Dallas County woman confesses to killing her father...

Thursday - July 28, 2011

Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am!  But first, a word about tonight's news at 10.
Imagine worrying yourself sick over a missing relative - only to find out the entire time you've been pressing a missing person's search - he was dead.  Then you find out his daughter has confessed to his murder. But there's still no body.  Tonight we unravel the last part of a real-life murder mystery.
Now, on a much lighter note, a Montgomery architect and his company want to transform the old Kress building on Dexter Avenue into an entertainment and residential facility.  And, they have some grand ideas for the grand old building in the heart of one of the city's most historic neighborhoods.  We'll give you a behind-the-scenes look at the interior of the building!
The judge in the state house corruption trial did not drop the charges against any of the defendants as defense attorneys had asked.  So now it's on with the defense's witnesses.  We're not sure how many they'll call.  If it's as many as the prosecution, we could be hearing this case into October.
And, eight of the best bass fishermen in the world are in town fishing on the Alabama River for a $100-thousand grand prize in the Bassmaster competition.  They shove off bright and early tomorrow morning and will be back for the weigh in each afternoon.  All at Riverfront Park downtown.
Plus a slightly revised weather forecast for the weekend...
Gotta put the finishing touches on the newscast.  See you on the set at 10!
