7:33 am
so far, the police have arrested no suspects. they will be combing through all the tape from the cameras around here. this is yet another blow to the city of paris. so much so, that a short time ago, the mayor of paris put out a statement calling this a very rare act and saying that kim will always be welcome in paris. george? robin? >> thank you, alex. we move on to a new twist in plot. police in florida arresting a single mom. accusing her of arranging the murder of a prominent law professor. abc's matt gutman has more on that. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. authorities portray katherine magbanua as a femme fatale. an ugly "war of the roses" type of divorce. this morning, katherine magbanua is facing a first-degree murder charge for the slaying of professor dan markel. police say markel was gunned down in 2014 as part of an
7:34 am
orchestrated by the wealthy family of his ex-wife, wendi adelson. police say the 31-year-old magbanua is the link between the triggerman and wendi adelson's family. sigfredo garcia is the father of magbanua's two children. and police say magbanua was the girlfriend of wendi adelson's brother, charles. did he have anything to do with the murder? >> no. he's been looked at because he had a dating relationship with katherine. >> reporter: the motive? for the alleged hit? the adelsons believe they were desperate for wendi and her two children to move closer to them in florida, and he was standing in the way.
7:35 am
was due to the bitter divorce that was ongoing. >> reporter: an arrest affidavit claims magbanua made cash deposits totalling about $50,000 in the months after markel was killed. police say she was also compensated with breast augmentation just three months after the murder, and that an informant told them charles adelson picked up half the tab. the attorney for magbanua says they want her on bond so she can take care of her two children. police even set up an undercover sting to get information from wendi adelson's mother. in this elaborate sting, that undercover agent is trying to draw out the adelsons by posing as the brother of one of the hitmen. >> she has the paper. >> reporter: police allege the sting set off a flurry of calls
7:36 am
of the alleged hitmen. an attorney for the adelson's told us her arrest smacks of desperation. the trials for the two alleged hitmen are scheduled to come in the next few weeks. authorities are trying to flip them, hoping they'll testify against the adelsons. robin? >> all right, matt. joining us abc news legal analys it can be so confusing. what do you make of the new arrest and charges? >> so remember, what the allegation is, what the theory is for the prosecution is, family wants guy dead. family reaches out to the woman who was just charged. she finds hitmen and they kill mar markel. okay. the problem is that the woman who is charged is effectively the middle person.
7:37 am
you have the hitmen charged. now the middle person who is charged. but you don't have the people who the authorities seem to think initiated this whole thing charged. if someone in the adelson family is hiring a hitman and paying her to do it, well then, of course, they're going to charge that person. except no one in the adelson family has been charged. >> what evidence do they have against this woman? >> look, they have -- they were talking about this financial -- >> the cell phone. >> the cell phone records. she does have these connections. remember e, her. she -- i'm sorry, so confusing. the parent of her two children is the hitman. and she was having an alleged relationship with the adelson. and so you got, they believe, a lot of evidence connecting her to both sides in this. but again, without that connection to adelson, which the prosecutors believe is the reason this happened, the theory that i've got to believe, this relates to something matt just said. they're trying to turn the
7:38 am
or the adelsons to turn here, so they charge the middle person who both sides may have sympathy for. >> hard to keep up. but need to. thank you. >> not the last we're going to hear about this one. coming up here, the fire storm around the new film, "birth of nation." robin's interview with the man at the center of it all in the next hour. and big news from facebook. could change the way we all shop online. you'll hear ant it on the big board in just two minutes. online. you'll hear ant it on the big

7:42 am
was described. if they see a pattern, that seller can be banned from the marketplace. i don't know. would you feel more comfortable buying from a friend of a friend on facebook or someone on ebay with a five-star gold rating? >> that's a good question. that's one that people will be scratching their heads over. every time i pay with cash these days, people are like, what's that about? thank you, becky. now to a new battle over high school dances. "the wall street journal" highlighting schools around the country that are banning them because of concerns about a lot of students and parents don't like this. t.j., what is going on here? >> this ain't "footloose." right? nobody in that movie was trying to keep kevin from dancing because they thought he would show up to the prom drunk. that's what we're talking about here. a school outside of boston said it's not worth the headache. kids are showing up falling all over the dance floor. throwing up. >> liability, too. >> they're saying, what's the point? even though underage drinking
7:43 am
more common. kids don't drink as often, but when they do, they are trying to get plastered. th they want to get drunk. back in the day, we had prom. they have the spring fling, the fall dance, the senior, junior, sophomore dance. they said, forget all those. we'll just do a prom. >> the school is taking matters into its own hands. but people are saying it's up to the parents first. >> you talked about liability. suppose some kid god forbid gets drunk at the school, gets in a somebody else. the school could be liable. people are look at this like you're throwing out the baby with the bath water. you have a couple of bad apples. overwhelmingly, the kids are good. why am i policing the schools? they are saying. you have responsibility at home that they're not showing up drunk. >> the way they are showing up. >> all right, t.j. let's lighten it up. a little more "saturday night live." you saw alec baldwin and kate mckinnon taking on that debate.

7:45 am
nuanced take of hillary. giving us the outer hillary and the inner hillary at the same time. the initial performance. strong. >> we haven't had this reaction since tina fey with sarah palin. and sarah palin's numbers dropped after what tina fey did. i think about 16% in 2008. what kind of impact do you anticipate? or is there going to be any impact because of this? will there be in? >> there will be none. parody and satire are fainting dead away in the face of reality. there is just satirize or pardy what has gone on. >> you just lit chris up with that question. >> how often have we been saying, this is like an "snl" skit? what we're seeing happening on the trail. >> it's amazing to witness. you know? and you saw last -- you saw in that debate sketch. they made a joke on hillary with the miss universe thing. they had her call miss universe a prop. and that was kind of an
7:46 am
show. saying the job that used to be done by comedy to get under the skin of candidates is now being done by the candidates themselves. that's one of the ways this is different than anything we have seen before. >> a parody-proof election. >> chris, thank you. becky. shaking your head. t.j., thank you very much. always good to have you. and the emotional good-bye from a sports legend, vin scully. and breast cancer breakthrough. angelina jolie's doctor is here with new recommendations and ways to prevent it. come on back. recommendations a

8:19 am
whether it's against people of color, people in the lgbt community. so many people day to day are facing the things that are so disheartening and are corruptive to america in the same way there were systemic crises back then. >> it's a powerful film to say the least. the cast is amazing. we'll have many of them here. you did not have to come out here. you could have let your cast members do it. we appreciate you coming and discussing this. and "the birth of a nation" three days out. coming out on friday. coming up, the latest in the battle against breast cancer. it seems age isn't slowing you down. but your immune system weakens as you get older increasing the risk for me, the shingles virus. i've been lurking inside you since you had chickenpox. i could surface anytime as a painful, blistering rash. one in three people get me in their lifetime, linda. will it be you?
