State Agriculture Dept. under fire following audit

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in tonight for Cynthia with a look at what's coming up on 7 News Nightcast.

A state agency that helps those in need is under fire tonight. A new audit says the State Agriculture Department comes up short when it comes to overseeing a federal program sending supplies to food banks across the state. We'll break down the allegations.

Plus, it's been four years since we met Max Berwick and his mom Laci. Max suffers from MMA, a rare disease with no cure. Tonight, KPLC's Britney Glaser has an update on the DeQuincy boy's struggle to survive and how you can help.

Also, how beer, an argument with her husband and a ceramic squirrel land a South Carolina woman in jail on Christmas.

We'll see you tonight at Ten. Until then, we're always on at
