The investigation into the killing of a local pastor in his church this past Friday continues. So far, no motive has been established, but this morning, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso said there are allegations of some sort of relationship between the victim and the suspect's wife. KPLC's Gerron Jordan is there. Look for more on this developing story at noon. You can watch Mancuso's briefing HERE.

Also today, we check the progress of the man with the first bionic leg controlled by his own mind! Find out how his efforts could mean a different life for other amputees.

Plus, advice on finding your nap nirvana. Experts who study the science of sleep recommend a few tips to maximize your snooze.

In weather, Ben says intermittent showers are possible at any point during the day. Under those mostly cloudy skies you can expect temperatures to only rise into the 80s. What can we expect the rest of our work week? And what about the tropics? Ben will have all the answers during his live, local forecast at noon.
