Good afternoon, everyone! We hope your day is going well!

Here are some stories for you to check out today:

1. An East Texas man is behind bars on charges of kidnapping and human trafficking after police say he tried to sell a woman for drug money. He was apprehended at his mother's house in Upshur County.

2. The Upshur Co. district attorney has filed notice to seek the death penalty against Sarah Haslam, the woman police say was involved in the December 2012 slaying of 27-year-old Ronnie Gammage of Longview.

3. Is creation a viable model of origins in today's modern, scientific era? That's the question being debated by the founder of the Creation Museum, Ken Ham, and Emmy Award-winning science educator Bill Nye on Tuesday night at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY. We will livestream the debate at this link tonight beginning at 6 p.m. CST.

4. The sweeping farm bill that Congress sent to President Obama Tuesday has something for almost everyone, from the nation's 47 million food stamp recipients to Southern peanut growers, Midwest corn farmers and the maple syrup industry in the Northeast. The president is expected to sign the bill on Friday.

5. The Food and Drug Administration is using ads depicting wrinkled skin on youthful faces and teenagers paying for cigarettes with their teeth in a campaign to show the nation's young people the costs associated with smoking. The agency is launching a $115 million multimedia education campaign called "The Real Cost" that's aimed at stopping teenagers from smoking and encouraging them to quit.

6. Hungry? It's almost dinner time; here's this week's Dinner in 10 recipe from Mama Steph - one pan spicy tomato pasta.

7. The United States Department of Justice will now open an investigation into the death of Jasper native Alfred Wright. Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee made that announcement late Monday, nearly two weeks after filing a petition with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

We hope you'll join us on the livestream on kltv.com this afternoon if you're not able to watch East Texas News at 4. 5 and 6 on your tv today. We're with you everywhere you go! (Even on our free mobile app! Watch us live there, too.)
