1) Landlord can wait until she is behind on rent;
2) Once she is, then she can be evicted from the apartment just like any other tenant who is behind on rent, regardless of whether she is incarcerated or not (with the only difference being the need to serve her in jail, possibly);
3) Once this is done, then the property may be recovered, and any of her belongings not taken out by her family or friends (with her written authorization) may be disposed of under Indiana §§ 32-31-4-1 et seq (see here
, and scroll down to Indiana).
There is no special privilege to miss rent even if in jail. However, she continues to "occupy" the apartment until she misses rent and is evicted, even if in jail.
