AT 10: Victims, family of multi-city crime spree speak

Good Monday evening, Tennessee Valley:

Nothing has captured my attention more today than the story about the couple from Missouri at the center of a multi-state crime spree, including in Alabama.

Blake Fitzgerald and Brittany Harper are accused of breaking into a home and abducting a woman Sunday near Birmingham. They are also being sought in Tuscaloosa, where they are charged with the kidnapping of a hotel clerk. At 10, we’ll have more on what they are accused of doing and where police are concentrating their search.

Tuesday is a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY - Brad Travis will have the latest on Tuesday's forecast, which includes the risk of strong-to-severe storms. We bring you these Weather Day notices so you can take adequate precautions - don't leave it up to chance.
 
We're also monitoring the results of tonight's Iowa Caucus - Hawkeye Staters are making the final push to their neighbors to kick off the 2016 presidential election. Heavy turnout is being reported in some locations. 
 
Six Alabamians - including two from North Alabama - are undergoing tests to determine if they have contracted the Zika virus. It's potentially dangerous and could even impact unborn children - learn more tonight about the latest in this worldwide health emergency.

All these stories and more are coming up on WAFF 48 News at 10.
