Another interesting political story from Astrid Martinez this morning...all-new for the morning show.  Astrid is talking to local business owners...many of them undecided voters...about the impact the economy is having on their businesses and how that's going to influence them when they head to the polls this November.

An emotional vigil held in Charlotte last night...for the 17 year old who was shot and killed after the suspects in the case say he "disrespected" them in front of a girl.

A second arrest has been made in the case of a South Carolina couple who were found murdered while vacationing in the Caribbean.

The 75-year-old Virginia Paper Company building is scheduled to be torn down today...to make room for the new Charlotte Knights stadium in uptown Charlotte.
