Police: Ohio Kin Spat Spills Human Ashes From Urn
LORAIN, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio man has been accused of bashing his brother over the head with a cremation urn, breaking the urn and creating a cloud of human ashes.
Police say officers responding to a domestic-violence report in Lorain on Friday saw Joel Perez threaten to kill his brother and smash the urn against his head, knocking him unconscious.
Officers say Perez fought them when they tried to arrest him and they zapped him with a stun gun before taking him into custody.
Cleveland's WEWS-TV said Monday that Perez has been charged with domestic violence, felonious assault and resisting arrest.
Perez is in custody and can't be reached for comment. There's no telephone listing for him at the address given by police.
It's unclear what the brothers were arguing about or whose ashes were in the urn.

Oklahoma interstates open, but traffic slow moving
May 21, 2013 14:39 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Officials say all of the interstates through the tornado-ravaged areas of Moore and Oklahoma City are open, but traffic is moving slowly.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports portions of Interstates 44 and 35 that were shut down after Monday's deadly tornado were reopened about 10 p.m. Monday.
Capt. George Brown says all lanes of I-35 through Moore are open, but that traffic has slowed to a crawl where the tornado crossed the interstate. Heavily damaged homes and businesses can be seen on both sides of the north-south thoroughfare.
Interstate 44 west of Moore also was shut down Monday because of downed power lines across the roadway.
The OHP reports there are 68 roadblocks still set up within the city of Moore and that travel in the area is discouraged.
