Former Madison County sheriff's deputy heading to court

Justin Watson is set to go in front of a judge in federal court today and face charges of civil rights violations and obstruction of justice.

We'll have a crew in the courtroom and will continually bring you updates on Watson's arraignment as they come in.

GOP debate brings in viewers...and a few laughs

Donald Trump and nine of his closest competitors faced off in the first of many debates for the upcoming 2016 election. Trump stayed true to himself, maintaining his blunt style was in line with the approach he's taken to his campaign throughout the summer, appealing to voters frustrated with career politicians and perplexing his rivals. Trump's demeanor was criticized by Jeb Bush, calling his rhetoric "over-the-top." Check out how Trump, Bush and the other candidates performed in last night's debate.
