Principal disciplined for safety project

Cleveland Heights -- A suburban Cleveland high school principal has been disciplined for panicking students and staff during a safety project involving a school-shooter scenario.

The Northeast Ohio Media Groupreports that several students were screaming and running in the halls last week when administrative principal Johnetta Wiley announced on the public address system that there was a shooter in the building at Cleveland Heights High School.

Wiley and other staff members actually were filming a safety video before classes started and few people were in the building. But not everyone was told the scenario wasn't real, and police were called.

Wiley was put on paid administrative leave during an investigation.

The superintendent said students and teachers should have been notified. She said Wiley apologized for the incident.

Feds: Fatal overdose from heroin mixed with painkiller

Cleveland -- Federal prosecutors say a northeast Ohio man caused a woman's death by selling her a lethal dose of heroin.

An indictment against Siarres Noble alleges he sold heroin laced with the powerful painkiller fentanyl to an Elyria resident that caused her death the following day.

The Noble, 29, was charged April 9 in federal court in Cleveland with two counts of distribution of heroin and four counts of distribution of fentanyl.

One of the fentanyl charges includes an added allegation that the drug resulted in the woman's death on Nov. 9 last year.

Northeast Ohio authorities have cited several recent cases of fatal fentanyl-laced heroin overdoses.

Dahmer's childhood home up for sale

Bath -- The house where serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer grew up and committed his first murder is for sale in Ohio.

The home on a private wooded lot near Akron is on the market for just under $300,000.

Dahmer and his parents moved into the house in 1968 when he was just 8.

It was 10 years later when he committed his first murder in the house and buried the remains in the woods. Dahmer moved to Wisconsin in 1982 and went on to kill 16 more people before his crimes were discovered in 1991.

The realtor selling the house says about half the people who show interest are scared away once they learn about its past.

The house was up for sale two years ago before being pulled off the market.
