Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 8 NFP)

For publication opinions today (1):

In Brian Scott Hartman v. State of Indiana , a 5-page opinion, Judge Darden writes:

In this interlocutory appeal, Brian Scott Hartman (“Hartman”) appeals the denial of his motion to suppress a statement he made to the police regarding his involvement in the death of his father, Brian Ellis Hartman (“Father”). * * *

Here, as in Person, Detective Pullins did not re-initiate the interrogation. Rather, Hartman initiated further communication by asking whether the search warrant had been served and whether anything had been found, and then told the detective that he wanted to speak with him. Detective Pullins readvised Hartman of his Miranda rights, which Hartman said he understood, before Hartman made an incriminating statement, and Hartman waived these rights. The trial court did not err in denying Hartman’s motion to suppress this statement.
