INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana House has approved a measure that would repeal Indiana's ban on Sunday carryout alcohol sales. The bill by Rep. Ben Smaltz of Auburn passed Tuesday on an 87-10 vote. It now moves to the Senate, which past a virtually identical bill on Monday. Both measures would allow stores to sell carryout alcohol on Sundays between noon and 8 p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An Indiana Senate committee delayed voting on legislation targeting hate crimes. The move by Senate Corrections and Criminal Law committee Chairman Mike Young comes after an emotionally charged hearing on Tuesday. Young says time is needed to work on changes to the bill. Indiana is one of just five states without laws against crimes motivated by biases such as race, gender and sexual orientation.

CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) - The Indiana Court of Appeals has declined to dismiss murder and other charges against a northwestern Indiana man in connection with the 1980 shooting death of a police officer killed while working a private security job. The court denied James Hill's motion to dismiss charges Jan. 17. The court says Hill failed to demonstrate he was prejudiced by the state's decision to file charges 36 years after the shooting death of Hammond Officer Lawrence Pucalik.

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - Police say one man is under arrest after two burglars crashed an SUV into a central Indiana gun store and stole a number of weapons. Anderson Police Maj. Joel Sandefur says an 18-year-old Anderson man was apprehended Tuesday in Muncie. Police believe at least one other suspect remains at large.
