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

Attorneys for millionaire Robert Durst, who faces a California murder charge, say his arrest in New Orleans on weapons charges was invalid. At noon, we'll tell you about what they're arguing and about a hearing set for today.

A Jennings man is in custody after investigators say he tried to break into a house on La. 26. A juvenile was home alone when the incident occurred. You can read more about it HERE.

We'll also have a bizarre home burglary story. It involves an intruder choking a homeowner with a bra, and that homeowner fighting back with a chicken! Yes, a chicken. If you can't wait until noon, see more on the story HERE.

Some East Texas cattle ranchers are dealing with a new problem affecting their animals: antibiotic-resistant bacteria going airborne. Find out how they're dealing with the issue at noon, and you can also learn more HERE.
         
Plus, we'll show you a hospital where therapy llamas brighten a patient's day. You can also check out the special animals HERE.

In weather, we can expect a warm, breezy day with afternoon temperatures warming into the low 80s. Rain chances will return late Friday, but what about the rest of the Easter weekend? Meteorologist Ben Terry will have all the details during his live, local forecast at noon.
