Every year thousands of animals come through the doors of animal shelters – and, because of the out-of-control pet population, many end up with a death sentence. But there is a political debate going on in Michigan and around the country concerning the most humane way to euthanize – through lethal injection or the gas chamber. Karen King is on a mission. The Berrien County animal activist has been on the front lines working to get legislation passed to ban animal euthanasia by gas. "It is a shock, I mean, it is the secret in our backyard," King said.

SOUTH BEND - Tuesday marked another crucial step into the investigation of a plane crash that killed two people and sent three others to the hospital. After crews strapped several pieces of that private jet to a crane that hoisted them onto a flat bed truck, a police escort led the truck from the scene on North Iowa Street in South Bend to a hangar at South Bend Regional Airport. Investigators will spend the next several days and weeks examining the plane inside that hangar to try and figure out what caused it to crash.

SOUTH BEND — A murder trial this week ended in a hung jury in the case of a 25-year-old woman accused of leading an execution-style killing. Latrice King was found guilty in the criminal confinement of Marcus Rice late Thursday night, but jurors were undecided on whether she committed murder. Prosecutors said King instigated the plan to kill Rice whom she was upset with about a botched drug deal. The body of 20-year-old Rice was found Feb. 5, 2008, in a rural area near Dorn Road.

SOUTH BEND - An old costume collection has a new home that is actually in an old building. When South Bend's Marquette Elementary moved into their new building, the old building was boarded up and left vacant. The South Bend School Corporation had plans to demolish it but there were opponents who wanted it on the National Historic Registry. Now, those demo plans are on hold, but the building is not empty. It is now the home of the Casaday Costume Collection.

SOUTH BEND - A prostitution sting in South Bend leads to the arrest of three men. The sting took place late Saturday night and into the early morning hours. It involved the Street Crimes Unit going undercover and posting an ad for prostitution on a popular website. "No chit chat, so they're not just looking to have communication; they want to get down to business. They're trying to earn money, utilize the website for that, not for making friends," said Lt. Daniel Skibins with the South Bend Police Dept.

SOUTH BEND  - What if South Bend, named for the southern-most bend of the St. Joseph River, wasn't the fourth largest city in Indiana?  What if the University of Notre Dame and the RV capital of the world were technically in Michigan? And NASCAR drivers Ryan Newman and David Stremme, actress Vivica Fox and basketball star Skylar Diggins weren't from Indiana? Let's back up a bit, to something that happened nearly 200 years ago.  An historical marker near Johnson Road and U.S. 31 south of South Bend explains it all. The original state border for Michigan and Indiana were set in 1805, about 10 miles south of where it is today.  But when Indiana petitioned Congress for statehood in 1816, Territory Delegate Jonathan Jennings proposed that the Indiana line be moved north to its present location.
