HONOLULU (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey says explosions of varying sizes happen whenever 2,000-degree Fahrenheit lava enters much colder seawater.
  
But the large explosion that blasted lava onto a tour boat Monday could also have to something to do with the offshore topography and the amount of molten rock currently entering the ocean in that area.
  
USGS Geologist Janet Babb says that lava mixing with water is always explosive, but there are also times that molten rock can become encrusted underwater, and when that crust breaks the interaction it can cause huge steam explosions that can hurl debris hundreds of yards (meters) into the air.
  
The volume of lava now entering the sea is much higher than in previous flows, Babb says, and because the ocean is relatively shallow in that area, the lava has more opportunity to build up and explode near the surface.

Order barring Louisiana death sentence is extended by 1 year http://www.wbrz.com/news/order-barring-louisiana-death-sentence-is-extended-by-1-year/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/order-barring-louisiana-death-sentence-is-extended-by-1-year/ News Mon, 16 Jul 2018 9:00:26 PM Associated Press Order barring Louisiana death sentence is extended by 1 year
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A federal judge's order bars Louisiana from carrying out any death sentences for at least one more year.
  
At the request of state authorities, U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick agreed Monday to order a 12-month extension in an order temporarily staying all executions in Louisiana.
  
A lawsuit challenging the state's lethal injection protocols has blocked Louisiana from carrying out any death sentences since 2014. Its last execution was in 2010.
  
In a court filing last Wednesday, an attorney for the state said litigating the case now would be "a waste of resources and time."
  
Drug shortages have forced Louisiana's corrections department to rewrite its execution plan several times since 2010.
  
Dick's order suspends the litigation through at least July 18, 2019.

Bobcat spotted in neighborhood off Perkins Road http://www.wbrz.com/news/bobcat-spotted-in-neighborhood-off-perkins-road/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/bobcat-spotted-in-neighborhood-off-perkins-road/ News Mon, 16 Jul 2018 8:05:30 PM Bess Casserleigh Bobcat spotted in neighborhood off Perkins Road

EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH - Another incident of wildlife in the suburbs: this time in Baton Rouge, just off Perkins Road. 

"He was actually peering in to the window as if he was looking in," Cheri Harrison told WBRZ.

Harrison was at her home in Woodchase on Saturday when she noticed the peculiar-looking feline. 

"I was just curious, was that really a bobcat? Because that's highly unusual to have one on your porch," she said. 

After a call to Wildlife and Fisheries, experts determined it was in fact a young bobcat, most likely male, tracking its prey. It appeared to be in good shape, but perhaps a little lost.

According to the resident bobcat expert, new construction, like the next door Rouzan neighborhood, is pushing out wildlife from their natural habitats and into subdivisions like these.

Just last week, a black bear was spotted in a Central neighborhood.

Wildlife and Fisheries says the bobcat is not likely to prey on pets, rather small rodents and birds.

La. Congressman Garret Graves criticizes president's remarks on Russia http://www.wbrz.com/news/la-congressman-garret-graves-questions-president-s-remarks-on-russia/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/la-congressman-garret-graves-questions-president-s-remarks-on-russia/ News Mon, 16 Jul 2018 7:13:45 PM Jeremy Krail La. Congressman Garret Graves criticizes president's remarks on Russia

BATON ROUGE - Louisiana Congressman Garret Graves says he "strongly disagrees" with some of the comments made by President Donald Trump during an appearance alongside Russian leader Vladimir Putin Monday.

Trump repeated that the Russian government denied any involvement in meddling with the 2016 election as he shared a stage with the Russian president at a summit in Helsinki Monday morning. When pressed to condemn the alleged Russian hacking, Trump said he saw no reason why they would have interfered.

"He just said it's not Russia. I will say this: I don't see any reason why it would be," Trump said of Putin.

Graves, a Republican, took to Facebook to voice his frustration with the president's remarks, citing that multiple investigations have confirmed Russian meddling in the election.

"Putin and the Russian government’s integrity and trustworthiness are about as credible as SNL’s Tommy Flanagan – except it’s not funny," Graves said via his public page. "I strongly disagree with some of the president’s remarks today and urge him to provide the American people with some additional clarity regarding our relationship with Russia."

Trump's initial comments came after hours of private talks with Putin at the summit.

A tough lesson: woman in debt after loaning card to contractor http://www.wbrz.com/news/a-tough-lesson-woman-in-debt-after-loaning-card-to-contractor/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/a-tough-lesson-woman-in-debt-after-loaning-card-to-contractor/ News Mon, 16 Jul 2018 6:23:18 PM Brittany Weiss A tough lesson: woman in debt after loaning card to contractor

DENHAM SPRINGS - A woman is stuck with thousands of dollars in credit card debt after she tells 2 On Your Side she was duped by her contractor.

Dianne Glascock says she willingly handed over her Home Depot credit card to Axl Escobar, who was working to repair her flood-damaged house. Glascock says Escobar was working under another person's license and told her he needed some supplies to work on other jobs.

"He said he was broke and he had this big job in New Orleans and asked if he could charge some supplies," she said. "I really liked the guy I trusted him completely and I let him use my card."

Billing statements show charges on Glascock's Home Depot card exceeding $6,100. Items purchased include a saw, tile, wood flooring, lighting, paint, a battery-operated screwdriver, a battery-operated radio, convertible range hood, and dozens of other items. The charges are over a six-month period until Glascock canceled the card in June. She says the card still has not been returned to her.

In addition to the credit card charges, Glascock says Escobar was paid to do work in her home he didn't do. She says he was to finish her master bedroom, replace siding, the windows on the front of the house and in the rear of the home. Glascock opted to front the money for these projects, but the front windows and the siding were never replaced by Escobar. Glascock also wrote him a check for an $800 loan.

"He won't pay me back now," said Glascock. 

Text message between Glascock and Escobar show that there have been multiple pleas for him to reimburse the money and finish the job. Escobar named multiple dates planning to stop by to make things right and did not show up.

Now Glascock fears he might be doing this to other people.

"I recommended him to a friend and he did the same thing to him," she said. "My friend then recommended him to someone else who he did the same thing to again."

While Glascock is now in a tough situation, she is taking the responsibility for her actions.

"There's nobody to blame but myself," she said. "I just don't want him to do this to other people."

Last week, 2 On Your Side spoke to a man identifying himself as Axl Escobar on the phone. He told WBRZ's Brittany Weiss he needed some time to get paid from another job so he could repay Glascock and requested a week to make things right. That deadline passed when Monday's story aired on WBRZ.

Glascock says she has contacted the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office and filed a report.

METAIRIE - A home filled to the brim with LSU memorabilia could be all yours, so long as you don't mind that its previous owner was shot to death in his front yard.

The home of Lee "Big Lee" Martin has officially been put on the market along with a trove of LSU gear still inside. Lee was a self-proclaimed Tiger fanatic who filled his Metairie house with whatever LSU-themed items who could get his hands on.

WWL took a tour of his home back in 2012, showing off everything, ranging from newspaper clippings to toilet seat covers.

Lee was best known around Jefferson Parish for his controversial "Big Lee" towing company. But authorities said an ongoing feud with his neighbor is what led to his death.

Back in May, the Jefferson Parish sheriff said Lee had gotten into an argument with his next door neighbor in front of his home. That confrontation escalated and Lee was fatally shot in his front yard. His neighbor, 78-year-old Wayne Higgins was arrested and charged with Lee's death.

Lee's home is now for sale with an asking price of $349,900. You can find more info on the listing HERE.

GONZALES - A three-year-old who lives in Prairieville is already taking on the role of a protective big brother.

Bryson Bowers is manning a lemonade stand. The money earned will go toward treating his six-month-old sister's heart condition.

Brynleigh Bowers was born with only one kidney, and two holes in her heart.

“The heart is working harder than it should so she has a large hole and smaller hole,” said the children’s mom, Jennie Bowers. “She has complete atrioventricular heart defects.”

The doctors originally wanted Brynleigh to have open heart surgery when she turned one to fix this, but recent conditions fast-tracked the surgery to next week.

“I don't know what percentage insurance is going to cover, if they're going to cover her drug portion,” said Jennie.

Jennie said Bryson overheard her and her husband talking about the need to raise money. That’s when he came up with the idea of a lemonade stand.

“I'm definitely proud,” said Jennie.

In the last two weeks he’s raised nearly $3,000. Monday he set up shop at A Better Mail Service in Gonzales.

“He’s been over the moon, he loves her so much,” said Jennie.

The family will continue to sell lemonade throughout the week. Click here to find out dates and times.

A benefit will also be held Saturday July, 21 at Fred’s on the River.

GRETNA, La. (AP) - Police say a Louisiana doctor has been charged with sexual battery after a suspicious patient used a cellphone to record him fondling her during an exam.

NOLA.com/The Times Picayune reports 57-year-old Dr. James Dyess was arrested Thursday and released from jail on a $20,500 bond. Dyess practices internal medicine in Gretna.

Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson said a 35-year-old woman told investigators she felt the doctor made inappropriate sexual advances during a prior appointment. She set up a cellphone in her purse to record video during a follow-up exam. Lawson said it showed Dyess fondling the woman's breasts and genitals.

Dyess was charged after the woman brought the video to police.

The newspaper said the doctor's attorney, Brian Capitelli, declined to comment.

CONIFER, COLORADO - A mother is warning fellow parents to use caution with front-loading washers after her daughter became trapped inside of one.

Lindsey McIver posted a plea to Facebook last week after her three-year-old daughter became locked inside of their new washing machine that was quickly filling with water.

McIver says she and her husband had recently purchased the appliance at Lowe's, and had warned their children not to touch it. Early Tuesday morning, the parents were woken up by their four-year-old son crying hysterically at their bedside. 

"As I was trying to understand what he was saying, my husband flew out of bed and down the stairs. It was then that the realization hit. He had said: Kloe. Inside. Washer," she wrote.

The parents found Kloe inside of the washing machine, which was turned on and filling with water. They were able to stop the washer and free the child, who sustained minor injuries.

McIver is now warning other parents with curious children to secure front-loading washers with safety locks.

Shoppers clicking on many Prime Day links Monday got only an abashed-looking dog with the words, "Uh-oh. Something went wrong on our end."
  
It wasn't clear how widespread the outage was, and an Amazon spokesman didn't immediately respond to an email.
  
Shoppers took to social media to complain that they couldn't order any items. It's a particular embarrassment for Amazon, on the shopping holiday it created that has become one of its busiest days.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain calls President Donald Trump’s press conference “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.”

The Arizona Republican says the summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki was “a tragic mistake.” The senator says Trump proved not only unable, “but unwilling to stand up to Putin.”

And he said Trump and Putin “seemed to be speaking from the same script” as Trump made a “conscious choice to defend a tyrant.” McCain, who has been away from the Senate as he battles brain cancer, said the damage inflicted by Trump’s “naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate.”

Mother accused of killing baby with drug-laced breast milk http://www.wbrz.com/news/mother-accused-of-killing-baby-with-drug-laced-breast-milk/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/mother-accused-of-killing-baby-with-drug-laced-breast-milk/ News Mon, 16 Jul 2018 2:01:43 PM Associated Press Mother accused of killing baby with drug-laced breast milk

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A 30-year-old woman with a painkiller addiction has been accused of killing her 11-week-old son with a lethal mix of drugs in her breast milk.

Samantha Jones was charged Friday with criminal homicide in the April 2 death of her baby. An autopsy found the baby died from a combination of methadone, amphetamine and methamphetamine, the Bucks County District Attorney’s office said in a statement.

According to an affidavit, Jones told police she’d been too tired to make the baby a bottle when he awoke crying at 3 a.m. and instead breastfed him. A few hours later, the baby was pale and had bloody mucus coming from his nose, she told police.

Jones’s mother began CPR at the instruction of a dispatcher after they called 911, the affidavit said. Police arrived at the home in New Britain, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) north of Philadelphia, to find the baby in cardiac arrest.

He was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he died.

The affidavit stated that Jones said she primarily had been breastfeeding the baby, but switched to formula a few days before the baby’s death, saying the infant wasn’t getting enough milk. Jones told police that she had been prescribed methadone because of an addiction to painkillers, that she had taken it during her pregnancy, and that she was taking it at the time of the baby’s death, the affidavit said.

A message seeking comment from her lawyer, Louis Busico, wasn’t returned Monday.

Other parents have faced charges over drug-laced breastmilk in recent years. In 2016, two former Arizona TV news reporters were sentenced to a year of probation and suspended 30-day jail terms after cocaine was found in their baby’s system. And in 2012, a California woman whose infant son died after ingesting methamphetamine-laced breast milk was sentenced to six years in prison.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — How much of Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz’s statement to investigators should be made public is an issue going before a judge.

A hearing is set Monday on whether any or all of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting suspect’s statement should be released. Attorneys for the 19-year-old Cruz want most of the statement suppressed, contending it would improperly influence jurors in his trial.

News organizations including The Associated Press want as much of the statement released as possible. Florida law requires most evidence to be made public once it is turned over by prosecutors to the defense.

Cruz faces the death penalty if convicted of killing 17 people in the Valentine’s Day attack. His attorneys say he would plead guilty in exchange for a life prison sentence.

BATON ROUGE - The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office has decided to take a crack at the 'lip-sync challenge' that has been dominating social media over the past several weeks.

On Monday, the sheriff's office released a four-minute video in which off-duty deputies dance and "sing" to a number of songs, including 'U Can't Touch This' and 'Blame it on the Rain'.

EBRSO is the latest local law enforcement agency to take on the challenge. Last week, the Gonzales Police Department tried its hand at covering 'Elvira'.

The video ends with a tribute to the deputies who have been killed or seriously injured in shootings over the past two years, including Brad Garafola, Shawn Anderson, Bruce Simmons, and Nick Tullier.

FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) — Officials in a western Arkansas city say residents can finally kick off their Sunday shoes.

Fort Smith city directors recently repealed a 1953 ordinance that essentially outlawed public dancing on Sundays. Locals who knew about it called it the “Footloose” ordinance, nicknamed for the 1984 movie starring Kevin Bacon about a town that banned dancing and rock music. City Director Andre Good introduced the repeal after a resident told him about the antiquated law, which barred the operation of public dance halls or any place with dancing on Sundays.

The law’s emergency clause said public dancing on the day “greatly endangers the public health, safety, and welfare.” A city spokeswoman says no one’s been arrested or ticketed in two decades for cutting loose on Sundays. Even so, Good says, the city shouldn’t be able to impose “some outdated, outmoded morality code.”

SLIDELL - A police department in St. Tammany Parish is looking for a thief who stole a tricycle made specifically for a 12-year-old girl with special needs.

The father of the girl said he discovered the bike was missing Sunday morning as the family was preparing for a camping trip. He told police that when he went to retrieve the $2,000 bike from his family's storage unit, it was nowhere to be found.

The Amtryke tricycle, which was custom built specifically to the 12-year-old girl’s body dimensions, was red in color and had a small license plate with the name “Adara” adhered to the back of it.

The police chief especially took umbrage with the crime and shared an open letter to the unknown thief Monday.

“I can’t stand a thief, but to the person who stole a special needs child’s bike, there’s a special place in hell for you," Chief Randy Fandal said. "I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn’t know this was a bike specifically made for a 12-year-old special needs girl. If you have a heart or a conscience, return it, if not, I can assure you we will find you.”

Slidell Police are asking anyone with information to call 985-646-6181.

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) - Police in North Texas say a man accused of fatally shooting his boss on the Fourth of July and then fleeing has surrendered in Louisiana.

Grand Prairie police say 56-year-old Jimmie Reynolds turned himself in over the weekend to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. Jail records show Reynolds was being held without bond Monday while awaiting extradition to face a murder charge.

Authorities believe 57-year-old Carlos Aparicio and Reynolds argued before the victim was shot while at his Dallas-area business. Aparicio died later at a hospital. Police say Aparicio employed Reynolds for years at a road construction trucking company.

Online jail records Monday did not list an attorney to speak for Reynolds.
