7:01 am
a fed up mom puts an end to this high-speed car chase jumping out to take on an alleged carjacker wrestling him to the ground. why the driver says her maternal instincts kicked into high gear. and good morning, america. let me check. all six of us are here. so no powerball winners. >> no. >> at this table. >> i played, though. i played. >> we all played. >> and lost. >> and here are the numbers here are the winning numbers -- right now -- 11, 13, 25, 39, 54 and the powerball is 19. so, here's the big question of the morning, does this store right here, live from princeton, texas, does that look familiar to you? because that is where one of the winning tickets was sold? the two others were sold in north carolina and puerto rico. >> puerto rico. they're already winning. they live in puerto rico.
7:02 am
and more than 30 won a million dollars with the five numbers. just missing the powerball. t.j. holmes is here. he he here with the latest. >> it's great to be with you, robin. look, let me give you the good news, literally there were millions of winners last night, the problem is, most of you only won about $4 because you matched one number. but, for the three people who matched all of these numbers, their lives changed forever last night. >> tonight, we've got a huge jackpot for you. >> reporter: this morning three people are waking up a lot richer. >> 25, 11, 54 -- powerball number 19. >> reporter: matching those winning numbers to win a share of that $564 million jackpot that's a whopping $188 million each, the fifth largest prize in u.s. history. the winners, still anonymous, but those three tickets were sold here in texas, and in north carolina and puerto rico. abc news the first to hear from
7:03 am
the texas store owner where one winning tiktd was sold. >> that gentleman, so wow, exciting for me. >> reporter: the astronomical odds of actually winning, 175 million to 1, but that wasn't a deterrent. the $500 million windfall enough to buy the lucky winners, three 100-acre private islands off thailand or america's most expensive home worth $195 million two times over. again, folks, you didn't win the powerball, the big one, but don't throw the tickets away, 33 people won a million dollars last night. four of those tickets were in new york, three were in california. two were in florida so there are some winners out there and get this, robin, there are at least 280 people that won 10 grand last night. >> hey. >> there's still some hope. >> i heard new york. >> thank you, t.j. we're going to turn now to the war against isis. president obama asking congress to formally approve the use of force against the terror group. it could lead to the first vote on war powers in 13 years. abc's jon karl is at the white
7:04 am
house. and jon, the most die vicive issue, what kind of limits to put on the use of ground troops in this battle? >> reporter: the president has said over and over again he is not going to start another ground war in the middle east. so, even as he asked for congressional authorization for the air war now being conducted over syria and iraq, he was adamant he is not planning to send u.s. combat troops to fight isis. >> our coalition is on the offensive. isil is on the defensive and isil is going to lose. the resolution we've submitted today does not call for the deployment of u.s. ground combat forces to iraq or syria. it is not the authorization of another ground war. like afghanistan or iraq. >> reporter: but, george, the resolution does leave open the possibility for a limited use of u.s. combat forces and that has some democrats very wary. about supporting it. >> right, the president trying to thread a needle between the
7:05 am
right and the left and that means this is going to be a real fight. could take weeks in congress? >> reporter: george, this could take months, and i've got to tell you there is a real chance it doesn't pass because democrats want more limits on the president's war powers. republicans are saying that he should not have any real limits on his military options. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. >> all right, george. now to the arctic air hitting the midwest and northeast. some of the coldest temperatures in more than a decade and you know ginger is tracking it. >> oh, and this is when wind chill advisories in place for 18 states. it's when we stop saying it's just february and we start saying this could be dangerous, especially if you have your skin exposed for a time. so, from north dakota all the way to maine, down to north carolina, we're talking about the core of the cold air the next two days, 18 below is the feels like in minneapolis this morning. 16 below, marquette, chicago, feels like 7 below, and this is just the first shot and it's going to get here to the east coast, 30 boston today, 39 new york. well, you say that's relatively mild, give it 12 hours.
7:06 am
because here's what's happening by tonight into early tomorrow morning you'll feel like this, 9 below for new york city and feel like zero in washington, d.c. boston, 14 below. and you think that's bad, george. this is like the antithesis of winning the lottery. this is just west of worcester, massachusetts. it's a two-lane road. you can see the yellow line right there but there's so much snow the roads aren't even working anymore. >> wow. >> more snow coming this weekend too which i will tell you about. >> okay, okay, ginger, thanks very much. we're going to turn now to the murder of three muslim-american students in north carolina. the neighbor who shot them held without bond. his wife says it was a fight over a parking space. the victims' family calling it a hate crime and tom llamas has the latest from chapel hill. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. those shootings happened just behind me at these apartments where that memorial has been placed and the victims' families tell me it's not about where they parked but what their children believed. overnight unc, chapel hill, coming together and crying
7:07 am
together, remembering three muslim students shot and killed just off campus tuesday night including unc dental student deah barakat. >> i just heard gunshots. i don't know what building it but i heard kids screaming. >> reporter: police say barakat, his new wife yusor and her 19-year-old sister razan abu salha, were shot inside their apartment by their neighbor, 46-year-old craig stephen hicks. the girls' father telling me the three were killed execution style and that he believes they were targeted because of their faith. >> if this is not a hate crime, what would be? >> reporter: hicks charged with three counts of first degree murder. police say he turned himself in hours after the killing. his wife saying the whole thing may have started because of a dispute over a parking space at the apartment complex. >> this incident had nothing to do with religion or victims' faith, but, in fact, was related to the long-standing parking disputes. >> reporter: but hicks openly posted on facebook his proposed solution to problems in the
7:08 am
middle east, atheism, and barakat's family tells me hicks complained about loud arabic conversations in the parking lot and previously threatened deah. >> he showed him the gun. he kind of warned him of a gun. >> reporter: deah and yusor barakat had just married in december. their family calling them model americans living the american dream. >> islam-phobia is a real problem and it has hit home, unfortunately, too close. >> reporter: now, investigators are calling this an isolated incident but they are looking at any clues that would point to a hate crime. the accused killer, craig stephen hicks, has yet to enter a plea. george. >> okay, tom, thanks very much. now, let's go to amy with today's other top stories. >> good morning, everyone. and we begin with breaking news, a cease-fire in the standoff between russia and ukraine. russian president vladimir putin emerged from 16-hour talks with european leaders to announce a peace deal that is set to take effect sunday. it halts the fighting between ukraine's military and russian-backed rebels and calls
7:09 am
for the withdrawal of weapons, but many questions remain including whether the rebels will keep any territory, more than 5300 people have died in the fighting. well, the cruise ship captain who abandoned his ship and passengers after hitting a reef off the coast of italy has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for manslaughter and other charges. 32 people died when the "costa concordia" sank back in 2012 including a couple from minnesota. the captain fled unrecognized on to a lifeboat. he admits now he had been showing off and steered too close to land but he remains free pending the appeals process. and retailers are asking president obama to intervene in a bitter contract dispute that has now shut down dozens of ports along the west coast until tuesday. the shutdown affecting the delivery of everything from car parts to furniture from asia could cost the economy more than $1 billion per day. well, former airline executive is being sent to prison in what's become known as the "nut rage" case.
7:10 am
the woman who is also the daughter of the airline's chairman was in first class on a korean air flight from new york when she was served macadamia nuts in a bag instead of on a dish. that triggered a full-blown tantrum and she forced the plane to return back to the gate. she's been sentenced to one year behind bars for interfering with the flight crew. and now, we want to take a moment to remember a broadcast colleague and a friend, cbs news and "60 minutes" correspondent bob simon has died. he was killed when a black cab he was riding in crashed on manhattan's west side highway. abc's david wright looks back at simon's award-winning career. >> i'm bob simon. >> reporter: a mainstay on "60 minutes." >> are you saying that you weren't the slightest bit intimidated? >> you know, i was not. >> precious few people have ever seen a jaguar in the wild. >> reporter: bob simon joined cbs news during the vietnam war. >> when the north vietnamese came to the area -- >> reporter: for five decades a
7:11 am
witness to history. >> this is israel's most advanced position on the southern front. >> reporter: held captive in iraq during the gulf war he emerged after 41 days describing how his team had been tortured. >> has it changed you? >> yeah. yeah. it's too early to tell. >> reporter: there were joyous moments too like the day nelson mandela finally walked out of jail. >> after 27 years his head was high and his fist was clenched. >> reporter: that was 25 years ago to the day the horrific car crash that would end his life. >> this is a cbs news special report. >> reporter: cbs news anchor scott pelley was almost in tears as he interrupted prime time with the news. >> our colleague bob simon was killed this evening. it was a car accident in new york city. >> reporter: anderson cooper noting the tragic irony of that fact on cnn last night. >> this was somebody who had survived so many close
7:12 am
encounters over the years, so many desperate difficult situations in the middle east. for him to die like this, it's incomprehensible. >> reporter: bob simon was 73. for "good morning america," david wright, abc news, new york. >> and, of course, our thoughts and prayers go out to the simon family as well as our cbs colleagues this morning but it is such a loss to everyone. >> no one, no broadcast reporter had deeper, broader experience across the middle east and as anderson pointed out the irony is inescapable. >> he witnessed history. he really did. we move on now to the little league team that captured the nation's attention this summer, is now making headlines for the wrong reasons. chicago's south side team has been stripped of its title for using ineligible players. some parents are fighting back. the kids are caught in the middle, and abc's ryan smith is here with much more on that. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the kids of jackie robinson west handed a crushing loss with their title stripped. both parents and kids are speaking out, asking why the children are being punished for the actions of adults.
7:13 am
>> chicago wins the united states championship! >> reporter: jackie robinson west, the south side chicago team that played their hears out to win the american little league baseball title, this morning heartbroken. their title stripped. >> we worked hard all year long. we didn't do anything wrong. >> reporter: after little league international ruled wednesday their manager and other administrators stacked their team with all-star ringers from other league districts creating a super team. >> we had to do this. we had no choice. >> we know we're champions. our parents know we're champions and chicago knows we're champions. >> reporter: now, some jackie robinson west parents fighting back claiming the title should remain theirs and this mom even wondering if race was a factor. in the investigation and in the punishment. >> it is amazing to me that whenever african-americans exceed the expectations -- >> right. >> -- that there is always going to be fought. >> reporter: the boys of jackie robinson west, one of the
7:14 am
feel-good stories of last summer coming from one of chicago's toughest neighborhoods to beat some of the country's best and even getting to meet the president. >> everybody, say cheese. >> all: cheese. >> who is still standing by the kids. >> some dirty dealing by some adults doesn't take away from the accomplishments of those young men. >> reporter: the team they beat, to win the american title, mountain ridge in las vegas, now the new american champions. >> it's really unbelievable. >> i'm heartbroken for them. >> reporter: but feeling victory is bittersweet. jackie robinson west's manager has been suspended and the administrator of little league baseball who was involved in the scheme and has been fired but little league baseball say the kids don't think they knew what they were doing or doing anything wrong. just kids out playing baseball. >> why punish the kids? >> i know, it's a tough situation and they say there was a violation so they had to do something but your heart breaks for these kids who played their hearts out. >> they did. >> parents should stay out of this stuff. >> let the kids play. let the kids play.
7:15 am
this story that you bring us, michael. >> oh, yeah. we had one carjacker behind bars this morning after his run-in with the wrong mom. we show you that high-speed chase ending with a big crash and the victims jumping out of the minivan to take the suspect down and abc's brandi hitt has more. >> reporter: watch this dramatic police chase through the streets of dallas. the whole thing caught on camera. police say 43-year-old artrai alexander robbed a store and then carjacked this white dodge challenger wednesday before leading cops on a high-speed eight-mile pursuit. >> coming up to a red light now. >> reporter: the chase ending at this intersection. >> just wrecked at the intersection. >> reporter: but it's what happens next that needs to be seen to be believed. the woman behind the wheel of the minivan jessica liesman gets out and confronts alexander. followed by her boyfriend, charles cook, in the passenger seat. >> i would use to stop whoever, whether it was him or somebody else, it's no thinking, just a reaction. >> reporter: when alexander tries to make a run a scuffle
7:16 am
ensues. liesmann grabbing the straps of the suspect's overalls and the pair finally wrestling him to the ground as police arrive on the scene. >> i think he ran up against a mama bear. >> reporter: liesmann on her way to pick up her daughter with her 13-year-old son in the backseat. said the crash set off her maternal instinct. >> probably injure my son and wreck my car, you'll pay. >> reporter: her swift response even surprising her boyfriend. >> i knew she had it in her. i'm surprised she got out. >> reporter: this morning alexander is behind bars facing charges of aggravated robbery and hit-and-run after learning the wrong way not to mess with this mama bear. >> mama didn't raise no punk. >> reporter: for "good morning america," brandi hitt, abc news, los angeles. >> she's tough. >> the mama didn't raise no punk is right, and the mom said she was yelling all kinds of things that she may not remember. but she hoped that the carjacker does remember. >> something tells me he won't forget. >> don't mess with mama.
7:17 am
>> some said we can't repeat what she said. >> yeah. >> she got the results she needed. ginger, you're taunting us with that picture from southern california. >> yeah, because i'm just -- i'm blacking out with a cold. that's not happening. let's look at this. torrey pines, california. how about that? and, yes, it looks so beautiful and everyone is so envious in the studio here but they have problems of their own. they've got high wind warnings. >> oh. >> see. gusts could go to 55 miles per hour around here, i-8 in the san diego county mountains, and, it is a big deal, santa anas bringing in the warmth but also doing this, sustained winds in the 20s or 30s and the gusts up to even 60 in some spots. go to 81 death valley, 74, las vegas. 85 yuma, and 80 for phoenix. tucson a little cloudier and cooler at 71 and the cold is creeping. it's about to get into the southeast, 68 tallahassee. but that freezing line gets into north florida.

7:31 am
stand when she talked about the day he was killed along with his friend. >> reporter: two years of grief seemed to pour out of taya kyle the moment she sat on the witness stand. who were you married to asked the prosecutor. she broke down whispering chris kyle. >> i need you here. >> reporter: millions have watched the kyles' love story in the blockbuster "american sniper" but wednesday kyle told her story to the 12 people who matter the most the jurors who will decide whether eddie routh is guilty of murdering chris kyle and his friend chad littlefield at this gun range two years ago. the judge will not allow audio from witnesses to be broadcast but you don't need to hear her to see her pain. she clutched dog tags as she walked jurors through family pictures. she also talked about the last day she saw him. we said we loved each other and gave each other a kiss and a hug like we always did. as kyle left the stand she hugged chad littlefield's mother who told the jury it would have been her son's 38th birthday.
7:32 am
>> he did not know what he was doing was wrong. >> reporter: ralph sat with his head down as he told jurors he was insane when he turned the gun on two men he never met before who were trying to help him with ptsd. chris kyle may have thought he was crazy together as they were riding together to that gun range. >> chris kyle was sitting in the driver's seat on his telephone and he texts chad littlefield sitting right next to him. he texts him that this dude is straight up nuts. and chad littlefield texts chris kyle back right behind you, watch my six. >> reporter: that's military slang for watch my back. prosecutors say ralph was drunk and high and may have had mental problems but nothing that excuses cold-blooded murder. for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news stephenville
7:33 am
texas. >> more from our legal team abc news legal analyst dan abrams and nancy grace on hln in atlanta. nancy, the prosecution beginning with the most powerful punch possible. >> absolutely by bringing on the wife taya the jury gets to know the victim in this case and that's very rare. you can search the constitution. it mentions nothing about the crime victim. this is the only way the jury gets to know to see, to feel the victim and in this case that's extremely important and what they're going to learn about the defendant in this case routh, is that he used the claim of ptsd so many times to get out of trouble, even to get out of a dui. he would use this claim of ptsd. >> and, dan, ptsd not the same as insanity. >> that's right. ptsd is not enough to say i shouldn't be held responsible for my actions. it has to be my ptsd was so bad that i didn't understand right
7:34 am
from wrong. but, look in this case this is a comparatively good insanity claim and what i mean by that is the insanity defense is always tough -- >> emphasis on comparatively. >> hang on one sec. it's really tough in a state like texas, it's really hard to win an insanity defense but they have evidence here of not just mental illness, but of comments he made afterwards that may suggest that he didn't understand what he did was so terrible. that's the important thing in this case and to have the victim himself having said this dude is straight up nuts shall that's not a legal or medical assessment but is sure helpful to the defense. >> you're not buying it nancy. >> this is what i think about that. what they're going to do is bring in surveillance video from the local taco bell that shows that right after gunning these two men down in cold blood, shooting them in the back in the back of the head he takes
7:35 am
their car, their black pickup truck, drives it through taco bell and enjoys a burrito. he's not in the middle of some -- he's not having a flashback and also ptsd from what? he never even saw battle when he was in iraq and he never even got off the ship in kuwait. >> but i don't think eating at taco bell -- >> no ptsd. >> eating at taco bell doesn't necessarily mean you're not insane. i'm not going to make a judgment about eating at taco bell but the bottom line is that doesn't change the reality that he may -- >> dan, he told his sister what happened dan. he got to his sister's house after he enjoyed his taco -- his burrito at taco bell and says i just killed two people. i just sold my soul for a truck and, again, ptsd from what? he never got off the ship in haiti. he was in a green area when he was in iraq so trauma from what?
7:36 am
he was doing this kind of behavior drugs and alcohol before he was ever even in the military. >> but ptsd isn't the point here. the point is did he have a level of mental illness from whatever cause, it could be ptsd, it could be not ptsd the legal question here is did he understand right from wrong when this happened and there are, you know look i'm not saying he's going to win this because it's a long shot but there are real arguments here to suggest that this is a guy who had between mental illness and possible criminal insanity. >> he has a tattoo that says the high life. it was drugs and alcohol. >> this trial not over yet, nancy grace and dan abrams thanks very much. to ginger with the weather. let's go ahead to montana. western montana, big sky resort. we've got video from there. you know they had 20 inches of snow just in the last week. so they say high elevations they're doing well even though so many other resorts out west are not. a quiet start to the day
