Join us for 7 News at Noon!

Good morning everyone!

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

A hearing for the man accused in the disappearance of UL Lafayette student Mickey Shunick is happening in Lafayette. Brandon Lavergne was seen walking into the courtroom this morning, and you can read more about the case as it unfolds HERE.

Also today, he's the world's largest service dog – sparking smiles with his wagging tail. But we'll show you how this dog is more than what meets the eye. His big stature is raising big money for cancer research.

Plus, the latest in the battle against Alzheimer's disease. There is a new test that can tell you if you have it, and it's giving at-risk families some peace of mind.

In weather, Ben tells me sunny skies this morning will give way to scattered showers and storms later today. Before that rain cools us down, expect temperatures in the low 90's. What about our weekend? Well, Ben is working on those rain chances now and will have a full, live, local forecast for you at noon.

Remember, you can watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have great day and a wonderful weekend!
