Bank of America says media reports over news fees "false"; Family of released convicted killer: "He shouldn't be blamed"; CMS video gone viral

Good Morning! It's Friday, March 2. This is Christine Nelson with your first look at the stories we're covering today on WBTV News This Morning at 4:30 a.m.

Severe weather is expected later today in our area that you will want to know about. We'll have your first alert weather updates every 10 minutes.

We obtained the response from Bank of America on the reports of new fees being considered for checking account customers. The Charlotte-based company is calling the reports false, yet there are tests being done in other states. We'll read you the official response and let you decide.

The family of the accidentally released York County inmate is speaking publicly. The message they are sending this morning as they hold on to hope that Thomas Whitlock will turn himself in.

Plus... it's the deer from Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools that has gone viral! The panic that ensued moments after that deer jumped through the window of East Mecklenburg High School earlier this week.

In just a couple more hours you can get legal information for free through the "4ALL" event. We have all the exclusive details.

We'll see you on the air!
