Good morning!

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

A convicted killer is sentenced in Lake Charles today. At noon, we'll tell you how much time Mark Wayne Thibodeaux will spend in prison for the murders of Bridgette Pryor and Carla Ledoux and the attempted murder of Joseph Newman. You can also read more on the story HERE.

Also today, a new dental breakthrough is reducing the need for both the drill and x-rays – resulting in pain-free visits.

Plus, check your wallet. Chances are you're still holding on to gift cards you received over the holidays. Some estimate about 44 billion dollars in unused gift cards are currently collecting dust - enough to pay off all our credit card debt!

Ben tells me a dry cold front arrives today bringing with a wind advisory until 6 this evening. Tonight our temperatures are expected to dip into the upper 30's. What about tomorrow? Check out Ben's live, local weather at noon for the answer.

Perhaps a kitty psychologist can help a cat that's gained Internet fame for an attack on his family! Lux, the 22-pound cat, is getting an appointment soon with a counselor – yep, a cat counselor. Look for the story at noon, and HERE you can read about how the cat's family felt under siege – even calling 9-1-1 for help!

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