Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.
A man charged in the 2005 murder of his stepdaughter goes on trial today. Wilson Locke allegedly killed Serebia Dean at a home on 7th Street in May 2005. Originally, he was found to be insane and spent several years at the Feliciana Forensic Facility. However, he has been found competent to stand trial, and this morning opening arguments began.
Also today, a university in Iowa is trying to help keep girls interested in science. One method that's being used – letting kids scrub up for surgery! We'll explain how the program works.
Plus, we've all seen the FEMA trailers following hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Now, we'll show you how an architect has plans to make them better. It's an easy-to-build, easy-to-ship home built without tools!
We're expecting a strong cold front today, and Ben tells me it will bring much colder temperatures by tonight. There's also a wind advisory in effect for gusts up to 30 to 30 MPH. How low will the temperatures go tonight? And what about the rest of the work week? Ben will have the answers in his live, local forecast at noon.

Also, we'll have an odd story out of Arkansas -- a woman was booked on a DWI charge after trying to drive off in a toy truck. Read about that HERE.
