Local residents on stranded cruise ship arrive today

Happy Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The Carnival cruise ship that has been stranded in the Gulf of Mexico for days is closer to land this morning, carrying some passengers from Southwest Louisiana.  KPLC's Gerron Jordan is in Mobile, Alabama this morning, waiting for the passengers' arrival.

*Happening today, the ongoing trial of a man accused of beating and raping a 94-year-old DeQuincy woman will resume.  We have the latest on the case prosecutors call "brutal."

*In Abbeville, a teen faces two murder charges this morning.  Police say the 17-year-old killed two brothers Tuesday morning.

*It's Valentine's Day and the return of a Sunrise tradition!  We will have the Sweet Adelines Quartet, "Out of Control," joining us for live performances in the studio.

Make it a Sunrise day!
