Excessive force trial begins

(WAFF) -

Good Tuesday morning!  Trent Butler here with a preview of what you'll see on WAFF 48 News Today.  This morning, jury selection will begin in the trial of Madison police officer Eric Parker, who's facing a civil rights violation after dash cam video shows him slamming a man to the ground.  The man was left partially paralyzed.  He was visiting Madison from India to help his son and daughter-in-law care for their 17-month-old son.  We'll tell you what to expect in this trial. 

Governor Bentley and his wife are getting a divorce, but we may not hear many details about this case.  We'll tell you why.  Plus, the State Department releases more of Hillary Clinton's emails.  We'll let you know what they've uncovered. Plus, we'll share the latest presidential poll numbers as one candidate is closing in on Donald Trump. 

David Ernst is talking about some slighter warmer temps in his forecast.  We hope you can join David, Margo and me on TV!
