Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Expect traffic delays if you’re trying to get out of town on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge as crews work on a water main break on Wooster Street.

Police and firefighters have three westbound lanes of Wooster closed as CFPUA crews work to fix the problem. Officials advise drivers to avoid Wooster between 5th Avenue and 3rd Street.

WFD suggests traffic wanting to cross the bridge to Brunswick County should use 3rd Street or Front Street or consider using the Isabel Holmes Bridge on the north end of downtown.

McCrory hosts reception as RNC leaders meet in NC

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — The Republican National Committee is holding its winter meetings in the North Carolina city where Democrats re-nominated Barack Obama for president four months ago.

The RNC expects about 250 people to attend meetings that are to get under way Wednesday in Charlotte and run through Friday at a downtown hotel. Most of the work will be business meetings and training sessions. GOP leaders also will elect their four top leaders Friday. Chairman Reince Priebus is running again.

Former Charlotte mayor and new Gov. Pat McCrory will host a welcoming reception Wednesday evening at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal – a potential 2016 presidential hopeful – is the featured speaker at a Thursday night dinner.

The Democratic National Convention was held in September in Charlotte.

FIRST ON 3: Mistrial declared in baby mauling death; case dismissed

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WWAY) — A mistrial has been declared in the case of a young mother charged in the 2011 dog mauling death of her nine-day-old daughter.

After a judge declared a mistrial in Chelsea Lynn Brigman’s manslaughter trial, he also granted a defense motion to dismiss the case. Prosecutors said they would not appeal the judge’s decision, bringing the case to a close.

Jurors had begun deliberating yesterday afternoon and returned to the jury room this morning. In a note to the judge yesterday, the jury said they were split nine to three but did not indicate which direction they were divided.

Prosecutors said Brigman left her baby alone with a number of dogs around in their Clarkton home on August 30, 2011. An autopsy report says Brigman was inside the home with her father-in-law, two male friends and five dogs. Brigman told investigators that she went to take a shower, leaving nine-day-old Addyson Camerino in her car seat on a table with her father-in-law and the male friends.

According to the report, Brigman said she was in the shower 5-10 minutes when the father-in-law called out her name and said, “Your baby!” When she came back into the room, Addyson was on the floor face down in a pool of blood.

WWAY’s Holden Kurwicki was in the courtroom. He will have more on this story coming up on WWAY NewsChannel 3 at 5 and 6 p.m.
