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.

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.
