WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is kicking off his final rally ahead of Indiana's primary with more endorsements from local sports greats. Trump was introduced in South Bend tonight by former Purdue basketball coach Gene Keady (KAY'-dee) and former Notre Dame basketball coach Digger Phelps. Trump has also been endorsed by former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz and former Indiana Hoosiers basketball coach Bob Knight. The Republican front-runner is hoping a decisive win in Indiana tomorrow establishes him as the party's inevitable nominee.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The sister of a man who died after police repeatedly used stun guns on him says charges will not be filed against the officers. Linwood Lambert's sister says the Halifax County prosecutor doesn't believe there's enough evidence to bring criminal charges against the police in South Boston, Virginia. The decision comes three years after Lambert's death, which gained attention last year when videos were released showing the officers using their stun guns on him even after he was restrained in handcuffs and put in the back seat of the patrol car.

BALTIMORE (AP) — A man has pleaded guilty to setting a liquor store on fire during riots in Baltimore last year after the death of Freddie Gray. A plea deal calls for the 22-year-old man to get five years in prison and pay $350,000 in restitution. Prosecutors say one of the store's owners was hurt when he jumped from the second floor to escape the blaze. Firefighters rescued an unconscious person from the basement.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter says the force would consist of about 4,000 troops and will likely be further discussed at a NATO meeting in June. Russia has accused the U.S. and NATO of returning to a Cold War mindset, though it continues to buzz U.S. ships and planes in the Baltics.
