more against hackers by adding your credit card information in the iPhone's Passbook app. You can then use your phone's fingerprint scanner and hold your phone up to the register.

If you lose your phone, just notify banks that your card may be breached, like users do now with credit cards.

Apple says your payments are private, and they will not store the details of your transactions. You never reveal your name, card number, or security code to the cashier when you pay in a store. Reports say this additional layer of privacy helps ensure that your information is not leaked to hackers.

A similar feature is already on other devices, including Android, Windows and Blackberry phones.
