California Manhunt Over?

Good evening. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC newsroom. The horror that allegedly started with a Los angeles police officer may be over tonight. CNN sources are reporting that a body found in a California cabin may be that of fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner. The cabin went up in flames this evening after a gun battle in which another police officer was killed. We'll have the latest tonight at ten.

And President Barack Obama is urging a divided Congress to boost job creation and strengthen the middle class through a package of government-backed proposals. It was all part of his State of the Union address. The President is also calling for an increase in the federal minimum wage.

And of course, we'll bring you the sights and sounds from Mardi Gras here in Southwest Louisiana. It went off without a hitch, despite the threat of rain for most of the day. Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton will tell us what the rest of the week will look like, as temperatures cool down.  Hope you'll join us tonight on 7news Nightcast.
