JASPER - Indiana State Rep. Dennie Oxley, whose District 73 seat covers much of Perry County, remained hospitalized Friday at  Memorial Hospital and Healthcare Center in Jasper, area media and another state representative said Thursday.

Oxley was hospitalized after he missed the General Assembly's Organization Day on Tuesday. State Rep. Russ Stilwell, who was attending an event in Spencer County Thursday night and had spent several hours at the hospital with Oxley's family, said his fellow legislator's condition was serious.

Oxley is a freshman representative elected last year, succeeding his son, Dennie Oxley Jr., in office when the younger Oxley ran for lieutenant governor.
