WOMAN ASSAULTED

Toledo police are searching for a suspect after a 73-year-old was beaten and robbed. The victim tells authorities she was walking to work last week near the 6000-block of Lewis when two men approached her, punched her in the face and took off with her purse. Investigators tell us the assault left the woman with severe injuries.

TOLEDO FIRE

A massive fire lit up the night sky. Crews were called to an intense blaze at the corner of North Erie and Locust around 6pm. Firefighters tell us the flames were so intense, they fought defensively and let it burn out. Investigators say the home is vacant and boarded up. We're told this is likely a case of arson. Crews on the scene said the wind actually helped them, fueling the fire and causing it to burn out more quickly.

FINDLAY FEATURED

Big news for the Flag City. Findlay is featured in the July issue of "Ohio Magazine". The publication named Findlay the 2013 best Northwest Ohio Hometown. Journalists will show off the city in the upcoming magazine, calling it a town for young and old alike.

ASSISTING EXECUTIONS

(AP) - The state's prison agency says wants medical professionals to assist with executions in order to help promote humane procedures. Prisons attorney Greg Trout also told a state Supreme Court committee reviewing Ohio's death penalty law today that protection should be offered pharmacies that mix supplies of execution drugs. Trout says that without such protection Ohio might not be able to obtain drugs to carry out future executions.

DISABLED CRUISE SHIP

(AP) - They're only a few miles away from docking, but it will be hours before all the thousands of passengers aboard a disabled cruise ship step off the vessel. The nearly 900-foot Carnival Triumph is being slowly pulled by tugs along a channel to a port at Mobile, Ala. Even when it arrives, unloading passengers will take hours. Carnival says passengers will be given warm food, blankets and cell phones. They'll be given the option of a two-hour bus ride to New Orleans, or a 7-hour trip back to the point of origin, Galveston, Texas.

DORNER IDENTIFIED

(AP) - A charred boy found in the ruins of a mountain cabin has been identified as that of ex-Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner. Officials say his dental records were used to make the confirmation. The cabin went up in flames after a police assault. It's believed Dorner killed four people.

ILLINOIS SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

(AP) - The push to allow same-sex marriages in Illinois has gotten its biggest victory to date with a historic Valentine's Day vote in the state Senate. That advances the measure to the House. Supporters are expressing confidence that within two weeks the "Land of Lincoln" could join nine other states that have lifted their gay-marriage bans amid shifting public opinion.

REGAINING VISION

(AP) - Patients who have lost their sight due to a rare disorder may be able to regain some vision using a new implantable device that takes the place of damaged cells inside the eye. The government has approved the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System as the first treatment for an inherited disorder that causes the breakdown of cells in the retina, a membrane inside the eye. Only a small number of patients will be able to get the technology initially. It could be eventually used to treat other vision disorders.
