Good Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*Investigators in Jennings are continuing their search for answers this morning after two bodies were found in a home Sunday afternoon.  Gerron Jordan will have a report from the scene about the two alleged victims - a husband and wife - reportedly found dead in a bed and bathtub.

*Today is the deadline for a developer to agree on a deal with the City of Lake Charles about the old Sears retail site.  We'll update you on the progress made after a verbal agreement with developer, Roger Landry.

*Oil giant BP could be forced to pay the largest environmental fine ever for its role in the 2010 oil spill disaster.  A trial is set to begin in federal court today in New Orleans to determine BP civil liability and billions are at stake.

*In Washington, Congress comes back to work today.  This week, we'll find out if they can compromise and avoid drastic cuts.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry has your pinpoint forecast, including rain on this Monday.

Make it a Sunrise day!
