Don's Miss 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.

Today was supposed to be sentencing day for Bryce Perkins – the man convicted in the shooting death of Marine Daniel Gueringer at a party back in 2009. However, the defense has raised some questions and that sentencing has been postponed. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt has been in the courtroom all morning and will have our update on what's happening with the case at noon.

Also today, stem cells have many uses in science. They're credited with amazing results in rejuvenation which is why they're being used in the fight against wrinkles. We'll explain what's involved in this new "stem cell makeover."

Plus, the sluggish U.S. economy takes a toll on homeowners, and households are lagging behind when it comes to financial preparedness. While it's not easy to plan for your financial future, we'll give you some tips to get started.

If you like how the weather has been lately, Ben says don't expect a whole lot of change.  Right about the time of our show, the highs should be around 90, but will there be any afternoon showers to cool us off? Ben will have our odds on that as well as for the rest of the week. In the meantime, you can always access weather info HERE.

Remember, in addition to watching us on TV, you can watch us at kplctv.com each and every weekday. If you choose to watch us online, here are a few other stories that may interest you:
