Family of two people charged in Batiste murder speak out

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here on a very chilly morning with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*Family members of two Lake Charles men accused of murder say they were only trying to defend their mother and sister.  You will hear these new developments in the investigation of Anthony Batiste's death and why they are fighting to clear the names of their children.

*It is a true story of an American hero - a highly decorated Navy SEAL sacrifices his life to rescue an American hostage in Afghanistan.  Find out what went down in the rescue operation.

*Who is most likely to live past the age of 100?  Those findings will be shared this morning on Sunrise.

*Stars of the Louisiana hit reality show "Duck Dynasty" are putting their fame to a good cause, helping to save the state's disappearing wetlands.  We will tell you about a lithograph and print to raise money.

*Child counselor, Scott Riviere, will be in the Sunrise studio for a live interview about the best gifts to promote the spirit of the season with your family and how to keep kids on a routine during the break.

Make it a Sunrise day!
