INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Financial documents obtained by The Associated Press show Indiana House Speaker Pro Tem Eric Turner made about $8 million selling nursing homes the last two years.

Turner's lobbying to kill the moratorium will be the focus of a House Ethics Committee hearing next week.

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana man already facing the death penalty has been sentenced to 65 years in prison. A Floyd County judge has sentenced William Gibson III for the 2002 murder of Karen Sue Hodella. Gibson was sentenced to death last year for killing another woman in an attack in New Albany in 2012. He faces a June trial in the death of a third woman.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Proposed Indiana education standards to replace Common Core are getting mixed reviews from education experts and officials. A panel of education and business leaders will vote Monday on whether to send the standards to the State Board of Education for final approval or to ditch them.
