3 things to know as you head out the door

. - Good morning, WIS friends. We hope you enjoyed your weekend! Here are your three things to know as you head out the door Monday:


1.) Stabbing Investigation:  Lexington County deputies are investigating after a reported late-night stabbing.  It happened at a mobile home park off Platt Springs Road around 11:30 last night.  A man was injured but he's expected to be OK.  Investigators say they're still looking into what led to the stabbing, and have not named any suspects.  Call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC if you have any information.


2.) Back in Custody:  After more than a day on the run, an escaped North Carolina inmate is now back in custody.  29-year old Kristopher McNeil escaped Saturday from the Brown Creek Correctional Institution, where he's serving a 14-year sentence for second-degree murder.  Officials say McNeil was found just before 11 last night near the Davidson and Forsyth County line.  A corrections officer is now accused
of helping McNeil escape.  33-year-old Kendra Lynette Miller was arrested Sunday morning.  Her bond was set at half a million dollars.


3.) Budget Deadline:  Today is the last day for Governor Nikki Haley to make her mark on the state budget.  Haley must issue her line item vetoes to the budget by a midnight deadline.  State Lawmakers are then scheduled to reconvene on July 6th to discuss any vetoes she makes and consider overriding them.  Lawmakers could be called back earlier than that if leaders in the House and Senate feel those vetoes
need addressing before the fiscal year starts Wednesday.


Your work week is starting off on a cooler note than last week.  A beautiful day is ahead with sunny skies, low humidity and temperatures in the lower 90s.
