                A young Indiana woman has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for the death of her 3-year-old daughter who ingested fentanyl. Makaylee Opperman of Evansville made a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent resulting in death and conspiracy to distribute a drug. Kamari Opperman died in 2021 after swallowing fentanyl pills found inside a nightstand, according to police. Two other children survived overdoses after receiving treatment. Authorities at the time said more than 5,000 fentanyl pills were found inside Opperman's home. Defense attorney Jon Humphress asked for leniency, along with mental health and substance abuse treatment.

                Indiana's Republican attorney general can continue his investigation of an Indianapolis doctor who spoke publicly about providing an abortion to a 10-year-old rape victim. The girl had traveled from Ohio after its more-restrictive abortion law took effect this summer. A judge on Friday rejected an attempt to block Attorney General Todd Rokita's investigation of Dr. Caitlin Bernard. Rokita alleges Bernard violated child abuse reporting and patient privacy laws. Bernard denies wrongdoing. The same judge also ruled Friday in a separate lawsuit that Indiana’s abortion ban adopted in August violates the state’s religious freedom law. The Indiana abortion ban was already on hold because of another legal challenge.

                Members of the United Auto Workers union appear to favor replacing many of their current leaders in an election that stemmed from a federal bribery and embezzlement scandal involving former union officials. Reform-minded candidates are leading in multiple key positions with about 84% of the vote counted. Many challengers campaigned on rescinding concessions made to companies in previous contract talks. That could raise costs for General Motors, Ford and Stellantis, and almost inevitably will drive up already expensive auto prices. With tallies from six of nine UAW regions counted, incumbent President Ray Curry had a small lead over international union official Shawn Fain. Curry had 38.4% of the vote to Fain's 36%. The race likely will go to a runoff.

                Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has been hospitalized for treatment of pneumonia but his office says he is responding well. Holcomb's press secretary said Friday the 54-year-old governor was diagnosed with pneumonia after going to a doctor on Thursday believing he was ill with the flu. Erin Murphy says that “out of an abundance of caution" Holcomb was admitted to the hospital. Murphy didn’t immediately respond to questions about where Holcomb was hospitalized and how long he could remain there. Holcomb had been scheduled to travel to southern Indiana for an awards presentation on Friday, but the event was postponed for a week.
