Panthers Beat Patriots; New Information In Child Abuse Case

A lot of your co-workers may be a little tired today...that is, if they stayed up late to watch the Carolina Panthers game against the New England Patriots.  But they probably don't mind, because the Panthers BEAT the Patriots 24 to 20...making it six wins in a row!

Good morning to you on this Tuesday, 19 November 2013, from the WBTV News morning team...John Carter reporting to you this morning.  Be sure to join us from 4:30 to 7:00 this morning as we bring you all the news you need to get your morning off to the best start possible.

You're probably going to hear a lot of talk about the Panthers game today.  Not just because the team won, but because of the controversial non-call on the last play of the game that sealed the win for the Panthers.  What did you think about the play?  Our Ron Lee will be live from Bank of America stadium with reaction to last night's game.

We have new information in the case of a Union County couple charged with abusing their foster child.  Now the county is asking state social services to conduct an independent investigation into the case.

One person was hurt but is expected to be okay after a car collided with a light rail train in south Charlotte.  We'll take you to the scene to show you what happened.

The death toll now stands at eight following the tornadoes that hit the Midwest over the weekend.  And we have new video this morning, taken by a homeowner, just as a twister was sweeping into his neighborhood.

Police say a 15-year old sex slave has been rescued from an east Charlotte hotel.  WBTV's David Spunt found out this case is part of a much larger investigation.

We have a fascinating story from our Astrid Martinez...Charlotte medical researchers are conducting a study involving stem cell therapy that can be used to treat heart attack patients.

Have you ever taken a picture of yourself with your cell phone...a "selfie" it's called.  We have an interesting story on "selfies"!

A bit cooler today than yesterday...we'll only get into the mid 50s in the Charlotte area.  Al Conklin will have your First Alert Weather forecast.

All that and so much more...when you join us for WBTV News This Morning from 4:30 to 7:00 AM.  See you then!!
