Good morning!

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

A former McNeese student in jail for murder in Texas could be freed today. There's a hearing involving Bernie Tiede – the subject of the Jack Black movie "Bernie" – and we'll be following that closely at noon. You can also read more HERE.

A former Lake Charles therapist makes a plea to charges related to alleged misconduct with a patient. 

How would you like to lose weight while still eating the foods you enjoy? There's just one catch, you have to make a sacrifice twice a week.

Plus, a visually impaired 10-year-old takes part in her first triathlon, which includes a 100-yard swim, a three-mile bike ride and three-quarter mile run. We'll share her inspirational story.

Ben tells me our forecast remains unchanged through tomorrow with more heat and humidity and not much of a chance of rain. However, things will change later in the week. What's brewing on the horizon? Check out Ben's live, local weather at noon for the answer, or you can get the latest weather conditions HERE.
