7 from 7: Stories for your Friday

Good Friday afternoon, everyone! We hope your week has been wonderful and that you are looking forward to a great weekend with friends and family.

In the meantime, here are some stories for you to peruse this afternoon:

1. First, let me just say that you guys have the absolute cutest (and funniest, sometimes) kids in Texas. Check out this slideshow of your children in their finest Easter attire. 

2. Investigators with the San Augustine County Sheriff's Office are hoping that surveillance video will help them catch the suspect in the March 17 murder of 62-year-old Kavy Neil Sowell. Sowell was found dead by firefighters with three gunshots in the back of the head inside his burning home. Further investigation revealed that Sowell had been shot before his house was set on fire.

3. An Arizona mother accused of leaving her children in the car while she went on a job interview was actually working and had a home address, the Maricopa County Attorney said. Many had rallied behind her, applauding her for doing what she had to do to find work and believing she was homeless, even raising over $100,000 for her. Now the story has changed.

4. An East Texas man who drowned after his boat overturned Wednesday has now been identified. Kaufman County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Johnny Adams said the body of 42-year-old Darin Karl of Kemp was discovered in Cedar Creek Reservoir by Texas Game Wardens around 12:45 p.m. Thursday.

5. As the last bit of the sunken ferry's hull slipped Friday beneath the murky water off southern South Korea, prosecutors and police sought arrest warrants for the vessel's captain and two other crew members in the maritime disaster. 28 people are now confirmed dead and more than 270 are still missing.

6. The State Department is giving federal agencies more time to review the Keystone XL pipeline before deciding whether to issue a permit.That could push a decision about the controversial oil pipeline until after the midterm elections in November.

7. Easter 2014 events around East Texas: We've got a list of where you can take the little ones to go on egg hunts and more!

Here is the link to our livestream so you can join us for the news online live at 4, 5 and 6 if you aren't near a tv today.

We'll see you soon, and we hope you have a very blessed Easter!
