Toledo building owner indicted in firefighter deaths
TOLEDO (AP) — The owner of an Ohio apartment building accused of setting a blaze that killed two firefighters has been indicted on aggravated murder charges that could carry a poten-tial death penalty if he’s convicted.A county grand jury in Toledo indicted Ray Abou-Arab on Friday in the Jan. 26 blaze. He also faces two counts of murder, eight counts of aggra-vated arson and one count of tampering with evidence.A message seeking comment was left for his attorney. The 61-year-old suspect is being held on $5 million bond.Court documents allege Abou-Arab was in a garage at the site of the fire near down-town Toledo just before an apartment resident said she saw the blaze break out.Veteran firefighter Stephen Machcinski and rookie James Dickman were killed.
Weak US jobs report also offers hints of optimism
PAUL WISEMANAssociated Press
WASHINGTON — A second straight month of weak job growth renewed concerns Friday that the vigor displayed by the American economy late last year may be gone, at least for the moment.The Labor Department’s monthly employment report showing a tepid gain of 113,000 jobs in January followed December’s puny increase of 75,000 — far below last year’s average monthly gain of 194,000.Yet the report provided some cause for optimism. Solid hiring last month in manufacturing and construction point to underlying strength.And in a healthy sign, more Americans began looking for jobs, suggesting they were more hopeful about their prospects. A sizable 115,000 formerly unemployed people also said they found jobs. Their hiring reduced the unemployment rate to a sea-sonally adjusted 6.6 percent, the lowest in more than five years.Most economists say they think hiring will strengthen dur-ing 2014 as the economy improves further.Job growth “clearly has downshifted over the past two months,” said Doug Handler, chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight. “But we still believe the economic fundamen-tals remain strong and … forecast an acceleration of growth later in the year.”
