Sidney suspect taken to hospital

The Associated Press

        SIDNEY, Ohio — A man accused of killing three teen-aged girls and a Bible study teacher was taken from jail to the hospital Wednesday.

        According to the Sidney Daily News, a log kept by medics who responded to the jail indicated Lawrence Michael Hensley was taken to Wilson Memorial Hospital for seizures. A hospital spokeswoman would only say Mr. Hensley was treated there.

        Lt. Larry Music of the Shelby County sheriff's office said a doctor checked Mr. Hensley, did blood work and gave him medication. He was returned to the Shelby County jail.

        A message seeking further information was left for Shelby County Sheriff Mark Schemmel.

        Mr. Hensley, 30, of Sidney, is accused of killing neighbor Sherry Kimbler, 16; her cousin Tosha Barrett, 16; and their friend Amy Mikesell, 14, at his home July 8. Another young woman survived. Authorities say Mr. Hensley then drove to the home of Bible study teacher Brett Wildermuth, 37, and fatally shot him.

        Five days later, Mr. Hensley wounded a motorist, fired a shot at the home of another Bible study teacher and took three hostages before surrendering, authorities say.

        Mr. Hensley has pleaded not guilty to charges of four counts of aggravated murder, three counts of attempted aggravated murder and three counts of kidnapping.
