Wild weather recap, murder arrests, and plenty more

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

A Christmas Even homicide in Ragley is still under investigation by Beauregard authorities.  We learned today of two arrests related to the case.  Two women are charged with second degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.  Jerry Stover, 53, was shot to death in his front yard and Beauregard authorities say they believe the motive is "domestic related."

Southwest Louisiana escaped most of the wild weather, but other parts of the state didn't.  The National Weather Service today confirmed two EF-1 tornadoes touched down.  One of those was in Tioga and the other in Alexandria.

Meteorologist Cedric Haynes is calling for below normal temperatures for much of the rest of the week, and a slight possibility of active weather this weekend.  If you'll remember, Cedric called for a slight chance of winter precipitation in our northern parts of the viewing area.  Sure enough, we had a few reports of light snow flurries.  I know when Cedric makes a prediction now, it's time to pay attention.  We'll see what he says in a few minutes on 7 News Live at Five and tonight on 7 News at Six and Nightcast at 10.  You can also check us out any time at www.kplctv.com

See you on TV.
