Hello. It's Christine Nelson. A lot to tell you about on this Wednesday, June 12. Make sure you're watching WBTV News This Morning from 4:30-7:00 a.m. so you're caught up before you head out the door.
We're staying on top of the investigation in Boone, where three people died in the same hotel room. WBTV has learned a special inspection team will be here today after it was discovered carbon monoxide poisoning is likely the culprit behind the deaths of an 11-year-old and an older couple. We'll tell you where that team is traveling from and how long it could take before a source is officially confirmed.
Also, some unhappy parents in Mecklenburg County who wants more nurses in CMS schools. We'll tell you the result of a vote at the county commission meeting last night to fund that request.
We're also following the unrest that continues in Turkey. New developments from overnight while you were sleeping show the situation there is not making improving.
Those stories and you're first alert weather and traffic every 10 minutes! We're live NOW!
