LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Here are 10 things Kentuckiana will be talking about today:

1: Cooler: Clouds are clearing this morning as rain moves out of the area from a cold front passing through the area. We have a sunny day ahead with cooler temperatures and lower humidity. Temperatures drop down to the 50s overnight for a pleasant cool down and some free air conditioning.

2: Murder: Police arrested a Louisville man late Monday in connection with the shooting death of a landlord. Anthony Jecker, 54, faces charges of murder and tampering with physical evidence. Metro Police questioned him for hours Monday while other detectives investigated an apartment building at the corner of Fegenbush Lane and Norbrook Drive in the South End. Neighbors said Jecker shot his landlord over a dispute about an electric bill. Police didn’t confirm the details and the landlord’s name wasn’t immediately released.

3: Murder-Suicide: A husband and wife were found dead inside of a Bullitt County home following what officials believe to be a murder-suicide. The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Mike Murdoch, the couple died from gunshot wounds sometime Sunday. A family member discovered them inside of a bedroom in the home on Cow Branch Road Monday afternoon.

4: New Laws: At least 22 new Kentucky laws go into effect on July 15, which means victims of domestic violence will find it easier to obtain concealed carry permits, adult care employers will be able to check a new adult abuse registry to see if prospective employees are listed, and some Kentucky nurses will have broader prescription-writing authority.

5: Vandals: A church in Fairdale was left with quite a mess after vandals broke into their pavilion over the weekend. At Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Church, located at 903 Fairdale Road, one of their main missions is to help the poor. Each month through Dare to Care and other programs they assist more than 400 people. Father Dolan said it was a shock to see fire extinguishers used throughout their pavilion, more than a dozen light bulbs shattered and ceiling fans broken.

6: Life Support: A legal challenge continues over who should determine when a baby is taken off life support. The father, Juan Alejandro Lopez Rosales, 24, is accused of beating his two-month-old infant. Attorneys representing Kosair Children's Hospital have asked a judge for permission to end life support for Isaac Lopez. Doctors testified there is no chance for recovery during testimony in court Monday.

7: Robbery: Police say three men broke into a 71-year-old woman's home, held her against her will, put a gun to her head and took her jewelry and money. One of the men also got thirsty during the home invasion and left a valuable piece of evidence behind which helped police find him.

8: Memphis Belle: A very special piece of history lands in Louisville this weekend. The Memphis Belle is a B-17 bomber that flew in World War II and it will be flying through the skies of the Derby City. We were invited on a flight aboard the "Flying Fortress" and it was an incredibly unique experience to get a feel for what our troops did during World War II.

9: Gymnastics: Tumbling and trampolines are taking center stage at the KFC Yum! Center and the Kentucky International Convention Center. The 2014 USA Gymnastics Championships are set to kick off Tuesday, July 15. Monday was all about the set-up as more than 1,600 of the nation's top gymnasts in acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, trampoline and tumbling are expected to attend the event.

10: Tonight @ 11:00: Have you ever thought about getting a tattoo? Now that tattoos are mainstream, tattoo removal is exploding, too. Actors Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, and Melanie Griffith have all had tattoos removed. Erasing a tattoo comes at a price to both your body and your wallet, but Dr. Lee Corbett of Corbett Cosmetic Surgery, who has been doing tattoo removal since 1999, says the procedure has never been more popular.
