Good morning!

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

The suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings could soon see more charges being made against him. State prosecutors expect to charge him separately in the killing of an MIT officer who was shot Thursday night on the school's campus. In addition, federal prosecutors could also add new charges. U.S. officials say the suspect and his brother appear to have been motivated by their religious views. Look for more on this developing case at noon. You can also read more HERE.

In connection with that bombing story, we're going to take a look at K-9 units across the country and how they are beefing up their training. We'll show you how these well trained bomb dogs help police by sniffing out potential threats.

Also today, a story of survival as a Florida boy escapes from the jaws of a cold-blooded killer – an alligator!

In weather, Ben tells me the warmth and humidity is back today, with afternoon highs up to about 82. Showers are expected to develop overnight. What can we expect for our morning commute? Tune in to Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

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