Good morning!

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

An intruder picked the wrong house when he came up against a determined elderly woman. He tried to rob and choke her, but she got him with a pot of boiling water! Then she asked him what kind of mama raised him! Yes. Watch for that story at noon, and you can read more about it HERE.

The founder of an animal rescue group in Louisiana has been arrested after authorities say they found her 3-year-old daughter walking barefoot in animal feces inside their home. Deputies say they also found animals in poor health. Look for the story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Also today, we will tell you about a breakthrough for people with heart problems. Pacemakers have been lifesaving, but they can prevent you from getting a crucial MRI scan when injured or ill. Now, there’s a new medical device that changes things for the better.

Plus, a man is reunited with his lost love – a vintage Corvette stolen in the 70s! We have been following this story for a while now, and today, we’ll show you how the car was delivered right to his doorstep.

Ben tells me we've had some fairly comfortable weather so far today, but get ready for the humidity to return. As that moisture comes in, we may see some isolated afternoon showers, but those rain chances will be a little higher tomorrow. Just what can we expect? Tune in at noon for Ben’s live, local forecast for the answer.

Remember, if you’re away from the TV at noon, you can always tune in to kplctv.com to watch us online and your mobile device.

Have a great day everyone!
