Sunrise to Go: Monday, July 21

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

1: Hot: The big story today will be the heat and humidity to start the week. Temperatures will quickly jump to 90 and will feel near 100 tomorrow afternoon. A cold front brings us a better chance for storms Wednesday, especially in the evening/overnight and lingering into Thursday morning.

2: Murder-Suicide: Police believe a teenage girl was killed by her aunt’s ex-boyfriend in an apparent murder-suicide Sunday morning in Trimble County. According to Trooper Brad Arterburn with the Kentucky State Police, the suspected shooter, 48-year-old Robert Harmon, and a 16-year-old girl were killed. The girl’s aunt, 33-year-old Niki Davis, was taken to University of Louisville Hospital with injuries that police said were not life-threatening. Police reported that Harmon and Davis were in a relationship that ended about a week ago.

3: Arrest: The suspect in the killing of a Louisville taxi driver in Oldham County was arrested in New York during a traffic stop. New York State Police and the City of Watertown Police arrested Miles J. Matthews, 27, of Corydon, Indiana, at 10 a.m. Sunday in Watertown, a city in northern New York near the Canadian border.

4: Crash: A 10-month-old infant was critically injured in a crash that shut down Dixie Highway Sunday afternoon. According to the Louisville Metro Police Department, the vehicle carrying the infant was heading south when the driver failed to yield as she turned left. A man driving a northbound car was unable to stop and hit the vehicle.

5: Accident: A man fishing on the Ohio River who fell overboard after his boat hit an underwater object was pronounced dead at the hospital. Indiana Conservation officers say their preliminary investigation shows that two fisherman were just upstream of the K&I Bridge when the victim fell in the water. They say the victim quickly resurfaced and was helped into the boat, but lost consciousness.

6: Murder: Two Munfordville residents charged with murder and kidnapping are being held on a $1 million bond, according to jail records. Octavio Correa, 24, and Tiffany Hodges, 31, are being held at the Hardin County Detention Center. They were booked into custody around 6 a.m. Sunday morning. Both are also charged with theft of an automobile.

7: Forecastle: There's a new act at Louisville's Forecastle Festival that's taking center stage. Bourbon experts serve the droves of people anxious to give something new a shot. The Bourbon Lodge was added in 2010 under a 30-foot tent. Now that tent is five times longer and even has air conditioning. There are 25 varieties of bourbon from seven different brands. Local chefs are on hand conducting cooking demonstrations. All recipes include the crowd's favorite ingredient.

8: Picnic: Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Church has endured much over the past few years - the merger of two parishes that created it, break-ins, even the theft of the priest’s car - but vandalism won’t stop the picnic that not only pays the bills, but brings the faithful home.

9: Licenses: The Commonwealth of Kentucky has sent in paperwork that could get the state a federal extension and make our drivers licenses valid for restricted government areas. Right now, they won't work in those places and unless changes are made, in a few years, Kentucky residents will need a passport or other approved forms of identification just to board an airplane. Right now, the physical security of the 141 county circuit court clerks drivers license bureaus is the holdup.

10: iPhone: High-tech tricks are hidden in many mobile phones -- things you probably never thought were possible. Every brand of mobile phone has at least a few secrets; perhaps none more than the industry leader: the Apple iPhone. People line up for hours to get the newest version. They wait breathlessly for word about what the next generation of iPhone will do, even though many don't even know what the one already in their hands is capable of.
