Wounded Warriors get big gift from high-schoolers

At 10 tonight, Maegan Prejean will bring you the story of an East Texas school which took it upon themsleves to do their part in showing appreciation for our military veterans.

At 6, Shaley Sanders tells you about the testimony of a 10-year-old boy testifying against his own uncle, who is accused of killing a three-year-old boy.

Healthy Nacogdoches is raising the bar when it comes to taking care of your body. Today, it announced a weight-loss challenge. Nacogdoches will be competing against surrounding counties to lose weight. Donna McCollum explains at 6.

At 4, we'll show you a football coach who is charged with child abuse after allegedly knocking out a seventh-grader on his son's opposing team. And we'll show you the disturbing video.

And we never get tired of showing you something like this: the tear-jerking reunions of military officials coming home to surprise their families. Today at 4, you'll see an 8-year-old boy get the surprise of a lifetime!

A tragic story out of Longview: a mother and her 11-year-old daughter were killed yesterday in their duplex; their names are LaToya Reese and her daughter's name is Mya. We'll have the latest on this tragic story coming up this evening at 5.

Also at 5, we'll tell you about the discovery of a body near 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway's Colorado home. Jessica has been missing since she left for school last Friday.
