Decades of civil rights murder case back in spotlight

The murder of 14 year-old Emmitt Till is recognized as one of the major turning points of the push for the civil rights movement.  The gruesomeness of the crime is cited as one of the reasons people from all walks of life started taking more of an interest in what was happening to blacks in the southern part of the country.  Tonight at 10, we share with your something you won't see anywhere else in East Texas: a conversation with some of Emmitt Till's family members.  Those family members tell Rosalyn Anderson with our Raycom sister station WLBT what they feel should be done to the woman who now admits she told the lie that led to Emmitt being kidnapped, beaten and murdered.

Tonight at 10, Taylor Hemness has a new Crimefighters report for you.  He's highlighting a case that Tyler police say should be a cautionary tale for all of us.

Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will have your Valentine's Day forecast at 10.
