A verdict could come this evening for an African-American high school teacher from Central on trial in Southeast Missouri. She accuses police and Wal-Mart shoppers of aiming slurs at her, but police say she turned violent. We'll have a live report.
From Livingston Parish we have another one of those "how dumb can you be?" cases. Deputies say it's a case of a man and his eight-months-pregnant girlfriend staging a burglary and then leaving a string of clues.
The man named as a codefendant with prominent Baton Rouge attorney Michael Cutshaw has turned himself in. Sam Moore gave himself up on sex charges against a third man.
Remember the high roller Ponchatoula man accused of running a Ponzi scheme? He's free on $150,000 bail, which some prosecutors may consider extremely low.
