Good morning!

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

Convicted triple murderer Armonta Hadnot learns his fate today as his sentence is handed down. We'll have the story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Also today, a bizarre case made for Hollywood. It involves a skin care expert for stars who is now charged in a murder for hire plot.

Plus, new concerns about Internet privacy. We'll find out why some are worried that Google Glass users may have the ability to steal your password.

A big concern over brown pelicans in our state is garnering attention these days. We'll take a look at the final island in Cat Bay in Plaquemines Parish that is providing a nesting place for the birds. Back in 2010, four islands in that area were coated in crude oil from and there were problems before the spill. Are we looking at the last generation of pelicans in Cat Bay? Look for the full story at noon, and you can see more HERE.

Ben tells me we're back into the heat of summer and some of us are already dodging showers and storms. We’ll see more storms later today with some of them capable of producing heavy downpours, cloud-to-ground lightning and even some hail. Will we see the pattern continue tomorrow? Be sure to tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answer. You can also check out the latest weather conditions HERE.

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!
