Memorial set for husband of Ohio woman hurt by thrown rock


MASSILLON, Ohio (AP) — A memorial service for the husband of an Ohio woman severely injured when a 5-pound rock was thrown from a Pennsylvania overpass onto her car has been scheduled for Friday at a funeral home in northeast Ohio.

Authorities say 55-year-old Randy Budd died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Uniontown home Saturday.

His wife, Sharon Budd, underwent numerous surgeries for her injuries from two years ago. She remains impaired and needs help with daily tasks.

Four men were convicted and sentenced to prison in the case, which attracted national attention.

Pennlive.com reports the Union County prosecutor in Pennsylvania says the men bear responsibility for Randy Budd’s death.

Paquelet Funeral Home in Massillon is handling the service.
