Standoff suspect back behind bars

Happy Friday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

It's 35 degrees this morning, but the thermometer will climb into the 60s today for the first time in a while. There are some evening showers we need to be ready for and meteorologist Julia Weiden has her eye on that in her First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, a man accused of sexually assaulting children is awaiting a ride back to the coast. Melvin Mason was one of south Mississippi's most wanted, but he was on the radar of local law enforcement yesterday during a stand-off. He's now in custody and we'll let you know what happens next, at the top of the hour.

Plus, the United States enjoyed a marquee day in Sochi and now they have closed the gap on Norway in the medal count. We'll have highlights of the 2014 Winter Olympics in the WLBT AM Report.

And, Fresh From the Flame's Julie Levanway stops by, as she does on every Friday to whip us up something. Tomato Soup is on the menu this morning and you can watch here make it live at 6:15.

All of that and much more is heading your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and have a great weekend!
