INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An advocate for victims of domestic violence said her group reached agreement Thursday with Indiana officials over funding for the private agencies serving them, but a state official denied there was a deal.

MONROE, Mich. (AP) — Prosecutors in Michigan say they’ve charged an 18-year-old woman with causing a false police report to be filed after she was reported missing and found a day later.

FRANKLIN, Ind. (AP) — When local middle school students sit down for lunch, cafeteria monitors watch for brightly colored aluminum cans full of sugar and caffeine. Soda machines at most area middle schools are kept off during the school day, and while some teens are allowed to have a diet soda with lunch, others can’t bring any kind of soda to school, principals said. Highly caffeinated energy drinks, such as Monster or Red Bull, are banned at all local middle schools. Greenwood and Franklin middle schools both started creating their official and unofficial caffeine policies about two years ago, when Monster and other...

She says the campaign tells truths about Islam and Jihad that the U.S. government and mainstream media ignore. All the ads feature a disclaimer that says the viewpoints are not endorsed by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Under a federal court ruling, the...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A state senator at the center of this year’s legislative gay marriage battle is being honored by the conservative Indiana Family Institute. Republican Sen. Mike Delph of Carmel was named lawmaker of the year by the group Thursday night at a fundraiser in Carmel. Gov. Mike Pence also headlined the fundraiser.

Social and religious conservatives fought unsuccessfully to put a ban on the...

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — The lawyer for an Indiana man who pleaded guilty to fatally stabbing and shooting a fellow Purdue University student is expected to try to convince a judge that his client is mentally ill. The sentencing hearing for 24-year-old Cody Cousins of Warsaw is set for Friday afternoon in Lafayette. Cousins pleaded guilty to murder last month for the Jan. 21 attack during which 21-year-old Andrew Boldt of West Bend, Wisconsin, was killed inside a classroom filled with students on the West Lafayette campus. His attorney says he’ll ask the judge to rule Cousins guilty but mentally ill. Under state...
