Greetings on a Wednesday night!!

We've got a lot going on today and I hope you'll check out what we've been working on tonight on WAVE 3 News at 11 with Scott Reynolds and me.

We're following a big breaking story tonight … possible charges for the stepfather of a teen who was killed behind Liberty High School in Louisville last year.  We'll let you know what we've learned.

I'm sure you've heard about the Louisville teen who could have gotten herself into big trouble for simply naming the boys who abused her online.  Now, her case could change the way all juvenile offenders are treated in Kentucky's court system.  Do you think it's a good idea?  We'll let you hear from arguments on both sides so you can decide.

Plus, Metro Councilwoman Barbara Shanklin now faces a criminal investigation into allegations of wrongdoing and misuse of taxpayer money.  WAVE 3's Matt McCutcheon dug up some interesting file video of now-former Councilwoman Judy Green making similar allegations against Shanklin.

And, wait until you see the police chase through a Southern Indiana town … and the unique "suspect" captured.

We're counting you down to the Olympics tonight … and letting you hear from one of Kentucky's superstars about his pre-game jitters.  Make sure you check out our Olympic Zone for more on the games and the athletes from our area who we'll be rooting for.  By the way, if you want to know who wins before NBC's coverage airs, you can click here to sign up for our "spoiler text messages."

We'll see you tonight at 11:00!
