Venue to change - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Venue to change

KPLC News Director Charlie Haldeman is substituting for Cynthia Arceneaux tonight.

The pending trial of a former Lake Charles doctor will be moved elsewhere after a judge's ruling today.  Peter Lafuria faces more than 250 charges of video voyeurism, sexual battery and molestation of a juvenile.  The case has dragged on for years and continues to proceed through the system.

Two topics have been put on the front burner after last week's massacre in Connecticut:  Gun control and mental healthcare.  This evening, a look a both as Congress considers new measures and health professionals talk about low insurance reimbursement rates for mental healthcare.

Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton says more humidity is back, temperatures are warmer than before, but look out for Christmas.  Rain looks likely next week.

See you on TV.
