Olympian charged with murder

Good Thursday morning and happy Valentine's Day from Mississippi News Now's Brandon Artiles!

This day of love is not off to a warm & fuzzy start.  You're waking up to temps in the mid-30s and meteorologist Paul Williams will bring us up to speed on the weather with his First Alert Forecast.

Making headlines, current assessments put the dollar figure on damage at Univ. of Southern Miss into the millions. Now, President Obama has declared both Forrest & Lamar counties disaster areas making them eligible for federal aid.

Plus, we have breaking news out of South Africa. The double amputee sprinter who captured the world's attention during the 2012 London Games has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend.

And, appropriate for Valentine's Day it appears American Airlines and U.S. Airways are hooking up to form the biggest airline in the world.

All those stories and much more are headed your way at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more MSNewsNow, come on over to Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Valentine's and Friday eve!
