Aberdeen police have arrested lillian cayson ..

Our quentin smith speaks with police about the investigation.... so quentin... this isn't her first run in with the law ?

That's right scott, cayson also had simple assault charges pending against her prior to this murder charge that she's now facing.... the 31 year old was taken into custody not long after the shooting happened... chief henry randle says this is case of a senseless act and it could've been avoided "i heard the gunhe gun shot and everything."

It was outside this home on 609 baptist street where police found 39-year-old mose lee daniels lying in the front yard shot to death... " the street was blocked off, cars were everywhere, flashing lights were everywhere, nobody couldn't go anywhere, nobody could even move.

Nearly 24 hours later, family and friends gather outside the home still devastated over what they call a nightmare.

" it's just tragic man, it's jut sad."

"when you have a heated argument and a weapon is around, this is what happens."

Investigators say the shooter and suspect knew one another.

Chief henry randle says an argument over a vehicle led to the gunfire.

" from my understanding, something about repossession of a vehicle and one thing led to another, basically got caught up in some he say she say and it just escalated out- of-control."

Lillian cayson is the person accused of pulling the trigger... after she was arrested, chief henry randle says the 31 year old confessed to the shooting.

Investigators were able to recover the weapon they believed was used in the crime.

"to me just about anytime you take a persons life based off of he said she said, or an argument, both families lose it, because you have one in the family that's deceased, when you have another one that's probably going to be sent off for a long time.

" cayson appeared before a judge earlier today.... her bond is set at 150 thousand dollars.... chief randle says the case will be presented to the district attorney's office.

Emergency dispatchers are being recognized for their service and dedication.

They're usually never seen, but when you have an emergency they can make all the difference.

National public safety telecommunicat ors week highlights those who take the role of directing emergency crews in order to get you help as quick as possible.

Stephanie poole has more..

When there's an emergency, dialing 911 is the first step that could save your life.

"often we aren't recognized as first responders.

Technically we are because we first take the initial call to send them out in the field.

Just because we aren't in the field doesn't mean we're not first responders.

We work 365/7days a week so we're never off and sometimes we're on call we have to come in.

" oktibbeha county e-911 receive about 503 thousand calls a year.

Dispatchers deal with every type of emergency you can imagine.

From fires, to heart attacks to shootings, they hear it all.

"people come in and think we're just answering the phone and then when they sit in that hot seat you have to multi-task you have to be a multi-tasker you're talking on the radio to those responding units if you're giving pre-arrival instructions you're on the phone with the caller as well you have the phone ringing you're relying information to what's going on if things are changing so you definitely have to be a multi-tasker."

Just down the road in ackerman, the set-up is smaller but the serious calls are the same.

Anita davis is the only person on duty this day.

After 18 years on the job, sometimes she knows the caller and sometimes she knows the responder that's being sent to a dangerous situation.

" we dispatch that call the officer responds and a lot of the times we don't know the outcome of that call.

If he have a small child or if we even if it's someone we know.

Maybe not closely but if it's somebody we know, we may never know what happens to that person."

While they may not always know what happens after they hang-up, they remain dedicated to keeping people safe in this stressful job.

" we keep up with them from the time we dispatch them until the time that they go back in service.

" these telecommunicators spend an average of 12 hours per day answering emergency calls.

It turns out that less than 60 percent of the total k-12 spending ends up going into the classrooms. courtney ann jackson has a breakdown of the latest report.

If you've ever wondered how the money for k-12 schools gets divvied up---this latest auditor's report may surprise you.

An analysis of the last decade reveals there are fewer teachers and students in the state.

But outside-the- classroom spending has gone up.

"if we had held outside the classroom spending the same per student as it was ten years ago, we'd have another $358 million dollars to play with, to spend on whatever we wanted to right now."

To put that into perspective---shad white says that would have been enough for an 11-thousand dollar teacher pay raise.

"part of my point of framing this as what we could've done with a teacher pay raise is to say, look everybody knows how expensive this is.

This right here represents real money."

And it's money that was spent on administrative costs---everything from superintendent and district office spending to non- student transportation and information services.

"the responsibility is really on folks like me to talk about how this money is being spent.

And my hope is, i'm not a legislator.

I don't get to decide how money is spent.

But if we can shed some light on where the money goes then maybe that stokes action at the legislature or at the mississippi department of education or at the local level to make sure these dollars are flowing where we want them to go, where parents want them to go."

White also notes the failure to spend money inside the classroom may have had on impact on the state's ability to recruit and retain highly qualified teachers.

Stinger a former indian finds her way back home... tom has the latest on some off the court hoops moves later in sports... spring has sprung and so have those pesky spring allergies.

We look at some of the biggest triggers in tonights health talk with baptist.

What is the cause of most sprin allergies?

The biggest spring allergy trigger is pollen - tiny grains released into the air by trees, grass and weeds for the purpose of fertilizing other plants.

When pollen grains get in the nose of someone who's allergic, they send the immune system into overdrive.

As trees start to bloom and pollen is released into the atmosphere, allergy sufferers begin their annual ritual of sniffing and sneezing.

Each year, 58 million americans fall prey to seasonal allergic rhinitis, more commonly known as hay fmiles, spreading a path of misery for allergy sufferers along the way.

The higher the pollen count, the greater the misery.

The pollen count measures the amount of allergens in the aire in grains per cubic meter.

You can find out the daily pollen count in your area by watching your local weather forecast.

Here are some of the biggest spring allergy offendors.

Trees including oak, pine, willow, elm, hickory, and cedar.

Grasses and weeds including bermuda, fescue, johnson, perennial rye, timothy and ragweed.

Allergy symptoms tend to be particularly high on breezy days when the wind picks up pollen and carries it through the air.

Rainy days on the other hand cause a drop in the pollen counts because the rain washer away the allergens.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist when we will discuss treatments for spring allergies.
