The man accused in the shooting death of abortion provider Dr. George Tiller has been charged with first-degree murder. Scott Roeder, 51, appeared in a Wichita, Kansas courtroom today via a video hookup from jail. Prosecutors revealed today they won't seek the death penalty "under the facts and circumstances that are known at this time." That's what District Attorney Nola Foulston told reporters.
Police say Roeder shot and killed Dr. Tillman Sunday morning at his church, where he was serving as an usher.
Tonight, we'll have all the angles on the case. Don't miss the 360° exclusive interview with Roeder's ex-wife. She says his anti-abortion rhetoric was so strong it scared her. We'll also speak with another abortion provider who was friends with Dr. Tillman. Is he worried he could also be targeted for death? And, we'll talk with a woman who chose not to get an abortion even though she was told her baby wouldn't live that long after birth.
We also have breaking news on Air France Flight 447. Brazilian authorities are reporting tonight they found debris from the jet in the Atlantic Ocean, but no survivors. We'll show you where.
We'll also take you to Little Rock, Arkansas where a man is accused of homegrown terrorism. According to investigators, the man killed one U.S. soldier and wounded another at a military center yesterday because he was angry over the treatment of Muslims. The suspect is a Muslim convert. He pled not guilty to the charges today in court.
