Jury selection continues in the state house corruption trial

Monday - June 6, 2011

How'd you make it through this incredibly hot day? Whew!  It was a scorcher.  Rich Thomas will update ANY rain chances we may have over the next seven days - starting tonight at 6.

Hundreds of people are in the jury pool for one of the biggest trials in recent memory.  Nine defendants are accused of breaking several federal laws in connection with an alleged scheme to buy votes for pro-gambling bills at the state legislature.  We'll take you to the courthouse for a LIVE report on how the first day came and went.

A toddler from Dale County is the target of an amber alert.  We'll tell you the circumstances of his disappearance.

State foresters are as busy as they've ever been....trying to stay one step ahead of a growing number of wild fires threatening thousands of acres of woodlands and some houses, too.  We'll show you how they're battling the blazes in blazing hot sun.

And, is it the end of the road for the Tide baseball team's post season?  Their back was against the wall this morning going into the conclusion of a critical game delayed by weather yesterday.  We'll tell you how it played out against Florida State in sports.

Hope you'll make your plans to join us at six...in your air conditioned home!

See you on the set,

Bob H.
