Investigation into plane crash in Jennings ongoing

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for 7 News at Six.

A Ragley woman is accused of stabbing a man on Valentine's Day. Wendy Istre, 33, is now charged with attempted second degree murder.

Plus, new information on the crop duster that went down in Jennings last night and claimed the life of an Iowa man. KPLC's Olivia Vidal has more on the investigation into the plane crash.

And  more than 400 people braved the cold weather this morning, including Ken and Austin Andrews – the father and son team from NBC's "The Biggest Loser" Season 11. You'll hear how they are motivating people across the country to get moving.

Also a different event had people running this morning… but for their lives. The "End of the Human Race" had zombies chasing runners. We'll show you why only the strong survived to make it to the finish line.

Writing books for children is a big industry. More than 50 aspiring authors and illustrators of Children's books were at Lake Charles Central School learning the tools they'll need to get their books published.  

The Boat & RV Show may be the main attraction at the Civic Center this weekend, but "Swamp People's"  Gator Queen Liz and daughter Jessica were reeling in quiet a few fans. We caught up with the duo as they sign autographs.

Despite some cooler temperatures this morning it's warmed up to be near perfect outside. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will have your forecast and tell us how long these cooler temperatures will stick around.

We'll see you tonight at six for these stories and much more. Until then, log on to kplctv.com for the latest in news, sports and weather updates.
