Good afternoon! We hope you're staying warm on this ridiculously chilly and windy spring day.

Here are a few stories for you to peruse this afternoon:

1. Rigoberto Martinez and Zury Hernandez got into a fight on Sunday, police say, and during the altercation, Martinez intentionally punched his infant son, held by Zury Hernandez, in the face. Then, both adults fled the scene...without the baby. Both are in Nacogdoches Co. jail; the infant was taken to Nac Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries, according to police.

2. Megan Huntsman, 39,  was clear about what she did with six of her newborn babies. She told police she either strangled or suffocated them immediately after they were born. She wrapped their bodies in a towel or a shirt, put them in plastic bags and then packed them inside boxes in the garage of her home south of Salt Lake City. What is not clear is why.

3. KLTV Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says we will continue to see a chance for scattered storms throughout the day; some could even be severe. The major threat with these storms will be large hail and heavy rain. East Texas will remain under a "Slight Risk" for severe weather until 7 a.m. on Tuesday. Read more here.

4. An East Texas man is dead after police say his girlfriend shot him twice in self defense. Harrison County authorities received a call around 7:50 on Monday morning from a caller saying she shot her boyfriend, 51-year-old Marc Mathison, twice. We'll tell you more about this story on East Texas News at 6 p.m.

5. The National Weather Service in Shreveport has confirmed that wind damage on Sunday afternoon near Pittsburg was indeed caused by a tornado.

6. Sadly, a one-vehicle accident killed three Paris, TX teens around 12:47 a.m. Sunday. DPS says that the 2006 Chevrolet pick-up truck the teens were riding in was speeding on Farm to Market Road 906 just south of the Texas-Oklahoma state line, before it ran off of the road, hitting a tree.

7.Law enforcement officials are searching for a suspect in a hit and run that left an elderly East Texas woman hospitalized. The woman is in critical condition in a Tyler hospital. Unfortunately, police do not have a description of the vehicle at this time, but security video from area businesses is being reviewed. Anyone with info on this hit and run is asked to call the police at 936-594-2505.

Here is the live stream on our website so you can catch our news at 4, 5 and 6 on your computer in case you're not near a tv this evening.
