Case of pregnant woman on life-support in Texas goes to court

Tomorrow the husband of Marlise Munoz will ask a judge to order that she be removed from life support machines. Her family says she is brain-dead; but the hospital that is caring for her says a Texas law requires that she be kept on life support because she is pregnant. Ed Lavandera has the latest on tomorrow's emergency hearing.

Anderson discussed all of this with legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos, Dr. Lisa Masterson and children's advocate Areva Martin.

Tonight on AC360: Man reunited with best friend after tornadoes

At 8 p.m. ET tonight, Randi Kaye has a heartwarming story about a man reunited with his best friend, a pit bull named Junior, after the Texas tornadoes. Jerry Shuttlesworth wasn't sure if he would ever see his dog again. The two were separated in the powerful winds.

Like Junior, hundreds of pets were left homeless after the storm. A local shelter has been trying to connect them with their owners, but it's a difficult task without cell phone service and many residents displaced.

The National Weather Service said at least 16 tornadoes are responsible for the deadly force that completely destroyed homes and buildings in North Texas. At least six people lost their lives.
