Man faces sentencing in officer’s killing

INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man who provided a loaded handgun to a career criminal who used it to kill a police officer has been sentenced to 57 months in prison.

An indictment says Eric Jenkins provided a handgun to Thomas Hardy, a convicted felon who used it to shoot Indianapolis police Officer David Moore during a January 2011 traffic stop. The 29-year-old Moore died three days later. Hardy pleaded guilty last year and was sentenced to life in prison without parole. State prison officials say Hardy was on parole and had been erroneously released from jail weeks before Moore’s killing.

Mellencamp’s teen sons face charge

BLOOMINGTON — Rocker John Mellencamp’s two teenage sons are facing battery charges for allegedly punching and kicking a man during a fight that left the victim with serious facial injuries.

Monroe County prosecutors on Thursday charged 19-year-old Hud Mellencamp of Nashville, Ind., and 18-year-old Speck Mellencamp of Bloomington with one count each of battery resulting in serious bodily injury. Nineteen-year-old Ty A. Smith of Bloomington faces the same charge in the July 29 attack.

Court documents say Speck Mellencamp punched 19-year-old Alexander Bucy in the face on the porch of Bucy’s Bloomington home because he thought Bucy had hit him earlier that evening.
