MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana Governor Mike Pence and hundreds of police officers were among the mourners at Nick Schultz's funeral Monday in Merrillville. Others in the crowd included the slain police officer's Franklin College football teammates, who wore their jerseys to the service.

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - The family of a teenager who died in the back of a police car two years ago is suing the city of Anderson for $1.5 million. Their lawsuit says officers left 17-year Jace Zook alone for an extended time. Authorities say the teenager who was suspected of an attempted break-in strangled himself using a seat belt.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A federal appeals court in Chicago has continued a stay on same-sex marriage in Indiana until the U.S. Supreme Court addresses the issue. That means gay couples hoping to get married in Indiana will have to wait. Gay marriage is on the high court's agenda for a closed-door conference later this month but it's unclear if the justices will decide then whether to take it up.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana's Commission for Higher Education is creating a database on former college students who never graduated in hopes of finding ways to get them back in school. Officials say more than 700,000 adults in Indiana have some college but no degree. The Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne campus tried to encourage students to return by offering half-off tuition this semester. About 100 enrolled in the comeback program.
