Woman stabbed in Jennings, man in custody

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for 7 News at Six.

Jennings Police are reporting a woman was stabbed shortly after noon. We're told a man is in custody for the stabbing and the victim is in stable condition at a local hospital.

Plus, we've received word a man was struck by lightening near Lacassine. We'll have details on what happened.

Also can we expect any more severe weather? Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will have your Mother's Day forecast.

Also it's the last full weekend of Contraband Days. KPLC's Olivia Vidal is there as first responders take the "Firefighter Challenge." We also catch up with Jean LaFitte and his band of pirates. Hear why they say they have no plans of leaving the City of Lake Charles.

We hope you'll join us for these stories and more tonight at six. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
