Get meat from a vending machine, Whitewater rafting in Columbus

 

Here's what we are working on for News Leader 9 at Noon!

Man arrested in death of pregnant girlfriend

An East Alabama man is facing charges in connection to the death of missing pregnant woman, Cherri Dawson of Auburn. Keith Ware is being held in the Tallapoosa County jail charged with capital murder. Investigators say there is evidence linking him to the death of his missing girlfriend and their unborn baby. Dawson's family says she was 5 months pregnant when she went missing in early October. Investigators confirmed on Tuesday they believe Dawson's remains were found in Tallapoosa County about a week ago.

Get your meat from a vending machine

It's an invention you probably never thought you'd see. Two Alabama men have come up with a meat vending machine. It's called the Smart Butcher and it's located inside the Lil Mart in Odenville. It looks like any other vending machine but this one dispenses freshly packaged meat from ribeyes and pork steaks to sausages. The cuts can cost anywhere from a $1 to $6. Customers can just insert money or a credit card and out comes their meat.
