Teen who killed officer moved from Toledo prison

A man convicted of killing a Toledo police officer has been moved out of a Toledo prison following complaints from the slain officer's family and colleagues.
Robert Jobe was sentenced in 2007 to serve at least 18 years for the shooting death of Detective Keith Dressel. After he turned 18 in February, Jobe was moved to the Toledo prison from a southern Ohio facility with a young-offender program. Prisons department spokeswoman Julie Walburn says the move placed Jobe closer to family.
Dressel's parents signed a petition opposing the placement of offenders near victim families, and Toledo officers wrote the Toledo warden.
Walburn says Jobe was moved again over the past week to a facility in Mansfield in north-central Ohio due to a number of factors, including the public outcry.
