The Ohio Supreme Court has granted a stay of execution for a man convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend on the side of Interstate 75 in Warren County, according to documents obtained by this news outlet.
Terry Froman kidnapped the victim, Kim Thomas, from her Mayfield, Ky., home in September 2014. He led police on a chase before beating Thomas and shooting her four times.
Froman was convicted on charges of aggravated murder and kidnapping earlier this year. A Warren County judge accepted the jury’s recommendation of a death penalty.
Froman’s attorney filed an appeal and requested the stay of execution last month, according to court documents.
The Supreme Court’s decision Wednesday to grant the stay means that no execution date will be set while the appeal is pending.

NASHVILLE — There are many who have played a part in the landscape of country music, many who have added their talents to the tapestry of the music genre that has had an impact on so many lives. many who have affected the history of Nashville and country music and many who have left us sooner than we would have liked.
One of those people is Hazel Smith.
According to “The Tennessean,” the longtime Nashville media personality passed away at her home on March 18 following “a period of declining health.” She was 83.
Declaring herself country music’s mother hen, Hazel was a fixture on Nashville’s Music Row for decades. She was a journalist when female journalists weren’t a common thing. She was also a songwriter, a publicist, a cookbook author and a television personality as host of CMT’s “Southern Fried Flicks.”
Yet, one of her most meaningful and lasting contributions to country music is the fact that she coined the term “outlaw music” while she was working as a publicist back in the early 1970s for the Glaser Brothers’ Hillbilly Central office and studio.
“Now, it doesn’t say this in mine or any other dictionary I’ve seen, but it said that ‘outlaw’ meant virtually living on the outside of the written law,” Hazel told “The Nashville Scene” in 1997, as reported on by “The Tennessean.” “It just made sense to me, because [record producers] Owen Bradley and Chet Atkins were doing marvelous music, but this was another step in another direction.”
Soon after the news of her death was released, many in the country music community headed to their social media accounts to express their sadness over the news, including producer Buddy Cannon.
Very sorry to hear of the passing of Hazel Smith,” Buddy said.

— A home-grown, Kettering-based Mexican restaurant chain is invading the Deep South with a new location that is poised to open tomorrow, March 21.
The newest franchise location for Hot Head Burritos will be in Auburn, Alabama. The town is home to Auburn University and is in the eastern part of the state, not far from the Georgia state line. And there is a second Alabama location of Hot Head Burritos already in the works in Gadsden, about 125 miles north of the Auburn restaurant.
“Our new location is ready to serve Auburn and its surroundings with the best burrito around,” Hot Head Burritos co-franchisee Z.A. Hughes told Auburn-area media in a release. “We’re excited to bring a brand-new option to the area, but we’re also committed to being good neighbors. We look forward to supporting local organizations that work to make Auburn the great area it is.”
Hot Head Burritos was founded in Dayton in 2007 and now operates more than 70 locations in seven states. Its menu includes burritos, bowls, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, and salsas served in a build-your-own service concept similar to Chipotle and Subway, and available with eight sauces that range “from Mild to Wild,” as Hot Head officials put it.
The locally based burrito chain also has been adding alcoholic beverages to many of its restaurants, with an emphasis on craft beers and margaritas. And Hot Head is renovating many of its restaurants to give them more of a cantina-like feel.
