For publication opinions today (3):

In In Re: The Marriage of J.D.S. and A.L.S.; M.S. v. A.L.S., a 7-page opinion, Chief Judge Robb writes:

M.S. (“Grandmother”) appeals the trial court's order dismissing her Petition to Modify Grandparental Visitation. Concluding the trial court properly dismissed her petition, we affirm. * * *

M.S. (“Grandmother”) appeals the trial court's order dismissing her Petition to Modify Grandparental Visitation. Concluding the trial court properly dismissed her petition, we affirm.

In Richard M. Clokey v. Penny M. Bosley Clokey, 9-page opinion, Judge Riley concludes:
Based on the foregoing, we conclude that the trial court did not abuse its discretion when it awarded Penny $2,000 a month in incapacity maintenance.
In Mark E. Croy v. State of Indiana , a 9-page opinion, Sr. Judge Barteau writes:
In this case, Cox testified that she and Croy had “lived together like husband and wife” for four years prior to the end of the relationship. In addition, Croy told the jury that although he and Cox had ended their relationship before February 14, 2010, “we both still lived and remained in the same household.” Croy kept personal property at Cox's home and still considered it to be his residence. Furthermore, Cox and Croy still shared a bedroom. This evidence is sufficient to demonstrate that Croy and Cox had a spousal relationship at the time he confined and attacked her. Therefore, there is sufficient evidence to sustain Croy's domestic battery conviction.
