What's next for pastor found not guilty on mental grounds

Good Thursday evening. Here's a look at just a few of the stories we're working on here in the WAFF 48 Newsroom for tonight's 10 o'clock newscast.

We've been telling you about Terry Greer, a former North Alabama pastor who was accused of killing his wife and injuring his daughter in Gardendale. As we reported Wednesday, Greer was found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect by a Montgomery judge. But what happens now? He's being sent to a mental health facility. But for how long? And if he gets better, will he stand trial for the murder? Has he gotten away with murder? WAFF 48's Vincent Crivelli went digging for the answers to those questions. He'll tell you what he found out.

We're continuing to experience scattered spring thunderstorms. This brings to mind the fact that lightning is the second leading cause of weather-related deaths in the United States. We'll hear from emergency officials on ways to avoid adding to that statistic.

And we all know that in a political race, the person with the most votes wins. But does that also mean that the person with the most campaign dollars wins? In other words, can you buy an election? In a WAFF 48 Investigation, Sarah Navoy will reveal just how large a factor large monetary donations actually are.

We hope you'll join us for these stories and more tonight at 10.
