Crazy or legally insane?

Authorities have determined a Lufkin woman who tried to drown her six-year-old daughter is not crazy, but legally insane. Meaning she avoids prison but will be in custody for a long time. Michelle Reed explains at 6.

Also at 6, Caleb Beames reports back from Corrigan, where a skeleton crew is on hand following the large fire at the Georgia-Pacific plant on Saturday.

A Nacogdoches realtor has a new respect for life. His heart stopped beating while playing basketball.  the staff and students at SFA, with the help of a fellow player, worked together to revive him. Donna McCollum was there today when gratitude was expressed and has that story for you at 5.

In 2011, we told you about Deacon Garay of Palestine. He died from head trauma at the hands of his abusive step-father. Earlier this year, that man, Billy Hazel, was convicted of deacon's murder. Hazel was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. But Melanie Torre, who has been following this tragedy for nearly three years has learned that there's more to the story. We'll have that for you at 10.
