Good afternoon, everyone. Are you ready for another cold night? (you might want to cover your plants while you're thinking about it!)

Here's some of what we're working on in the newsroom this afternoon:

Heather and Larry Maples (Source: Facebook)

First, our Melanie Torre has been working today to get more details in the tragic case of the murder of Heather Maples, allegedly killed by her husband Larry at the home of Moses Clemente. Moses Clemente was also shot, but survived. The Maples' were separated at the time of the shooting over the weekend. Melanie will tell you more tonight at 4 and at 6.

At 5, Dr. Ed Dominguez will join us to discuss a new report by researchers who say they've found that smokers face a longer healing time for broken bones than those who do not smoke. Not a day or two longer, but weeks, the report says. Dr. Ed will fill us in on those findings, which may just encourage  you to give up your smoking habit.

At 6, a local sports bar is facing the loss of its liquor license after TABC investigated its actions last summer when a man was killed on their property. We'll explain what that might mean for the bar and what bar owners are required to do in similar situations, tonight at 6.

And Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto will join us at 4, 5, and 6 to fill us in on tonight's freeze. Get those plants and pets protected, friends! Join Mark for your most accurate local weather so you'll know exactly what to expect.

Here's the link to our livestream on can watch our news live at 4, 5 and 6 on (or on our iPhone and android app, as well!) We're here for you.

We'll see you soon,
