FIRST ALERT: Two murder trials to begin in Morgan County

(WAFF) -

Two murder trials to begin in Morgan County

Jury selection is expected to begin Monday morning for the trial of Elias Nava. The 19-year-old is accused in the shooting death of another teenage boy during a fight at a Decatur mobile home park back in 2013. In another murder trial, Don Robinson is one of the accused murderers who'll head to court Monday morning. Robinson is accused of the brutal June 2014 murder of his girlfriend Stacey Jones at her Priceville home.

North Carolina gov. faces Fed's Monday deadline on LGBT law

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory shows no signs of backing down in the face of the federal government's Monday deadline to declare he won't enforce the new state law limiting protections for LGBT people - defiance that could risk funding for the state's university system and lead to a protracted legal battle. 

Possible rain showers for Monday 

We’ll see a fair amount of cloud cover today, and it won’t be quite as warm as it was on Sunday.  Most are still in the low-to-mid 60s this morning.  Winds will be out of the south today at 5-10 mph. We should warm into the upper 70s by lunchtime with highs into the lower 80s this afternoon.  Most of the area will remain dry, but a few showers are possible over northwestern AL today. 


We hope you'll join Margo Gray, Trent Butler and David Ernst for WAFF 48 News this morning. Remember, you can always watch online at WAFF.com/Live or by tapping "Watch Newscasts" on your WAFF News mobile app.wa
