The murder spree of Jeffrey Dahmer transfixed and horrified the nation in the 1990s.  But long before Dahmer became the source for so many lurid headlines, he was a teenager growing up in Bath, Ohio.  It's that story that graphic novelist John "Derf" Backderf put to paper in his acclaimed work, "My Friend Dahmer."  We'll talk to Derf about his work and his high school years spent with Jeffrey Dahmer.  The graphic novel has now been made into a film that is playing currently in limited release.  Then, we'll check in with our Statehouse team for the latest including a delay in a key voter purge case in Ohio.   Plus the effort to restore power after violent weekend storms.
