2. A sharply divided Supreme Court ruled Monday that some companies with religious objections can avoid the contraceptives requirement in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, the first time the high court has declared that businesses can hold religious views under federal law. We'll hear what locals have to say about it tonight on East Texas News.
3.  A Nacogdoches County grand jury has indicted a pair of Nacogdoches teenagers who allegedly killed an 8-year old Australian Cattle Dog in a satanic ritual. According to the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Department, Mark Tyler Ainsworth, 17, of Nacogdoches, and Delaney Walters, 18, of Douglass had been studying satanic rituals.
