There's major change in the wind for medical programs now being offered on college campuses in Evansville. Programs at Ivy Tech, USI and UE will all be combined and expanded on a new college campus at a still un-selected location in Vanderburgh or Warrick County. Ivy Tech Chancellor Dan Schenk says his school is ready. USI and UE leaders also told a crowd at a "letters of intent" ceremony that they're on-board for the multi-million dollar project that will move their medical programs to a new IU Medical School campus.

Closing arguments will begin Monday in the murder trial of former State Trooper David Camm. He's accused of killing his wife and two young children inside the family's southern Indiana home in 2000. Prosecution and defense experts testified Wednesday on whether blood from Camm's wife ended up on his T-shirt from gunshot spatter, or when he reached over her body in the family's SUV to pull out their son. This is Camm's third trial. His two previous convictions were thrown out on appeal.
