Grand Jury Considering Ohio Rape Case Adjourns
A grand jury in eastern Ohio has adjourned after three days spent considering whether other crimes might have occurred in the rape of a 16-year-old West Virginia girl a year ago.
Dan Tierney, a spokesman for the Ohio Attorney General, says the panel adjourned Wednesday in Steubenville and will reconvene at a later date.

In March, a judge convicted two high school football players of raping the girl after an alcohol-fueled party last summer.
Attorney General Mike DeWine has said nothing is off the table for the grand jury, which has met periodically since April.
