Arrest Made in Lake Charles Murder

Posted: Updated:

Good Afternoon.

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Saturday's edition of 7 News at Six.

An arrest is made in last night's murder of a woman at the intersection of Melvin Lane and Alma Lane. Lake Charles Police arrested Dustin Belest Pleasant and charged him with 2nd Degree Murder.

Plus, everyone is still talking about the "Miracle on McNeese Street" after Barbe makes a comeback to beat West Monroe in the 11th hour. With the WIN the Barbe Bucs are now headed to the Dome for Class 5-A State Championship Game. Sam Gannon has an extended look at the highlights right down to the winning touchdown. 

And it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas across Southwest Louisiana with parades on both sides of the Lake. The City of Sulphur is celebrating Christmas Under Oaks. The City of Lake Charles is set to flip the switch on the Christmas Tree at 5:30 p.m. followed by the annual Lighted Boat Parade at 6:30 p.m. and fireworks over the Lake at 8 p.m. KPLC's Gerron Jordan is taking part in all of the holiday festivities and will have a live report as Lake Charles "Lights Up the Lake."

In terms of weather...  will it start feeling like Christmas any time soon? Meteorologist Cedric Haynes joins us with a full forecast.

We hope you'll join us tonight at six for all of these stories and more.
