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

Friday Afternoon Headlines

This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom. 

The case has gone to the jury in the double murder trial of Jeremy Lee Brown in Allen Parish. We'll soon find out if the jury believes Brown killed his mother and step father.

And Southwest Louisiana veterans have been waiting for years for a medical clinic in our area. A mobile clinic opened its doors today on 9th street in Lake Charles. Services will be available three days a week. Many of the aging war veterans say it's about time something was done so that they don't have to travel great distances to get the care they need.

And hurricane season starts one week from today. Are you thinking about buying a generator for your home? We'll show you how you can stock up this weekend on supplies without paying state sales taxes.

The holiday weekend is going to be warm but there should be enough wind to make it feel somewhat comfortable outside even during the heart of the afternoon. Temperatures through Sunday will be warm with highs near 90 degrees and lows in the low 70s. But the humidity will make it feel more like the mid 90s during the afternoon hours; use caution and drink plenty of water if you are going to be outside.

Coming up on 7 News at Six Sports, LSU Baseball looks to stave off elimination again in the SEC Tournament; we'll have highlights from their re-match with Mississippi State. The LSU Softball team is just two wins away from a date in the College World Series; we'll take a look at one of the biggest reasons why. We'll look back at how the UL Softball team got to within one victory of the College World Series with their shut out of defending National Champ Arizona State. Plus, we'll take a look at the biggest no-show in Saints OTA's.

All that and more coming up today on Live at Five and 7 News at Six.
