CLEVELAND (AP) — An Ohio man suspected of killing his mother by hitting her with a vehicle on Christmas Day has pleaded not guilty to charges including aggravated murder.
Thirty-five-year-old Vincent Varone, of suburban Cleveland, remained held on bond of $1 million after his arraignment Wednesday. He also is charged with murder and felonious assault.
