Police say suspect confessed to killing

        Police say a New Baltimore man told police in July that anger and exhaustion drove him to kill his former girlfriend, Dawn Flick, a member of the family that owned Flick's Home Like Inn restaurant.

        Patrick Leonard, 30, made the taped statement to police hours after he was arrested on charges of fatally shooting Ms. Flick, 22.

        The statement was discussed Monday during a pretrial hearing before Judge Mark Schweikert in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.

        Ms. Flick was found dead at her New Baltimore home July 29. Her father, Les Flick, killed himself the next day at Flick's Home Like Inn.

        If Mr. Leonard is convicted of aggravated murder, he could face a death sentence.
