Dentist who killed wife says 'I had all I could handle' and 'I'll miss her'

Happy Friday, everybody. Hope you have a great weekend planned!

In the meantime, here's some of what we are working on for you in the KLTV7 newsroom this evening:

First, we've got more on the story of the ETX dentist who killed his wife in their home last week. His arrest affidavit has been released and details the evening's tragic events. For example, Dr. Nichols stated to police that his wife was arguing with him about his habit of 'staying gone' every Friday, drinking with friends, etc. You can read the whole affidavit online, and we'll tell you more about it at 5.

Some court-related news to report to you. If you have jury duty on Monday, we've confirmed the jury for the 369th judicial district court in Rusk has been canceled. That's in Cherokee County. Again, if you are a potential juror for the 369th judicial district court in Rusk on Monday, so do not report.


The Red Springs Volunteer Fire Department responded to a grass fire that spread to a home this afternoon. The home was destroyed and other structures were threatened. More at 5.

Tyler Junior College is looking for full-time and part-time faculty and staff. The college will host a job fair to help former employees of Long Morris College. Lon Morris went from 130 employees to eleven in their recent closing. We'll give you the details on the job fair at 6.


And on the web, you won't believe this story: 'Miracle mom' wakes up to find out she had a baby. 

We hope you'll join us at 5 and 6 on your tv or livestreaming on!

We'll see you soon!
