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

1: Fog: A DENSE FOG ADVISORY is in effect this morning with fog settling in the Ohio Valley that could slow you down on the roads. Once the fog burns off later this morning, we will see partly sunny skies, and most of the day will be dry.

2: Sentence: Cody Cashion was given the maximum sentence on Monday in the deaths of three New Albany children in a January house fire. At his sentencing, a judge sentenced Cashion to 65 years for the three murders and 50 years for arson. Cashion, 18, told the judge he was "sorry" before he was sentenced.

3: Not Guilty: The hot dog vendor accused of murdering a man during a road rage incident in June pleaded not guilty in court on Monday. Prosecutors say Donald Hayes, 67, shot and killed Danny Wilson, 57, on June 21 on the parking lot of Chase Bank and C.T. Haircutters on Poplar Level Road. Police believe the men got into an altercation while driving separate vehicles and then pulled into the parking lot where Wilson was gunned down by Hayes.
