Good morning!

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

The man accused of killing a local pastor in front of his congregation makes a plea today. Woodrow Karey is set to go on trial in September. Look for the story at noon, and you can read more about this morning's proceedings HERE.

Also today, a woman discovers a tribute to a fallen Marine at a flea market. We'll have the story of how she took the time to bring the tribute flag to the hero's mom.

Plus, see how two energetic, four-week-old Visayan Warty pigs show off their running, jumping and climbing skills at the San Diego Zoo.

Ben tells me we should expect afternoon temperatures in the middle 90s with a heat index around 105. As the afternoon progresses, a few isolated storms will be possible. Storm chances should increase late into the evening. What about tomorrow and the rest of the work-week? 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!
