Indiana-based artist Tasha Lewis transforms the Conservatory’s gallery with thousands of magnetic cyanotype butterflies printed on cotton fabric. Her blue butterflies hover in mid-air and seem to swarm the space, blurring the connection between the natural and artificial worlds.
Highway shootings suspect changing plea to insanity
An attorney says the man charged in a series of highway shootings in the Columbus area is changing his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity.
Twenty-nine-year-old Charles A- McCoy Junior originally had pleaded innocent to a 24-count indictment including the fatal shooting of a 62-year-old woman in November.
Gail Knisley of Washington Court House was the only person hit in the attacks, which occurred mostly on or around Interstate 270 in Columbus.
McCoy’s lawyer Andrew Haney says the change of plea was filed Wednesday morning in Franklin County Common Pleas Court.
The change in plea comes a day after Judge Charles Schneider ruled McCoy — who is on medication for schizophrenia — is competent to stand trial.
