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

An armed robbery in Singer has Beauregard Parish authorities offering a reward for information. It happened at a store on Highway 27 around 7:15 on Tuesday night. Take a look at a surveillance video picture of the suspect HERE. Do you recognize the person? We'll have details at noon.

Is Jason Reeves intellectually disabled? The testimony continues in a hearing to determine whether the convicted child-killer will be put to death. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt is following the case and will have an update for us at noon. You can also read more HERE.

Also at noon, a follow-up to one of my all-time favorite stories: the friendship between a little boy and a World War II vet. They used to live next door to each other, but now they remain in touch through visits. It is incredibly touching.

Plus, the World Health Organization says young people who use devices such as iPhones unsafely are at risk of losing their hearing.

In weather, you can expect a high temperature well into the middle to upper 70s. Enjoy that warmer weather now, because things are changing beginning Wednesday night. Showers and storms are on the way -- not to mention much colder temperatures. When will it all arrive? Meteorologist Ben Terry will have all the answers during his live, local forecast at noon.

Remember, if you're away from the TV, watch us live at http://bit.ly/1lCk0p5 or through the KPLC News and Weather Apps for Apple or Android devices.

Have a great day!
