Friday Afternoon Headlines - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Friday Afternoon Headlines

Hello everyone.  This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom. 

We'll have more testimonies from the Davis-Saltzman murder trial. Today the state is using cell phone records to suggest that Robyn Davis is lying about her whereabouts the day after her husband went missing.

And we all know how post offices around the country are in jeopardy of shutting down. U.S. senator Mary Landrieu visited the Moss Bluff Post Office, which is one of the facilities that could be on a possible "hit list."

And one more try for the Keystone XL project. Transcanada submitted a new application today. This time, they changed the route to avoid environmentally sensitive land in Nebraska. Will this step satisfy the President's concerns about safety? 

This is Wade at the weather desk; tonight will be warm and muggy with temperatures only dropping into the lower upper 60s north of I-10 to mid 70s at the coastline. Thanks to high pressure above us rain looks unlikely for the next few days. With that said I cannot rule out one or two showers developing; but the chance for rain will be a slim 10 percent.

Coming up on 7 News at Six Sports, we'll have an update from this afternoon's Class B and C State Track Meet. We'll also preview LSU Baseball's big showdown with Ole Miss, which begins tonight. We'll have updates from McNeese State baseball and softball games. And we'll preview the Louisiana Swashbucklers' match-up tomorrow night against the Richmond Raiders.

Those stories and more coming up today 7 News Live at Five and 7 News at Six.
