Lake Charles man facing charges for shooting dog

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in for Cynthia. Here's a look at what we are working on today.

An 18-year-old Lake Charles man is facing charges of killing a dog. It happened last week at a home on 18th Street. We'll tell you why he's also facing a long list of other charges.

Plus, there are more questions surrounding the homicide investigation on 5th Avenue. Lake Charles Police not saying much about the investigation, other than the body of a 22-year-old woman was found early Saturday morning.

Two murder trials began today. One in Jeff Davis Parish, where a 27-year-old Rosalyn Breaux is facing murder and attempted murder charges. She's pleaded not guilty. KPLC's Erika Ferrando will have an update from Jennings.

In another courtroom in Calcasieu Parish, Jury selection began in the trial of Jose Manuel Garcia-Guevara. He's the illegal alien brought back to the U.S. to face charges in the 2008 death of Wanda Barton. Authorities say Garcia-Guevara stabbed Barton to death in her home in front of her four year old son. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt has been in the courtroom all day and will have the latest.

And the "Monday blues" weren't so bad thanks to the sunny skies. Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton tells us how long the nice weather will stick around.

We'll see you tonight at Five & Six for these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
