Jailhouse exclusive interview

Joshua Houser speaks to WBTV about Davenport case

Hello everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom. We've got an exclusive interview for you tonight. Reporter David Spunt has worked for months to talk with Joshua Houser-- the man convicted of throwing Kylah Davenport into a wall, causing severe brain damage and eventual death. He says he didn't do it. See if you believe him at 11:00.

The young parents of a four-month-old baby, who was killed in a car wreck, say they don't blame the driver who police say was drunk and speeding. Their daughter was thrown from a car after it hit a telephone pole and flipped. What's more, the child seat was in the trunk to make room for all the passengers. Despite what the parents say, the driver has been charged with several felonies.

We're also remembering Maya Angelou who died today at age 86. The poet laureate was no stranger to Charlotte, taking part in the "Women Who Lead" luncheon each June to benefit UNCF.

And, don't miss a picture from Burke County of a double rainbow. Please join Eric Thomas, Molly Grantham and me for WBTV News at 11:00 tonight!
