MARIETTA, OH — Good morning Marietta. Happy Monday, we have some stories here we think you should know about, some we think are important, others we just like. Shoot me an email sometime and let me know what you think of my morning news lineups.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine talks about police reform: DeWine made a Sunday appearance on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.” He told John Dickerson that there’s a clear pathway to police reform. He advocated for more police training, more body cameras, and hold them more accountable. DeWine called for reforms he said Republicans and Democrats should be able to come together on. He said he’s never met a police officer who didn’t want more training.

A New Jersey man faces child sex crime charges in Washington County: Samantha Cavalli of WTAP reports that 28-year-old Elijah Reid-Williams was arrested this weekend on multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor. Deputies say a 13-year-old girl in Little Hocking met the man on a dating site where he claimed to be 16-years-old. Deputies were able to lure Reid-Williams back to the area using the girl’s social media and arrest him. He’s behind bars in Washington County awaiting a Monday morning bail hearing.

Etta Express sweep the Muskies this weekend: This weekend the Marietta College baseball team won two games to complete a three-game sweep of Muskingum University.

Marietta’s record now stands at 21-3 overall, and they are still first in the conference. The Etta Express plays on the road Monday, May 3, for a doubleheader with Otterbein University.
