Hamilton man pleads guilty to killing woman in Ross Twp. crash



UPDATE @ 7:15 p.m. (Feb. 11)

A Kettering woman struck by two cars on Interstate 70 and her boyfriend were believed intoxicated when they crossed the highway, troopers said.

Marissa L. Christophel, 19, was hit Wednesday as she and Joseph P. Finch, 22, of Dayton, ran across I-70 between U.S. 68 and Ohio 72 to get back to their vehicle.

She was listed in serious condition today at Miami Valley Hospital, where she was flown from the scene.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol traffic crash report, Christophel was under the influence, with drug use suspected, when they ran across the interstate.

Finch was being charged with misdemeanor intoxicated pedestrian on the highway, Lt. Brian Aller of the patrol’s Springfield Post said last week. He said Christophel faces charges, too, pending drug test results.

The speed limit is 70 mph. The eastbound lanes were shut down for three hours following the accident, the traffic report stated.

Falls City Man Accused by NSP of Helping Convicted Murderer Flee Town after Killing


FALLS CITY, Neb. – A Falls City man was arrested on Friday after the Nebraska State Patrol issued an arrest warrant for being an accessory to a murder that occurred over two years ago.

The warrant by NSP says 33-year-old Michael Seager helped convicted murderer, 36-year-old Desiderio Hernandez, skip town after shooting Joseph Debella Jr. in Falls City.

According to court records, on August 5th, 2015, Hernandez came to Seager’s residence in the late-morning after shooting Debella earlier that morning.

The documents say that Seager, who spoke to the Nebraska State Patrol six days after the murder, said that Hernandez told Seager while inside Seager’s home that “bad stuff happened” and at one point, Hernandez pointed at his own forehead and said “it was right there.”

The arrest warrant states that Seager called an acquaintance in Horton Kan, seeking the phone number of one Hernandez’s cousin’s that also lives in Horton. The records say, the person told investigators that Seager said Hernandez was “in a bind”and that he was “hemmed up” and needed to leave Falls City.

The warrant says Seager and Hernandez left for Horton on the evening of August 5th.

Hernandez was arrested in the early morning hours on August 6th at his cousin’s residence
