Breakaway school district bills head to House

Supporters of the proposed breakaway Southeast Baton Rouge School District got another victory today as both Senate bills moved on to the House.  WAFB's Nick Foley will have a live report from the Capitol on 9News at 5.

The man who killed seven people in a drunk driving crash had his sentence reduced from 70 years to 35 years.  Brett Gerald originally had to serve at least 35 years without parole, but now could be out in just under 30 years.  WAFB's Andrew Nomura will have more tonight on 9News at 6.
