CrimeAkron man to serve life without parole for killing woman, hiding body in storage unit
Nevada man, 72, guilty of murder; stabbed victim 250 times
A Washoe County jury has convicted a 72-year-old man of first-degree murder in the February killing of an elderly man he stabbed at least 250 times. Ralph Goad faces up to life in prison without the possibility of parole at his sentencing set for Oct. 2. The Washoe District Court jury found him guilty following a weeklong trial in the death of 76-year-old Theodore Gibson in his Reno apartment. Detectives say there were signs of a struggle in the room where Gibson's body was found along with his empty wallet, a blood-stained knife and blood-stained pair of scissors.
An Akron man will serve life behind bars after he pleaded guilty to killing a woman and hiding her body in a storage unit in June.
Michael Olson, 35, pleaded guilty to aggravated murder, rape, grand theft of a motor vehicle, trespass in a habitation and gross abuse of a corpse in the murder of 68-year-old Katie Wohlfarth. Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Amy Corrigall Jones sentenced him to life without parole Tuesday.
Wohlfarth's family reported her missing June 17. Two days later, police found her body in an East Tallmadge Avenue storage unit. Olson was arrested after he was seen driving Wohlfarth's car.
Olson was spared the death penalty as a possible sentence in exchange for his guilty plea.
Facebook might start hiding 'Like' counts for posts.
Facebook on Tuesday confirmed it is dabbling with no longer making a public display of how many "likes" are racked up by posts. "We are considering hiding like counts from Facebook," a spokesman for the leading social network told AFP on Tuesday. Twitter has also experimented with hiding numbers of times tweets were "liked" or "retweeted," according to product lead Kayvon Beykpour. Twitter found that people engaged less with tweets when they couldn't see the counts. "When you remove engagement indicators, people engage less," Beykpour said while briefing journalists at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco last month.
