Reefer madness?

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom. 

Tonight, is it a case of reefer madness? A Colorado mother called 911 to report her husband hallucinating, talking about the end of the world and saying he wanted her to shoot and kill him.  She told the emergency operator he was smoking marijuana, which is now legal in Colorado.  While on the phone, her husband grabbed the gun and shot. When police arrived, she was dead.

We're also following the trial of former Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker, facing five misconduct in office charges. Parker took the stand to defend himself today and blamed the people who worked under him for many of the issues.  When asked why he didn't arrest two inmates who were allowed to shoot guns on his property, Parker testified he didn't know it was illegal for an inmate to possess a weapon.

We've also learned about North Carolina Army Sergeant Kyle White's heroism on the battlefield. After saving seven lives, Sgt. White is the nation's newest Medal of Honor recipient. He was out-manned and out-gunned in the middle of an ambush on a dark mountain pass in Afghanistan. But he found the courage to sprint into enemy fire and save the lives of several wounded comrades.

The Charlotte Bobcats win in overtime for tonight's last regular season game. What will it mean for their playoff seeding? The D-man has all the sports answers.

And weatherwise, we've got another freezy morning ahead, then it's a beautiful spring weekend after that. So please join Eric Thomas, Molly Grantham, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00 in just a few minutes.
