Murderer's (Alledged) Row

According to Yahoo!, Canton, Ohio, is naming a street after the O'Jays:

"Councilman Thomas West has proposed renaming a portion of Mahoning Road in tribute to the singing group that got their start in Canton. The council discussed the idea Monday night and could vote next month. One business was concerned that people would think the street was named after Simpson, acquitted of the 1994 murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman. West agreed to change the request to The O'Jays Boulevard instead of O'Jays Boulevard."

The cross streets are Robert Blake Street and Phil Spector Avenue.
