Ohio tavern to reopen after slaying of its owner

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — A popular suburban Cleveland restaurant will reopen this week with a limited menu after the slaying of its owner.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports that (http://bit.ly/1n3QYP6 ) Brennan's Colony will reopen Tuesday for drinks only, but customers can bring in food from area restaurants. The tavern's kitchen is expected to reopen Friday with a limited menu.

The announcement comes about three weeks after the tavern's owner was shot during an attempted robbery at his establishment. Police say 61-year-old Jim Brennan died at a hospital following the June 30 shooting.

Two sets of brothers have pleaded not guilty to charges in connection with the shooting. Authorities say one of the men had worked for the slain owner for about a month.
