COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Here are some of the stories we're following today:

A sad story out of Savannah.  Police have now identified the person that threw a newborn into a dumpster.  A sanitation worker found the baby in the trash.  Investigators traced it back to an 18-year-old high school student who admitted she gave birth and dumped her baby.

Could part of Alabama's controversial illegal immigration law get thrown out?  A repeal is possible if Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has his way.  In a letter to lawmakers, the Republican AG suggested doing away with the portion of the law requiring schools to collect information about the immigration status of new students.  Strange also wants to eliminate the part that makes it a crime for an illegal immigrant to fail to carry registration documents.  Both have been blocked by federal courts.
Another young man has come forward alleging sexual abuse by former Penn State Football Coach Jerry Sandusky.  The 19-year-old filed a complaint alleging he was abused on Penn State's campus in 2004.  The man, whose identity has not been released, says the abuse only happened once.  Eight accusers are expected to testify at a preliminary hearing next week.  Sandusky is charged with 40 counts of child sex abuse.  He denies the allegations.
