Good Monday morning! Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom getting ready for today's 7News@Noon.

Sending sexually explicit pictures of himself lands a Sulphur man in jail.  We just got the details from Vinton Police Chief Fox who came by the station.  

What if we told you that you could find out if your partner was cheating on you by using their DNA?  Would you want to know?  Well, there is a new trend in DNA testing, and while it can be useful to help determine family traits, there is that side of the testing that can let out other secrets.  We'll tell you how it's being done.

Plus, it can be hard finding that just-right pair of shoes – but imagine if you were the country's tallest man – finding any shoe that fits at all would be awesome.  We'll show you how the perfect fit equates to a mighty expensive pair of shoes.   

Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma has appealed his season-long suspension under the NFL's bounty investigation. Vilma's appeal states the NFL has not presented evidence linking him to a system in which players were paid to injure opponents. It asks the league to provide documentation, including witness statements. For more on the story click here.

Ben says we're beginning the week just about where we left off – warmer temperatures and mostly sunny skies.  However, there is a chance of rain coming back into the forecast.  Ben is finalizing his forecast as I type and will have all the information you need to plan your week ahead. 

If you travel downtown, there's another road project you need to know about. It involves a portion of Bilbo Street as reconstruction work begins around the new Transit Building project.  How large of an area is involved, and how long will the work last?   The answers coming up. 

Remember if you're looking for more local news and up-to-the minute local weather information, tune in either online at kplctv.com or on-air. 

We hope you have a wonderful day!

    With only weeks until the July 6 implementation of tariffs on American goods, soybean farmers in Louisiana are already feeling the impacts. But for some farmers, it may be harder to make ends meet.
