INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Emergency responders in Indianapolis have been treating people who've overdosed on drugs or substances laced with bug spray. Indianapolis firefighter Scott Lebherz says some people searching for a greater high have been spraying heavy-duty insect spray on marijuana, tobacco and even banana leaves, and then smoking or ingesting it. He says users enter a 45-minute high that leaves them nearly catatonic while exposing themselves to chemicals designed to kill insect pests.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana's governor says he'll be calling state lawmakers back for a special session in May after the Republican-controlled House and Senate reached last week's adjournment deadline without taking up a number of key bills. Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb said Monday he wanted the session to focus on tax issues and providing additional money for school safety.

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a central Indiana woman to 120 years in prison for fatally stabbing her young children hours after her husband filed for divorce.
