Good morning!

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

The man convicted of killing one man and trying to kill another is sentenced today. We'll tell you how much time David "Dice" Fontenot will spend in jail for the murder of Stephin Bergeron. You can read about it at http://bit.ly/1mE2NvX.

An incredible story out of Texas – a mom saves her 2-year-old from a dog by biting the dog's ear off! Wow! We'll have more at noon, and you can see at http://bit.ly/1iLwOXv.

Also today, a new report says relieving pain after a workout with ibuprofen could lead to severe health issues. We'll hear from doctors and athletes about the dangers. You can read about it at http://bit.ly/1ifB7pn.

Plus, an 8-year-old boy saving up for a video game system decides to use the money to make sure his neighbors have smoke detectors. Read about it here http://bit.ly/1k6ERxT.

Ben tells me after all the dense fog of the morning, we can expect sunshine with highs into the lower 80s by this afternoon. How long will this dry, warm pattern last? Check out Ben's live, local weather at noon for the answer. Our seven-day forecast can be viewed at http://bit.ly/1cs5ZBR
