Tuesday opinions
Court of Appeals of Indiana
Matthew A. Shrock, Jr. v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms the findings that Matthew Shrock was guilty but mentally ill on two counts of Level 5 felony battery resulting in bodily injury to a public safety official. Finds the evidence does not lead only to the conclusion that Shrock was insane at the time of the offense.

Jacob L. Wilson v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Jacob L. Wilson’s murder conviction. Finds that, given Wilson’s confession, he was not significantly prejudiced by evidence that he committed other uncharged crimes, even if the Gibson Circuit Court mistakenly admitted the evidence. Also finds no fundamental error.

In the Matter of Paternity of C.V.P.; Catherine Eseosa Obaseki v. Correy Vaughn Pflug (mem. dec.)
Juvenile paternity. Affirms the order denying mother Catherine Eseosa Obaseki’s motion for relocation with minor child C.V.P. Finds the Vanderburgh Superior Court’s judgment that the proposed relocation was not in the best interest of the child is amply supported by its findings and the evidence presented.
