35-year-old Danny Johnson was sentenced Friday to life in prison for the strangulation death of 46-year-old Cathleen Howatt at the camp along the Scioto River near West Mound Street. Johnson was convicted of murder, domestic violence and tampering with evidence. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
