Jennings couple killed laid to rest in double funeral

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we working on today.

The Jennings couple killed last week was laid to rest today. There is still no suspect or arrest in the deaths of Charles Katrenna Williams. KPLC's Olivia Vidal attended the funeral and will have the latest tonight on 7 News at Six.

Plus, if you were anywhere near Interstate 210 this morning you were likely stuck in traffic depending on which way you were headed. Several wrecks tied up the roadways this morning, including one on the eastbound part of the bridge.

Also a lot of people in the Lake Area took the polar plunge for a good cause this morning. We were there as they braved the cold waters for the Special Olympics.

And the cooler weather didn't stop more than hundred people from running out to the Coushatta Farmer's Market for a 10K/5K run.

Meteorologist Cedric Haynes is also here to tell us how long these cooler temperatures will stick around.

Other stories including: Big Brothers/Big Sisters Bowl For Kids Sake; Read Across America at the Prien Lake Mall; the Louisiana High School Honor Band; and the debut of LaGrange High School's award winning musical.

We'll see you tonight at six for all these stories and much more. Until then we're always online at kplctv.com.

    Sinkholes in the road are an issue all over Lake Charles and a pretty common sight in the Downtown area. Drivers usually have to dodge the cones, especially on Division Street. If you drive down the stretch of Division Street, in between Ryan and Bilbo, you're probably used to avoiding a sinkhole. The most recent one was fixed Tuesday, caused by a cracked drainage line under the street where water seeped out and created a void. “They just go in, cut out a section and pour as...
