We caught up with louisville mayor will hill..... he says he's in favor of this new bill..

"if those fines are not paid or are not in any effort to collect on them, then it's hard to establish a continuation of law and order.

Being able to collect that money that song out there will be a benefit for all local governments and all citizens because we all call local government is where the rubber meets the road, and we all benefit from it regardless of socioeconomic status or anyone."

Governor phil bryant's signature on the fetal heartbeat bill today keeps mississippi among the state's with the most restricted access to abortions.

But as courtney ann jackson explains--now he's preparing for both the legal costs and backlash that could bring.

Governor bryant knows that his signature on the fetal heartbeat bill puts mississippi among the ranks of the most restrictive abortion bans in the country.

"and it's law."

Legislative leaders know the passage of the legislation opens the door to a repeat court challenge.

"i have absolutely no problem supporting strongly whatever it costs to defend this lawsuit because i care about unborn children."

"we believe that it cannot be denied that once a heartbeat is detected that there is a life growing within the womb."

It's important to note that the law isn't set to take effect immediately.

It specifies the effective date as july 1.

But it's expected that the court battle will begin before that time.

"they don't have to sue us.

It's up to them.

If they do not believe in the sanctity of life, those that are in organizations like planned parenthood, we will have to fight that fight.

But it is worth it."

The center for reproductive rights says the ban---like last year's 15-week ban---is unconstitutional and they plan to sue the state to make sure it never takes effect.

But senator joey fillingane has faith the bill could still survive a court battle.

"i think we reside in mississipi in the most conservative circuit court district in the country, that being the 5th circuit.

So, if this bill has te chance in any of the lower circuit of being upheld, i think certainly the 5th circuit is the place you want to be."

The center for reproductive rights hasn't given a date for when they expect to file the legal challenge but will do so before july 1.

Courtney ann jackson, wcbi news take new at 10 stinger two men are in custody after a police chase crosses state lines.

This all started just after five this evening in milport, alabama on highway 96.

Police chief charles white says police were trying to pull over this silver car for speeding.

When police tried to pull it over, it kept driving down 96 which turns into highway 50.

The chase came to an end on carlene williams road in lowndes county.

White says two people were taken into custody.

One suspect was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

An iuka man faces a murder charge for his alleged role in the death of a tennessee man.

Christopher mailhot and elaina white were arrested today by the tennessee bureau of investigation and the savannah police department.

Wednesday investigators found the body of jeffery white outside his young lane home in savannah.

Agents say the investigations lead them to mailhot of iuka, and white, the victim's wife.

Mailhot is charged with one count of first degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit first degree murder.

White is also charged with first degree murder among other charges.

Both have a bond set at 2-million dollars.

First look stinger first look thursday night: clear, quiet, and chilly once again.

Lows fall back into the mid to upper 30s.

Friday-saturday: mostly sunny skies hang around and that bodes well for any outdoor plans you may have.

Highs are going to be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Overnight lows friday night will be in the upper 30s with more in the way of 40s saturday night.

Another dog attack sends one man to the hospital.

This time in union county.

Sheriff jimmy edwards says a man was attacked inside his home by three dogs he was caring for this morning.

The man received minor injuries and all three pit bulls were put down.

This is the second time in a week a pack of dogs has been responsible for attacking someone.

The recent attacks shine more negativity on the breed that already has a reputation for being aggressive.

Our jory tally sat down with a breeder and an animal behavior expert to find out what drives dogs to be more aggressive, and how to control that.... "as far as aggression goes, really any dog has the potential."

Dr. christine calder is an animal behavior expert at msu's college of veterinary of medicine.

She says there are certain medical conditions and emotions that could cause dog aggression more likely to happen, such as pain, discomfort, skin problems, and other diseases.

She also says dogs communicate by body language cues.

"we miss or we don't recognize and our dogs tolerate a lot from us.

There's many dogs that really don't like hugs and there's many dogs that really don't like kisses and it can be to a certain point where they will tolerate that and then maybe, they have an ear infection, or they have a toothache, and so they're inerrability level is much higher and then they're much more likely to bite at that point."

The animal specialist says many different factors play a role in how dogs behave..... early learning experience, their environment, socialization, and how they're raised.

"i started learning where these dogs derived from, what they used them for, what temperament they had and these dogs were never meant to be mean towards human, you know?

So, a lot of stuff is taught and caught, so you have to be careful what you teach your dog, what they go through and what they see."

Olando ware has owned a-gop- aye kennels for ten years now, but his love for dogs and the pit-bull breed has always been in his dna.

And now, he's passing that same care on to his daughter, who has been around dogs since she was born.

"most of them are american bully now, but pit bull terrier is a part of our breed, so we stand up for our breed and we just want people to know that these dogs are good dogs and they want a lot of love and a lot of attention, so you have to be willing to put the time in it.

Do your background.

Do your homework on these dogs to make sure this is a dog for you."

Before ware started the kennel business and got involved in showing his dogs for competition, he trained police dogs.

"the behaviors that you don't want, you have to be able to stop.

So training is very important at an early age, 6 weeks 8 weeks, 10 weeks you need to start training.

These dogs you need socialization.

You need to take them out.

Have them around different environments, so they get to know that everything is okay."

The man attacked in union county near myrtle, suffered cuts on his body from the dog attack.

The sheriff says the man was released from the hospital after getting stitches.

More and more places are starting to offer areas where mothers can breast feed.

We learn about baptist's baby friendly designation in our health talk with baptist.

Hi, i am susan spencer, director of women's services at baptist memorial hospital golden triangle.

Tonight we will discuss baptist's baby friendly designation and the how and why of exclusive breastfeeding.

Two of the important factors that influence success in breastfeeding are breastmilk only and only at the breast.

Here's why.

Babies are made to breastfeed.

Their stomach capacity is about the size of a small marble or a small grape.

That's all they need at one feeding.

They are also built for slow flow at first and will become easily confused with the gush of milk received from an artificial nipple.

Their mouths also conform differently to a pacifier and artificial bottle nipple than to a mother's nipple.

This can all be very confusing to some newborns and cause great stress to mothers who want to get breastfeeding off to a good start.

The flip side of the equation is the woman's body only makes more of what is used.

If the infant is fed formula she will not want to feed as frequently and that will lead to a decreased milk supply.

Another way to say this is, in order to make plenty of milk is to keep using what is made.

Additionally, formula can interfere with the infant's immune system which is a primary reason many women want to breastfeed.

The staff at baptist hospital are specially trained to insure that your infant is feeding well and off to a healthy start.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist.

Stinger spx open the bulldogs preparing for its first round matchup against liberty today inside the s-a-p center head coach ben howland facing the flames for ... the files from seated magi i then his coaching career.

Only twice in the past 12 years has a 12 seed failed to defeat a 5- seed.....somethin g the bulldogs are very aware of.... on sunday together, and right after they announced who we were playing, seth davis, i mean, it was like boom, right away, so he made my job really easy."

"we're just looking forward to showing a lot of people what we're made of.

You know, there's always been a cinderella team, and we're hoping it can be us.

We're just going to play, stay down, play for each other."

"i know what we got in this locker room, and how we gel together, and the team we got, so i'm ready to go play with those guys and to play as hard as we can."

"at the end of the day, nobody would be in this tournament if they weren't a winner.

That's how we take it.

This team is good, just like all the other teams no matter what seed or number is in front of their name.

They earned their spot here, and we have to take this chance, and win the ball game."

Ben howland also saying today sophomore guard nick weatherspoon did not make the trip to san jose, and remains suspended.

Courtney: "thank you, tom.

Currently here at colonial life arena where the stage has been set for a difficult 8/9 match-up between the oklahoma sooners and the ole miss rebels.

Now oklahoma does have a lot more experience in the ncaa tournament compared to ole miss as of recently.

Oklahoma getting back to the final four two seasons ago, also in the first round last year and much more beyond that.

Whereas, ole miss hasn't been to the tournament since 2015.

No player on this roster has seen the big dance yet.

Regardless of that, their not discouraged by it.

Ole miss, kermit davis and his team know they want to pull of a win they're going to have to see two key factors: some great and physical guard play as well as some staple ole miss transition defense.

Kermit davis: "doolittle can get the ball off the defensive boards and bring it up as a center.

As a so called center.

So, it makes your adjusting getting back defensively some different match-ups.

So obviously the way they shot from the perimeter.

The stretch four is so good.

He's as good as a stretch four shooter as it is in college basketball.

So you're right, that's been kind of a staple of ours for many many years wherever we've coached.

It's going to have to be true to form tomorrow."

Breein tyree: "just need to guard the ball.

Stay in front of our men and stay second in the air.

Be physical with them and rebound the ball and i think we should be fine."

Courtney: "i also had the chance to talk to head coach kermit davis about the difficulties ole miss has had finishing games off and kermit davis saying yes it's definitely a concern when you look at games like alabama, tennessee and kentucky.

He says he's telling his team that at the end of the game what they really need to do is just get down court, make good basketball plays and finish it off.

That's going to do it for me here at colonial life arena.

Courtney robb for wcbi sports, tom i'll send it back to you in san jose, california."

After losing key contributors from last year's team, the women dogs have picked up where they left off earning another #1 seed.

But the team probably wouldn't be this great without first team all sec and grad transfer, anriel howard, who decided on the bulldogs not only to develop her game.....but to win.

Spring is here, so why not spruce your landscaping with up with some colorful plants.

Starkville high school's future farmers of america chapter is hosting its annual plant sale today thru saturday.

The event is a fundraiser for the horticulture group and features a variety of ornamental plants grown by the students.

The sale is open to the public friday from 9am to 4pm and saturday from 8am to 11am at the millsaps vocational center on the starkville high campus.
