We'll bring you full coverage and updates on Ellen Tran's 15 year prison sentence this morning. The Rhinelander woman was convicted of first-degree reckless homicide of her 20-month-old stepson at that time.
We'll bring you this and more tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.
PEWAUKEE - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he's considering at least one line-item veto of bills passed by Republican lawmakers in a lame-duck session that would cut into the powers of the Democrat who defeated him.
Walker told reporters Tuesday he might look for other line-item possibilities. He didn't give specifics Tuesday other than to say they involve appropriations.
MADISON - An environmental law center is suing the state Department of Natural Resources over the agency's refusal to hand over records related to diverting Lake Michigan water for a new Foxconn Technology Group plant.
Midwest Environmental Advocates in May challenged DNR approval of a city of Racine request to pull millions of gallons from the lake daily for the plant.
RHINELANDER - Last week, a cell phone video surfaced on social media showing a boy pushing another boy into the snow at James Williams Middle School in Rhinelander.
Another cell phone video filmed at the school shows a student punching another boy in the face before shoving him down.
The school says the incidents were staged, designed for posting on social media. But even if that's true, the videos have parents talking about bullying and aggression in Rhinelander schools.
The mother of the boy pushed to the ground told Newswatch 12 she was upset and appalled when watching the video. That parent asked to remain anonymous. Her son told her he was fooling around when he accidentally made contact with a member of a certain clique, and the push was revenge.
