Tuesday Afternoon Headlines

This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom.  

You may recall the rowdy brawl that was posted online a couple weeks ago between two Sulphur girls and one of the girl's mother in the background allegedly egging on the fight. Well now apparently, the mother has been charged and cited for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. We'll have more on the case against 36-year-old Mendy Benoit.

And more testimony from the Davis and Saltzman murder trial. The FBI's foremost expert on cell phone technology took the stand today with damaging testimony against the women. 

And tonight at six, we begin a new series of reports on the hundreds of foster kids looking for a forever family in the Lake Charles region.  

Our chance for rain will increase through Wednesday; this will help to keep our afternoon temperatures a little cooler and help with the lack of rainfall. Tonight fog looks likely in areas that got rainfall earlier today; lows will drop into the upper 60s. Wednesday we will have a 60 percent chance of rain; thanks to a cold front moving into our area.

Coming up on 7 News at Six Sports, we'll have an update from this afternoon's Regional baseball game between Barbe and Catholic. We'll also catch up with the McNeese State softball and baseball teams as they get set for the stretch drive of their seasons. Plus, we'll take a look at a piece of Cowboys Athletic history.

Join us for 7 News Live at Five and 7 News at Six.
