Good morning!

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

A 32-year-old Anacoco man faces seven counts of attempted second-degree murder. Vernon Parish authorities say a domestic disturbance apparently led to the suspect setting a mobile home on fire. We'll have more at noon, and you can read more HERE.

In Alabama, officers performing a welfare check on a 78-year-old Alzheimer's patient found the woman had been living with the body of her dead husband for weeks. Look for that story at noon, and you can see more HERE.

Also today, the Wings of Freedom Tour is set to land in Lake Charles. Unique and rare treasures from aviation history will be on display at the Lake Charles Regional Airport. Ben will join us from there live during both the Midday and Noon shows today. Ben, John Bridges and I are also working on some special segments about these planes, and you can look for those later today on kplctv.com.

While he's out there, Ben will also have all the information you need on today's weather. He tells me we should see some sun mixed with clouds today as our temperatures climb through the 60s and into the lower 70s. Tuesday looks to be a totally different story with more rain expected. What are our chances of rain tomorrow? And what about a cold front coming through mid-week? Get all the answers during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

Plus, meet the New Orleans police detective who is becoming a Facebook sensation – all because he's got all the right moves! 

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

    A group of boys are taking their love for baseball off the field and into the backyard. And no, this isn't a scene out of the 1993 classic "The Sandlot." It’s happening right here in Lake Charles.

    At the David household, there's something special going on in the backyard.

    “One day in the backyard we came out here and decided to start playing around,” said Dylan David, who started a Wiffle ball league with his friends.
