We're following breaking news. Self-help guru James Arthur Ray was arrested tonight on manslaughter charges. You may remember three people died at his sweat lodge ceremony in Arizona back in October.
Tonight we'll talk with a woman who was inside the lodge when more than 20 people fell ill. We'll also talk with our legal analyst Jeffery Toobin about the case against Ray.
Ray's lawyer released a statement tonight. It reads:
"The charges are unjust and we will prove it in court. This was a terrible accident – but it was an accident, not a criminal act. James Ray cooperated at every step of the way, providing information and witnesses to the authorities showing that no one could have foreseen this accident. We will now present this evidence in a court of law, and we are confident that Mr. Ray will be exonerated."
We'll also take you to Haiti where there are explosives new allegations about the group of American missionaries charged with child trafficking. Karl Penhaul has the latest developments.
We also have the raw politics of President Obama's Q-and-A session with Democrats. He met with Republicans last Friday. Today he went face-to-face with members of his own party.
"The American people are out of patience with business as usual," Pres. Obama told them.
He told Democrats looking for a lesson on losing the Senate race in Massachusetts, "The answer is not to do nothing."
"We should do more, and we should do so without delay," he added.
Pres. Obama also lashed out at the GOP. We'll have that and much more starting at 10 p.m. See you then!
