Tonight, could your taxes increase to help pay for the economic recovery? This weekend White House economic adviser Larry Summers said he cannot promise that Pres. Obama will stick to his campaign pledge of cutting taxes on the middle class. But others at the White House are saying that’s not an option. It’s your money, your future.

It’s official now. A judge granted Katherine Jackson permanent custody of her three grandchildren. But what happens to Debbie Rowe? Today, a hearing addressed her rights and also looked at who may get control of Jackson’s estate. Randi Kaye joins us live from Los Angeles to give us the latest.

And a major development in the world of biology. Researchers have tracked down the origins of one of the deadliest diseases on the planet: malaria. Nathan Wolfe, who you may remember from our Planet in Peril investigation, is one of the authors of this new study. He’ll join us for more insight on this medical breakthrough, along with 360° MD Sanjay Gupta.

Plus, Sunday marks the 40th anniversary of the Manson family killing spree. Tonight we’re launching a five-part series on the murders that are still making headlines today.

All these stories and much more tonight on 360° at 10pm ET. See you then!
