'here recently information was brought forward that alleged the fire was started intentionally by the individuals that were involved in physical altercation at the residence.' authorities say previous interviews from 2006 reported yenger got into a fight with another party goer and was asked to leave the party. both yenger and dye are being held in the wapello county jail on a 500-thousand dollar bond each. des moines police aren't saying much about the investigation into the city's first homicide of the year. police found 71-year-old norma jean mcneeley dead inside her home on

margin of error. ben carson edges marco rubio for third place. rand paul is steady in fifth place. there was more to this poll than just candidate preferences. coming up tonight at five o-clock ... jannay towne will take us further inside the numbers and show us what issues iowans are most concerned about as they head to caucus sites. tonight donald trump returns to iowa. at five o-clock tonight he'll hold a rally in marshalltown where he's promising a major endorsement for his campaign. the crowd could be in for some fiery rhetoric from trump if he follows up where he left off in an interview this morning. speaking to msnbc's "morning joe" trump called ted cruz a liar and a jerk. he says no one in the u-s senate likes cruz ... republican or democrat ... and that he'll be a better leader because people will listen to him. ted cruz says he's going to ignore the attacks on him and he won't return fire as we near the iowa caucuses. this morning he was joined by a former rival from his home state on the campaign trail in osceola.

4:07 pm
texas indicted the actors in the video. the grand jury found both actors used fake drivers licenses as part of their ruse. one of the actors is also being charged for attempting to purchase fetal tissue. planned parenthood hopes the grand jury decision finally absolves the family planning organization of any wrongdoing. "planned parenthood has never sold fetal tissue. we've occasionally let women donate fetal tissue for important medical research and that's now been proven out -- not only by this grand jury but officials in 11 other states that looked at this that all found that planned parenthood did nothing wrong. and that's consistent with our 99-year history as a high-quality, well-known health care provider for women in this country." to avoid any implications of impropriety, planned parenthood no longer charges any fees for the transfer of donated tissue. democrats at the statehouse have released their budget outline
