Mississippi child seriously injured after throat slash

Good morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

That warm-up that Michael has been telling us about all week begins today. Our Thursday is starting out at 45 degrees and he says we can expect to hit 70 in the afternoon. Michael Haynes will also have a preview of our weekend weather in his First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, an 8-year-old boy from the coast is suffering from serious injuries this morning after an alleged kidnapper slashed the child's throat. The boy's reported captor is now in custody and we'll bring you the latest on this developing story at the top of the hour.

Plus, leaders in the city of Jackson continue their sales pitch for a one-percent sales tax increase that residents will vote on in January. Jewell Hillery will let us know what those in support of the measure have planned today.

And, let the search begin.  JSU officials are now looking for a new coaching staff after administrators decided to part ways with former head football coach Rick Comegy.

All those stories and much more are headed your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and Mississippi News Now continues on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday eve!
