Columbus artist Ric Stewart combines his love of art and motorcycles, most notably through sculpture. We visit his workshop at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center where he demonstrates for us the “lost-wax” method of bronze casting.
Suspects Plead Not Guilty In Grandfather’s Slaying
A central Ohio man and two other adults charged with aggravated murder and other counts in the slaying of his 84-year-old grandfather have pleaded not guilty.
Thirty-year-old Shaun Lawson, 20-year-old Kyle Robinson and 20-year-old Joshua Johnson appeared in court Wednesday in Circleville, south of Columbus. Police say Lawson was the likely shooter in the March 31 slaying of his grandfather, Thomas Whitson.
A neighbor in rural Pickaway County found Whitson dead in his chair with a gunshot wound to his head. Deputies said several firearms were missing from the house. The three adults were arrested, along with two 17-year-old boys.
The adults were indicted Friday in the case. The juveniles are awaiting a hearing to determine if they will be prosecuted as adults.
