Join us today for 7 News at Noon!

Good morning everyone! Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Back in February a jury couldn't decide on a verdict in the second degree murder trial of Devin Badon.   He was charged in the death of Stephin Bergeron.  Today, however, Badon himself has made a decision that will determine his future.  KPLC's Theresa Schmidt has been following this case and will provide our update at noon. 

Also today, a man serving his country has given one last sacrifice so that four other people can continue their lives.  He donated his organs, and one of those families has been able to pay their respects to the sailor's widow.  We'll have this uplifting story about a true gift of life – four times over.

Plus, kids escape their hospital rooms for a night of fun.  They get to dress up in ball gowns and suits, and enjoy each other's company outside of the beeping machines and ever-present doctors. 

Many of us experienced a bit of rain this morning, but what about this afternoon?   Ben is busy putting together his forecast, but he did tell me rain chances are likely to carry over into Tuesday, but those chances begin to decline after that.  He's also looking into the tropics and what may be lurking in the Gulf.  He'll have all of that up-to-the-minute info at noon, and you can also go HERE for radars and more while you're on the go. 

In Saints news, the appeals hearing for four players in the bounty program has begun.  You can go HERE for more on this developing story.  

Remember, you can watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. 

Have a great day!
