Good Thursday evening. Here's a look at a few of the stories we're working open here in the WAFF 48 newsroom.
We're on top of breaking news in Huntsville this evening. We've confirmed that two people have been found dead in the Pinecrest Apartments on Patton Road near Drake Avenue this evening. We're told that two men were found dead during a welfare check today. WAFF 48's Charles Molineaux is on the scene and will have the very latest on this developing story at 10.
We're also checking into the possibility that Huntsville might be in line to develop Boeing's new 777X airplane. Word today from Boeing headquarters in Seattle that because of a union debate involving the machinists union, the company is looking to produce it's new airplane at another location. We're investigating to see if Huntsville might be in line to take over the production of that new plane.
And don't miss a WAFF 48 Special Assignment involving the lengthy amount6 of time it takes for people on Alabama's Death Row to be brought to justice. WAFF 48's Margo Gray spoke exclusively with the parents of one of the victims of the so-called "Cell Phone Murders" in Huntsville in 1998. 4 people were shot and killed execution-style, and two others were injured over a stolen cell phone. Nicholas Acklin and Joseph Wilson were convicted of the killings, but their trials have been delayed by legal motions. We'll hear from the parents of one of the victims, Charles Hemphill, at 10.
