Killer's complaints

Good morning!

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

Convicted killer Brandon Scott Lavergne has filed a handwritten complaint about his living conditions at Angola. Lavergne was convicted in the death of UL student Mickey Shunick. At noon we'll tell you what else he's doing – or not doing – in prison.

Also today, changing what your children watch on TV may change their behavior. We'll tell you about a new study that claims young children who saw movies or television shows containing violent scenes became more aggressive than those who didn't.

Do you eat a lot of processed meat? You  may want to re-think that because of some new research that links it to both cardiovascular disease and cancer.    

Plus, what if there was a way to customize those sales alerts that fill up your email inbox?  Well, now there is and we'll show you how it works.

We had cold temperatures again this morning, but Ben tells me we'll get into the upper 60's today, with a big warm-up expected to start Friday. How's our weekend shaping up? Well tune in for Ben's live, local forecast at noon. Also, if you're in the Sulphur area this evening you may want to drop in at the Walgreens on Beglis Parkway from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The weather team will be out there to program NOAA Weather radios.

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