Should Charlotte offer marital benefits to same-sex couples?

Hello again friends, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom.

Tonight at 11:00PM—should Charlotte offer marital benefits to same-sex couples, despite the passage of Amendment One?  That's the legal question city council wants answered before extending benefits.  Mecklenburg County already allows benefits for same-sex couples, although Commissioner Bill James is asking if that policy should be withdrawn considering the new state law re-affirming a ban on gay marriage.

New medical evidence released in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.  One witness described wounds to the teenager's hands consistent with throwing punches.  And we've learned what the man who shot Martin says were his last words.
