Student charged in stabbing death of former girlfriend
(2007-04-13)
(WOUB) - Authorities say a student at Hocking College in southeast Ohio is charged in the stabbing death of his former girlfriend.

Ronald Hendrickson the Second of Dayton is in the Franklin County jail in Columbus today, charged with murder.

Authorities say Hendrickson and Jodi Marie Blankenship had broken up six weeks ago -- but the 21-year-olds still shared a house in Nelsonville with three other Hocking College students.

Nelsonville police Chief David Redecker says the pair argued early yesterday, and Blankenship, who was from Burton in northeast Ohio, was stabbed with a folding pen knife.

Redecker says Hendrickson also was stabbed. He was arrested after being treated at a Columbus hospital.
