Not the hunt he was hoping for

 A hunter who was only trying to get a lease ready for the upcoming deer season made a very interesting discovery over the weekend: 47,000 marijuana plants. Michelle Reed has been in Polk County all day and will bring you updates to this startling story at 5 and 6.

 Also at 6, Leigha Hughes brings you coverage of the murder trial of Aspioun Jones, who is accused of killing her husband by stabbing him in the heart. While Jones admits to killing him, she claims it was self-defense.

Could allergies and driving be as bad as driving under the influence? Maleeha Kamal explains how that could by possible at 6.
