DARLINGTON, Ind. (AP) — A man from Indiana and a woman from Iowa were identified Wednesday as the victims of a weekend plane crash in central Indiana.

The single-engine Diamond Katana DA40 aircraft departed from Lift Academy, a flight school in Indianapolis, and crashed about 50 miles away Sunday.

The two people on the plane were identified as Benjamin Corbet, 21, of Franklin, Indiana, and Kristen Green, 28, of Swisher, Iowa, police said.
