A sixth man has pleaded guilty in connection with racially motivated attacks by young whites against blacks in Jackson.

Plus, the body of an 18-year-old man was discovered on the side of a road in Warren County, just outside of Vicksburg, early Wednesday morning. There is a suspect and police are looking for him.

Also, the city of Jackson and a global corporation have agreed to a $90 million deal that Mayor Harvey Johnson Jr. has called the largest infrastructure project in the city's history.

And, if you've never seen a Blue Angel, now's the time at the Mississippi Air National Guard Base in Flowood.
