Adrian Barker was found guilty of the murder of Kent State student Christopher Kernich by a Portage County jury Friday afternoon. Barker was convicted of murder, felonious murder, felonious assault, and tampering with evidence. Barker’s sentencing date has not been set, but prosecutor Victor Vigluicci said he will recommend the sentence be no less than the state required minimum of fifteen years to life.

At least 10 people are dead in Mississippi after a tornado Saturday. Louisiana and Alabama were also affected, with people hurt and buildings destroyed across that area of the South. As cleanup efforts begin, Mississippi’s governor is going to ask for federal aid today.

Today, a high of 56, with a 90% chance of precipitation. Tonight, a low around 37. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny in the low fifties.
