An Ohio man convicted of murder is getting a new trial later this month, but before his big day in court, he walked down the aisle to marry the sister of the man he is accused of killing. Crystal Straus married John Tiedjen at his home in Cleveland over the weekend. Teidjen was convicted of killing her brother Brian McGary in 1987. In June, after 32 years behind bars, Cuyahoga County Judge Dick Ambrose threw out Tiedjen’s murder conviction and granted him a new trial. Tiedjen’s defense attorney had submitted dozens of crime photos and police reports that were not seen in the original trial. That is when Straus wrote a letter to Tiedjen, who was still in prison, offering her forgiveness and belief that he did not kill her brother. “I wrote her a letter back and said ‘I didn’t do it. Take a look at this stuff,’” Tiedjen said. Tiedjen is still on house arrest, but as he awaits a new trial, he hopes the court will allow him to get the surgery he says he will need to have sight in his left eye. The first hearing the Tiedjen’s retrial is currently set for August 31st. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A man has been arrested after causing a disturbance at the Easton Town Center AMC movie theater Saturday night. 25-year-old Benjamin Pendleton was arrested and faces a misdemeanor charge of inducing panic. Police said they received reports of an active shooter around 8:54 p.m. However, Columbus Police Sgt. James Fuqua said there were no shots fired at the theater. Fuqua attributed the initial, erroneous reports of shots being fired to young people fleeing the theater in a panic. “Because the young people who were inside were yelling this as they were coming out, word spread very, very quickly,” Fuqua said. According to Fuqua, Pendleton entered the theater toward the end of a showing of “The Suicide Squad,” ran to the back of the theater, and began screaming, “I am the king of this ******* town,” obscenities, and other things. Pendleton then reached into a bag he was carrying, which caused people in the theater to panic and run out. Some movie patrons leaped over a railing, suffering minor injuries. Otherwise, no other injuries were reported. As a precaution, all stores and restaurants in the area were evacuated, including AMC, H&M, and The Cheesecake Factory. (
