Good evening!

I hope you'll join Scott Reynolds and me for WAVE 3 News at 11!

Did you see this crazy story earlier today?  Police say a woman ordered her four-year-old to stab his aunt as the two women were fighting.  Tonight, WAVE 3's Matt McCutcheon is talking to a family member about what happened.

Plus, four candidates are on the primary ballot tomorrow for Commonwealth's Attorney in Jefferson County, and stopping violent crimes like the ones we've seen recently has become a big campaign issue.  WAVE 3's Connie Leonard asks how much the person in that office can do to stop offenders from repeating their crimes.

Could you see the kind of traffic problems that plagued Kentucky's Sprint Cup race at this year's Indianapolis 500?  There are some big traffic changes you'll want to know about.

And, some kids from Indiana lost their classmate to cancer four years ago, but were determined to honor him at graduation.  You'll hear how hard they had to fight to do it and how grateful his mother was for their effort.

We'll see you after NBC's new show American Ninja Warrior … at 11:00!
