Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

An investigation continues into the discovery of a couple found dead inside their home in Jennings on Sunday. Jennings Police report a 4-year-old child was also inside the home, but was not injured. So far, the victims names have not been released.

Also in Jennings, the Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's office is reporting the arrest of a registered sex offender who was found to have a 4-year-old child living at his residence.

Many American workers have been hard hit by the sluggish economy, but today we'll meet one woman who's working six jobs to make ends meet! Find out why she's not complaining about her situation.

Plus, plastic surgery is on the rise. We'll tell you which popular cosmetic procedures are spurring the most interest.

In weather, it looks as though we're in for another stormy Monday. Ben tells me this round of storms around lunchtime are due to the cold front pushing through south Louisiana.  Once the rain ends, colder temperatures will return. How cold will it get? And will we be dry for the rest of the week? Answers to those questions will be found in Ben's live, local forecast at noon. In the meantime, you can always check HERE for the latest weather information, 24/7.

There's also an interesting story of two people together for more than 60 years, leaving this world together. A sad story perhaps, but apparently the husband's sense of humor served him, and as it turns out, his daughters as well. You see, he died on the way to the viewing for his beloved wife, and how the family handled it is sure to bring a smile to your face.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!

    With only weeks until the July 6 implementation of tariffs on American goods, soybean farmers in Louisiana are already feeling the impacts. But for some farmers, it may be harder to make ends meet. Soybean farmer, Carl Habetz, said he's blessed to be an established farmer, otherwise he would suffer more consequences from these tariffs.  "It's harder on young farmers than it is for me because I've been established for a long time, but it's still difficult," Habetz...
