Bodies found at Talladega Superspeedway

(WAFF) -

Good morning! Trent Butler here reminding you that we are one step closer to the weekend. 

This morning, on WAFF 48 News Today, we're bringing you the latest on an investigation at Talladega Superspeedway after two dead bodies were found in a camper during the race weekend. Police are trying to find out how the two people died and how they know each other.

State Auditor Jim Zeigler is taking his fight to get Governor Bentley to testify under oath to a judge. The Governor was a no show Monday for his called meeting with Zeigler. Zeigler wanted Governor Bentley to present documents and answer questions about plane trips involving the governor's former political adviser and his use of state funds. The Governor maintains there's no need to talk with Zeigler since he claims he's cooperating with an ethics investigation.

We're also bringing you up to speed on what's happening in Montgomery during the final two days of the legislative session. Lawmakers are considering a number of bills that might affect you. We'll update you on Governor Bentley's plan to build four new larger prisons, a bill that close North Alabama's only abortion clinic and a plan that would reduce interest rates on payday loans.  

You'll likely notice a change in the air when you step outside this morning! David Ernst is talking about less humid air and very pleasant temps. We'll see this morning on WAFF 48 from 4:30 until 7 AM!
