Woman won't serve time in overdose death

A ten-year suspended prison sentence and ten years of probation have been given to an Elwood woman for her involvement in an overdose death three years ago.  Rae-Anna Harting, 30, was charged with dealing a controlled substance.  Harting, who suffers from a degenerative spinal disease, allegedly provided part of a morphine patch to Kayla Davidson, 23, in early October of 2005.  The patch likely led to the overdose that contributed to Davidson’s death according to a pathologist.

Freeway blocked for work

A section of I-465 that extends into Hamilton County will see restricted traffic Thursday as workers repair damage from a crash that occurred Tuesday morning.  The affected section is in the eastbound lanes between Ditch and Spring Mill roads.   The work should be completed by 2:00 p.m., weather permitting.

VP thief sought

The search continues for the thief that held up a New Castle Village Pantry store early Sunday.  Police say a white male around 5’9″ and 175 pounds held up the store at 603 Broad Street.  The incident occurred about 48 hours after a Village Pantry at 2500 Grand Avenue was also robbed.  If you have information on either case call 765-529-4890.
