Lufkin man on trial for child's death

A Lufkin man is facing a jury of his peers and on trial for the brutal death of a three-year-old boy. Francesca Washington has been in the courtroom all day and will be with us live at 5 and 6 to debrief us on today's testimony.

We don't normally do big stories on parking lots, but with thousands heading to the Pineywoods Fair in Nacogdoches tomorrow, we have to. Because patrons will see a lot of changes starting tomorrow at the Expo Center. Donna McCollum explains at 6.

At 4, we'll show you footage of a man attacking a lawyer after losing his court decision. Problem is, it was his own attorney!

Nearly 13,000 runners took part in the annual Portland Marathon on Sunday. But for two of them, the race represented a different kind of "starting line" as they said their "I do's" mid-course. Shaley Sanders has that coming at 4.

At 5, we'll tell you about a group of retired veterans and active-duty troops who are leading a campaign to sign military personnel up as "conscientious objectors."  We'll explain coming up in just a bit.
