We look at the news affecting Greater Cincinnati and the Tri-state.

The fallout from the texting case involving five Cincinnati City Council members continues with a heated council meeting, and the release of a recorded deathbed statement from Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman's late wife Pamela, chastising Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld.

After 50 years in Cincinnati, Shriners Hospital for Children announces it will likely move its operations to Dayton, Ohio, by the summer of 2020. The hospital has treated burn victims from across the country and other nations.

And after spending 25 years in prison, a Northern Kentucky man who killed his entire family and then held his classmates and a teacher hostage at gunpoint is up for parole. The incident happened five years before the shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss this week's top stories are, from the Cincinnati Enquirer, political columnist Jason Williams (@jwilliamscincy), health reporter Anne Saker (@apsaker), and breaking news reporter Cameron Knight (@ckpj99); and WVXU reporters Ann Thompson (@annthompsonwvxu) and Jay Hanselman (@JayHanselman).
