Judge Denies Bail For Man Charged In July Fourth Slayings

CLEVELAND (AP) - A judge denied bail Saturday for a city firefighter charged in the shooting deaths of three people in what police said was an apparent dispute over fireworks at a Fourth of July party at his neighbor's house.

Terrance Hough Jr., 35, stood handcuffed and expressionless in Cleveland Municipal Court while his attorney, Tim Riley waived his client's right to a preliminary hearing and asked for a reasonable bond.

But Judge Emanuella Groves agreed with prosecutor Gayle Williams' argument that Hough should be held without bond out of concern for community safety.

Afterward, Riley would only say that Hough's family "extends its deepest sympathy to everyone involved in this terrible tragedy."

Police at the scene said the shooting about 12:10 a.m. Thursday apparently was prompted by anger over fireworks and a loud party at the house of Hough's neighbor.

Hough, a 12-year veteran of the fire department, is charged with three counts of aggravated murder in the deaths of Jacob Feichtner, 24, a University of Akron student who lived at the house where the party was taking place; Katherine M. Rosby, 26, of Lakewood; and Bruce R. Anderson, 30, of Parma.

Public records show Hough has permits to carry concealed firearms. Police recovered seven handguns, including the one investigators say was used in the shootings, and five long guns, from his home.

Hough's wife, Regina, had called police several times between 2003 and 2005 complaining about loud noise, drugs, underage drinking and problems with neighbors, police reports show. Cleveland police visited several times.

    Tyrod Taylor is the present, and Baker Mayfield is the future, but what would happen if, say, Taylor suffered an injury in Week 2? Would Hue Jackson automatically turn it over to Mayfield?
