Machete murder - - Jackson, MS

Machete murder

Good Thursday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

We're getting things started at 74 degrees and with the humidity expected to be high we have another sticky day ahead. Hopefully things will cool-off a bit by the time Brandon and Madison Central kickoff the high school football season. Meteorologist Michael Haynes will have your First Alert Football Forecast.

Happening today, a reported illegal immigrant is set to face a judge this morning for hacking a man to death with a machete in a Madison County trailer park. Details of what led to the gruesome murder are at the top of the hour.

Plus, after Mayor Chokwe Lumumba's large rate increase proposal, Jackson city leaders will now go through the possible 2013-2014 budget line-by-line. Jewell Hillery tells us what administrators will be looking for in live reports.

All those stories and much more are headed your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now you can find us from 7 to 9 on Fox 40.

Have a great Friday eve!
