Developing: Preparations moving forward for protest against Maiden pastor

Good Friday morning! Today is May 25. This Christine Nelson with your first look at the stories we're covering on WBTV News This Morning at 4:30 a.m.

We're continuing to follow a development we first broke on the late news last night. Preparations can move forward for that protest planned against Maiden pastor Charles Worley. Remember he's the one who preached the sermon that called for homosexuals to be rounded up and left to die. We have the latest developments.

Plus, another story we first broke for you on the Etan Patz arrest. We're hearing from neighbors of the man arrested for the little boy's kidnapping and murder. Did their description of him match the person police say strangled the boy to death?

Also, the amazing story of redemption for a 17-year-old promising star football player who spent years in prison for a rape he never committed.

We'll see you on the air!
