Claudia Hoerig, the woman indicted in the 2007 shooting death of her husband, Maj. Karl Hoerig, in Newton Falls, is back in the United States and in the Trumbull County jail. The Trumbull Prosecutor’s Office announced a little before 10 p.m. Wednesday that the 53-year-old fugitive was returned from her native Brazil Wednesday, nearly 11 years after Judge Andrew Logan issued a warrant on April 12, 2007, to arrest her. She will be arraigned at 10 a.m. Friday in Judge Logan's courtroom. Youngstown council members say they’ve been pelted with calls from residents upset with how the city handled plowing during the recent snowstorm. Residents complained particularly about the side streets being largely – or completely – ignored, they say. Fourth Ward Councilman Mike Ray, said crews were working, "but the snow got the better of us," and 5th Ward Councilwoman Lauren McNally said, “We need to tackle the next snowstorm better than this one.” As Amer “Al” Adi sits in a cell in Geauga County jail on a hunger strike, the timeline for when he will be deported back to his native country of Jordan remains up in the air. Adi was taken into custody Tuesday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers in Cleveland during what was thought would be a routine meeting. HOLA Ohio, an organization that works to empower Latinos, has organized a group meeting for citizens outraged by the treatment of Adi for 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Flambeau’s, 2308 Market St., Youngstown. Mahoning County Career & Technical Center's Digital Design and Print program is doing everything it can to give students an edge when it comes to applying for college or a job, instructor Mary Ann Thoburn says. PrintED gives students the opportunity to earn three certifications based on industry standards, vie for post-secondary study scholarships and earn an additional three certifications in Adobe programs. The program was developed by the Graphics Arts Education and Research Foundation, a national accreditation program for helping graphic arts students after graduation. Nineteen-year-old Brandon Domer of Boardman is facing rape charges after a mother accused him of raping her 12-year-old daughter with special needs. The daughter told police Domer told her, “If you don’t cooperate, I’m going to take all the money, and you and your mom will be homeless,” a police report says. He told the arresting officers the girl threatened to call the police if he didn’t have sex with her. Two emergency-room doctors gave opposite opinions in court Wednesday on whether the broken arm Michael Tenney’s grandson suffered a year ago when he was 5 was caused by child abuse. Tenney is on trial in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court, accused of causing the injury by yanking on the boy’s arm while baby-sitting him and his little brother at Tenney’s Champion home. The boy initially told authorities it happened when he jumped or fell from a couch at the house, but later said his grandfather caused it by yanking on his arm while angry at him.
