Good morning!

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

The Third Circuit court of Appeal affirms the life sentence of a man who killed a U.S. Marine from Lake Charles.

Also today, if you're planning to fly over the upcoming holidays, be mindful that luggage scales that decide if you'll pay an overweight charge may not always be correct.

You can also find other consumer news on our website. For instance, you may not realize it, but there are some household items, like your laser printer, that could be invading your privacy.  Check it out HERE.

Plus, for 45 million people in the U.S. allergies can be deadly. From bee stings to penicillin and peanuts, researchers have made a discovery they hope may one day end violent reactions.

In weather, Ben tells me we can expect intermittent showers through the day, with higher rain chances later in the afternoon and into the evening as the cold front arrives. Thursday looks to be a chilly day – how cold will it get? Find out during 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!

    Patient safety is paramount in hospital settings and traditionally, it has taken one-to-one care 24/7 for some of the most at-risk patients. KPLC's Britney Glaser shows how a new video monitoring system is keeping patients safe and freeing up nursing staff for other duties.
