The state reverses a decision, and clears the way for a new, Liquor Locker to open at Riverside and Bedford, close to the Glenwood Leadership Academy. The Indiana Alcohol & Tobacco Commission approved the transfer of a license, that would allow a replacement for what had been an Apollo Liquors store that recently closed. The Vanderburgh County Alcohol Board voted last month to deny the transfer, after hearing from area residents, who said the old store attracted problems that included underage drinking, prostitution, panhandling, and burglary.

Neither the state nor the defense objects when a jury asks to take a closer look at the t-shirt that David Camm was wearing the day his wife and two young children were killed. The shirt is a key piece of evidence in Camm's third murder trial. The state says it was splattered with blood when he killed his family in their southern Indiana garage. The defense disputes the claim. The judge granted the jury's request to study the shirt and more than 20 other pieces of evidence. The case went to the jury Tuesday night. The jury requested the new look at evidence today.
