A walk through today's emotional testimony in the Sandusky trial

Good afternoon, everyone; hope you're having a good Monday!

Today in the newsroom we're working on these and other stories for you:

Testimony continued today in the Sandusky trial as the prosecutor's final witness, the mother of an accuser, sobbed on the stand. Then it was Sandusky's attorney's turn; they began by calling witnesses that they hope will convince the jury that Sandusky is not a pedophile. KLTV's Lexie Cook will walk you through today's testimony tonight at 5.


Then we'll tell you what the U.S. Drug Czar says about whether or not we need a federal ban on the so-called "bath salts" drug. Have you heard about this? Bath salts are banned in more than forty states, but are still sold at some gas stations and convenience stores. When taken as drugs, they are said to induce paranoia, hallucinations, and even violent behavior. More on that at 5.


We'll also tell you about a local company, Jen's Pop Shop, and how they will be a part of the Daytime Emmy Awards soon! Our Jamey Boyum visited with Jen today and will share what she had to say at 5.



At 6, some East Texas homeowners are now armed and on the lookout after burglars burst through their doors in their neighborhood. About six attempted burglaries have happened in the past two weeks in the Laneville area of Rusk County. KLTV's Jena Johnson visited with some residents in the area; one told her she was home and got a glimpse of the burglar's truck.

We'll also update you about the young boy who survived being hit by a car as he and his older brother were riding their motorbike in Cherokee county last week. Little Davion survived, and is now out of the hospital. His brother did not survive. More on Davion's condition tonight at 6.

And KLTV Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto is back with us tonight, and will update you on the very latest weather conditions around East Texas and the nation tonight at 5 and 6pm.

We'll see you soon!
