Shootings by man who was freed early prompt changes at court

Thomas Hartless, the man police say fatally shot an OH police chief and two nursing home employees last week, had a history of domestic violence.

The police chief slain by a gunman who killed two others in a nursing home last week died from a single shotgun wound as he got out of his auto, a coroner said Monday.

Suspect Thomas Hartless was found dead inside the Pine Kirk Care Center in Kirkersville, a village of some 500 residents, about 25 miles (39 kilometers) east of Columbus. Nurse Marlina Medrano, who had previously sought protective orders against Hartless in connection with domestic violence cases, was shot multiple times with a handgun and a shotgun.

Steinhaus coolly brushed Guardiola's arm off and the Spaniard was criticised in the German media for inappropriate conduct.


The Advocate in Newark reports Hartless wasn't supposed to have weapons, but a probation officer never checked his home, where authorities later found over 60 guns.

He was not allowed to possess firearms due to a 2010 felony abduction conviction. Judge Michael Higgins says Licking County Municipal Court is reviewing how the case was handled.

A neighbor told police Medrano had taken refuge in her house during one of Hartlesss's attacks. "Tom has a severe mental disorder".

Trump tweet suggests his conversations with Comey might have been recorded
November 13, 2016: In a CBS "60 Minutes" broadcast after the election, Trump says he hasn't decided whether to keep Comey. On Friday, NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian‏ tweeted that a source close to Comey told him that "He hopes there are tapes".


Investigators had found that Hartless had stayed at Medrano's home eight days before the shooting, according to the paper. Cindy Krantz, a nurse's aide, was shot and killed with a shotgun. Authorities say Medrano obtained a protection order against Hartless a week before he killed her.

Funerals are scheduled Friday for Medrano and Saturday for DiSario.
