Good Morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom preparing for 7News@Noon.

Today we're continuing to follow the trial of Seth Arceneaux.  Arceneaux is accused of causing the fire that burned down Millennium Park in Lake Charles. This morning the former Lake Charles Fire Prevention Chief testified that investigators determined the fire was arson because there was no other ignition source. Jurors have also been hearing testimony from a police detective who conducted a video interview with Arceneaux. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt is in the courtroom and will provide updates for our show at noon.

Also today, you may be able to help Lake Charles Police find a couple of suspects in a Monday morning robbery. The crime happened on South Bank Street and a victim there was attacked with a cutting instrument and struck on the head. We'll have descriptions of the suspects.

In health news, we'll show you how the same power source for video games is being used to fight cancer.  Powerful computers are now part of clinical trials to make radiation treatments more effective.

Speaking of cancer, we have a heartwarming tale of a six year old boy who wants to make a huge difference in his dad's fight against the disease. He's opened up a lemonade stand at his home and he's already raised thousands of dollars. It's a wonderful story that you won't want to miss.

Plus one woman's passion for recycling is being passed on to children.  You'll see how a new curriculum is focused on teaching children to recycle all sorts of material before they form bad habits.

Ben tells me the rains are winding down for today. You can find out what's in store for the next few days in his full forecast at noon.

We hope you join us, and have a great day everyone!
