Va. woman sentenced for stealing MTR

WHEELING- A Virginia woman has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison for embezzling more than $1.3 million in horse racing funds from Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort, at which she was employed.

Prosecutors say 49-year-old Anita Ambler was sentenced Monday in Wheeling for stealing from Mountaineer in Chester over several years.

Ambler had been convicted in April on 11 counts of mail fraud, 10 counts of wire fraud and four counts of transacting in criminal proceeds.

In addition to her prison sentence, Ambler also must pay back the money and forfeit her estate in Reva, Va., along with a vehicle she bought with the stolen funds.

Man stable following stabbing

EAST LIVERPOOL - A 33-year-old man was in stable condition at Pittsburgh Medical Center Monday after being stabbed during the early morning hours.

According to reports, city police were called by a Fairmont Street resident at 12:34 a.m. about a bleeding man lying on his porch.

Scott Ingram Jr., 33, whose last known address was West Fourth Street, was found bleeding heavily from his chest and leg, and police said he identified the person who stabbed him. He was flown by helicopter to the Pittsburgh facility.

Capt. Tom Clark went to a home at 1300 Brightview Drive, a block from where Ingram was found, with a trail of blood found leading from that home to the Fairmont Street location.

A detective called to the scene interviewed the Brightview Drive homeowner, her son and grandson. Ingram and one of the men reportedly were arguing over a woman when the stabbing occurred.

A folding knife with a 3.5-inch blade was recovered as evidence.

Police are still investigating the incident with no charges filed as of Monday afternoon.
