Bernie juror not happy

A man who sat on the jury which sentenced Bernie Tiede to life in prison is not happy Tiede is out of prison. At 5 and 10 tonight, Caleb Beames brings you an interview with Kent Birdwell, who wants to know why the district attorney agrees Tiede should be freed from prison.

At 10, Leigha Hughes brings you our special report. You'll see shocking surveillance video from an East Texas school which shows a group of boys beating another boy to the point of unconsciousness. We'll also bring you testimony from the victim and his mother, who just want bullying to stop.

As mental illness cases continue to grow, Angelina County officials have found a way to get a handle on the matter. Maleeha Kamal brings you that story at 6.

Also at 6, Donna McCollum looks into the case of a Nacogdoches man accused of leaving his two children, one a sick six-month-old child strapped in a car seat in a closet, home alone.

And you'll meet Monster, a sweet Yorkshire Terrier ready to be your forever friend.

And at 10, we'll explain how a Lufkin music minister found himself being shared by tens of thousands around Facebook in a video which is going viral.
