6:00 am
>> now on newscenter 5's "eyeopener." randy: new revelations expected today in the case of a babysitter accused of the unthinkable. but one thing has to be decided first. the factor that could change the entire case. emily: a rough day for the patriots won't keep them out of the playoffs. but they're not in the spot they'd hoped for. the fallout this morning. randy: a militia occupies federal land in oregon. the cause they're fighting for as they defend arson suspects. it's on the eye for this monday morning. >> you're watching wcvb, boston's news leader. good morning! this is newscenter 5's "eyeopener." emily: also on the eye this monday morning. it's cold enough out there for this. crews at the blue hills ski area were making snow overnight. but these brisk temperatures won't last too long. good morning.
6:01 am
i'm emily riemer. randy: and i'm randy price with cindy fitzgibbon. they'll really be able to make some snow tonight. cindy: the next 48 hours coldest by far of the entire season so far. emily: it's about time i guess. cindy: it is is january after all. that cold is is coming in with a couple of flurries in a few spots this morning. kids are going to want the heavy coats at the bus stop this morning not so much for what it's like out there now but getting off the bus this afternoon wind chills down in the teens. temperatures dropping as the day wears on. right now it's 27 in worcester. 31 in boston. we're actually above freezing on the cape for moment. you can see that wind now shifting around to the north, north of the pike. it's more northwesterly south of the pike so that is our frontal boundary. and along the front you can see a couple of flurries getting reports of a few flakes out in marlborough, framingham. not going to amount to anything. they're just flying around through the air here but they are indicating our arctic frontal boundary. this is opening the door for arctic air to pour on down. it's below zero in ottawa right now. 10 in syracuse. so that's the cold. it's going to be working on in.
6:02 am
as the winds pick up, look at this. by noontime the wind chills are going to be running in the teens. they'll be down in the single digits by about 6:00 tonight. so that's what you need to dress for. bundle up throughout the day. most of us seeing a mixture of sun and clouds today but right along the coastline late morning and into the afternoon, ocean-effect snow bands setting up. they will be most pronounced here and most persistent on the cape and nantucket. that is where we do have a winter weather advisory up late this morning right through tomorrow morning as well. watch out for reduced visibility and some slipper erodes developing here as well. let's get you out to the roads this morning. larson. hi, jeff. jeff: good morning. very heavy volume all around metro boston particularly on the southeast expressway. vacations are over. home. they're going to work. that means a lot of pressure on the roads. southeast expressway is quite let's go to the maps. we'll see what happens happening on our roads. first of all there's a minor crash that's on the ramp from 3 southbound down in duxbury to route 3a. not a big factor but there is area.
6:03 am
as you come in closer to the city very heavy volume on 128 through rand ol and braintree trying to get to the expressway. even route 3 is slow. then that expressway ride is upwards of 20 minutes. upwards of that. traffic is slow on 93 southbound through andover and it's still quite slow getting past montvale avenue and route 128. heavy traffic, randy. back to you. randy: right now we are about a truly bizarre case. a babysitter accused of out of her home in the middle of the night. and that was just the start. emily: in just hours that suspect is expected back before a judge. the eyeopener's todd kazakiewich is live in newburyport with what we hope to learn. todd? snoid emily and randy. we are hoping to learn where this strange case goes from here. as you may remember at the arraignment back in november, abigail hannah was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine if, in fact, she is competent to strand trial. at that time, a court clinician said she was experiencing hallucinations, expressed
6:04 am
thoughts of suicide, and could not participate in her own defense. hanna is charged with kidnapping the two-year-old girl from her hamilton home, beating her, then dumping her by the side of a road. a couple driving by found the toddler even as a desperate search was underway. police say she had cigarette burns on her body. the little girl's parents told police hanna had babysat for them before they fired her. we hope to learn more about this case in court today. we're looking for a motive in this bizarre incident later today in court. reporting live, todd kazakiewich, wcvb, newscenter 5. randy: right now president obama is preparing for a critical meeting on gun control. today the president will meet with attorney general loretta lynch. potential executive orders to strengthen the nation's gun laws. that includes beefing up background checks required for gun purchases. on thursday, the president will participate in a town hall meeting on gun control in virginia. emily: several developments to watch for today in the race for the white house. republican front-runner donald trump will hold a rally in
6:05 am
lowell tonight even as he takes aim at a big name hitting the campaign trail. former president bill clinton will kick off a push in new hampshire on behalf of his wife. trump calling it the worst thing she could do as the war of words between the two front-runners heats up once again. hillary clinton took shots at trump over his comments on muslims in america. and trump fired back brushing off his appearance in a recruiting video for the terror group al shabaab. clinton: you hear all of this rhetoric attacking muslims and muslim americans. it's not only shameful and offensive-- which it is-- it counterproductive and dangerous. trump: hillary clinton created isis with obama. emily: trump's rally at umass lowell is scheduled to start at 7:00 tonight. as for bill clinton, he will be in nashua at 11:30 this morning before heading to an early evening event in exeter. also today, the trump campaign will hit the airwaves for the first time.
6:06 am
>> quickly cut the head off isis and take their oil and he'll stop illegal immigration bill building a wall on our southern border that mexico--. emily: the ad focuses on islamic state militants. trump has vowed to spend $2 million a week airing the ad in early voting states like iowa and new hampshire. randy: right now a tense standoff on federal land in oregon. an armed militia taking control of a wildlife refuge. the eye's erika tarantal joins us with the move today that may ease tensions. erika? erika: the takeover started saturday in support of two oregon ranchers facing extended prison sentences for arson. they are expected to turn themselves in today peacefully. the armed militia says this is a battle over the use of public land; they want it freed from federal oversight. this after dwight and steven hammond were convicted of setting land on fire, they say, to protect their own property from invasive plants. the government says they were trying to cover up an incident of poaching. the armed protestors say they
6:07 am
people. >> it is the duty of the people to put that government back in its place. >> bringing in a militant view saying, "we're going to rise up. if we don't get our way, we're going to used armed resistance," that's just not right. erika: it's unclear whether the ranchers' move today will quell the conflict. protesters say they're prepared to defend their position with force, if necessary. schools in the area are closed for the week. the local sheriff is urging people to stay away. randy: today the mbta control board will be talking fare hikes. the group already voted to allow fares to be raised as much as 10 percent. but they haven't settled on a final number which is expected this month. activists and lawmakers argue a 2013 law was intended to cap fare hikes at 5 percent every two years. house speaker robert deleo is making a pledge for the new year-- no new taxes. he tells "the globe" the house won't propose any additional
6:08 am
fiscal year. the state is facing an estimated billion-dollar budget gap. but deleo says residents should not pay more for state services. emily: the patriots are moving on to the postseason, but they're doing it in the number-two spot. and that loss to miami was painful. just ask tom brady. number 12 is now on the list of pats players who will have injuries monitored during the bye week. another thing we learned last night-- that first playoff game will be january 16 in foxborough. and some big additions could come with it. that part of the story in our next half hour. a connecticut man arrested outside of gillette stadium with a slew of weapons is expected in court today. police say matthew bromson was drunk and acting suspiciously friday in an off-site employee parking lot. they found a stun gun, a sword, and a slingshot inside his car. bromson, who was also the subject of a 2014 standoff in connecticut, is facing several charges. randy: thousands of bags of a
6:09 am
more lethal batch of heroin are off the streets in western massachusetts. 9,000 bags of so-called "hollywood heroin" were seized this weekend in springfield. police say they were hidden in a fake car bumper. police had stepped up patrols after eight people overdosed on that batch of drugs. emily: right now in waltham, investigators are trying to figure out what started a fire that damaged several businesses on moody street. the flames broke out yesterday afternoon inside a laundromat. quickly through a space in the ceiling. at one point firefighters were ordered to get off the roof because it wasn't safe. >> my daughter and i were over at shoppers cafe to watch the football game. the next thing you know, we saw the fire trucks pull up. the smoke was so thick billowing out of the building we couldn't even see the building from across the street so it got ugly kind of quick. emily: crews eventually got the fire under control. no one was hurt. right now a lawrence man is behind bars accused of dragging a state trooper with his car.
6:10 am
police say it happened during a traffic stop along 93 south in medford. that's when the driver robert aybar allegedly took off dragging the trooper for a short distance. the trooper -- who was not seriously hurt -- jumped back in his cruiser and managed to chase aybar down. randy: the new carrier for "the boston globe" says it could take four to six months for home delivery to get back to normal. readers are angry after the paper shifted to a new delivery vendor. many subscribers haven't gotten a paper in over a week. "the globe" emailed customers, listing more than 100 zip codes with delays yesterday. a half-dozen zip codes were in boston even after "globe" managers and staffers volunteered to take on the deliveries themselves. even neighbors have a story to tell. >> my neighbor got one on saturday. right after christmas. we didn't. i'm not quite sure what's going on. >> now it's eight days, and i'm
6:11 am
just wondering if we're ever going to get our paper again. randy: in a statement, "the globe" says a.c.i. media took over distribution monday with a new staff of 600 carriers who need to learn new routes and new addresses. emily: 6:11. this morning we're getting a first look at the tragic "el faro" shipwreck. randy: the images from 15,000 feet under, and the mission they could revive. an armed robber gets the tables turned on him at a 7-eleven. the handy object a customer used to defend the store. emily: new this morning. germs where you least expect them. restaurants' dirty secrets ahead. cindy? cindy: i am expecting some nova scotia and-effect snow bands to set up on cape cod. they will be localized for the cape and the coast, but cold air is coming in for everyone. we'll time it out for you ahead. first take a look at temperatures. you're getting ready to head out the door right now. 20's to around 30 degrees. you will want the heavy coat today because wind chills, take

6:14 am
caroline." well, that's sweet callahan. emily: you can always sing your own tune in your own wake-up just go to the front page of and upload it in the u-local section of our website. cindy: we'll be singing a different tune today. it's cold outside. emily: teeth chattering at the bus stop. cindy: especially later in the day. you think the morning is cold? in the afternoon it should warm up but it's a backwards day today. the coldest air of the entire season moving in. wind chills will be dropping down below zero tonight. down below zero as you're heading out the door tomorrow morning. all the while that cold air is blowing over the relatively milder ocean waters here. that northerly wind picking up that moisture on cape cod bay. going to deposit on cape cod and nantucket. we do have a winter weather advisory up late this morning. these bands will keep going tonight. this is in effect through tomorrow morning. reduced visibility and slipper
6:15 am
erodes developing on the cape. this is a localized thing. we're seeing a couple of flurries through metro west. framingham up to way land over to marlborough down to westborough. dropping toward milford now. these are some very light flurries. a couple of flakes flying in the air. many of you telling me about them on twitter this morning. appreciate the observations always. you can see not a huge deal this morning but what this is, you can see how the winds are north of the pike and then more northwest south of the pike. this is our frontal boundary moving on through. this arctic front is is just opening up the door with that shifting wind to the north to allow these arctic air which is sitting up across canada right now and bleeding in to far northern new england. this is going to be dropping south ward as the day wears on. so these temperatures this morning mid 20's worcester upper 20's lawrence to beverly. look at boston 31. it's above freezing on the cape. that is is not going to last. the temperatures are slowly going to trickle down as the day wears on. by noontime we're down in the mid 20's, lower 20's by this evening and all the while the winds are picking up out of the north.
6:16 am
you're heading out on your lunch break. could feel like it's in the teens. those wind chills drop even further tonight. they're getting down below zero. real cold stuff on the way. now those northerly winds are going to help to generate some of those ocean-effect snow bands starting up late morning and then during the afternoon they may try to pivot back toward cape ann, coastal plymouth county. primarily it is for you on the cape where they will be most persistent through the overnight hours and into tomorrow morning. we may see accumulation on the order of one to up to four inches and localized heavier bands. outside of that a coating to maybe an inch coastal plymouth county and up to cape ann. overnight low temperatures single digits around 11 in boston. a cold start tomorrow. lots of sunshine on the other side of this high pressure. milder air is waiting in the wings. that arrives on wednesday afternoon as we're back up to around 40 degrees but another cold one tomorrow. forget what the thermometer says. out the door tomorrow morning it will feel like it's below zero. wind chills in the single digits through lunchtime. it will take us until the afternoon to feel like it's in
6:17 am
the teens so a cold one on tuesday. moderating temperatures midweek. 40 heading into the weekend when a storm approaches. that one could be a messy mix of rain and snow. so watching that heading toward the weekend. jeff: i think i wore the wrong coat this morning. cindy: you need a heavy one. dig it out. you haven't needed it all year. you'll be ready tomorrow. jeff: not this afternoon apparently. a busy commute. a lot of traffic as opposed to last week when so many people were on vacation. we have sky 5 up over route 128 traveling through the randolph stretch right in the vicinity of route 24. you can see there's a lot more traffic than we had last week on our roadways. fortunately no big incidents to talk about. we've been collision-free. let's go to the maps. at least no major collisions that are affecting us. it's very heavy on 128 just around where sky 5 was heading toward the southeast expressway. and route 3 is quite slow getting on through braintree as well. that expressway drive time is now about 25 minutes. again that will be busy. won be too long until a half-hour ride into the city. fairly slow traffic on 93 southbound. it begins at wilmington and
6:18 am
continues toward the city. not jammed but it's certainly sluggish volume for travelers there. at the moment the turnpike continues to move quite well. an 18-minute right from 495 and 128. the "t" had cancellations on the fair mount line. keep that in mind. emily: in the right place at the right time. an armed robber at a convenience store in new york had no clue what was coming. as he's demanding cash from the clerk, a customer with a large flashlight rushes into store and starts hitting him in the head. this was all caught on camera at a 7-eleven just outside of buffalo. the robber managed to stumble away; police eventually caught him. randy: we are getting our very first look at the "el faro" cargo ship on the bottom of the atlantic ocean. this is new video of the wreckage, 15,000 feet deep in the waters off the bahamas. the ship went down after the engine lost power during hurricane joaquin. 33 crew members were killed. the ntsb released the footage of the debris last night. cars that were part of the cargo
6:19 am
along with office equipment on the sandy bottom. the video was captured by a deep-water, remote-controlled sub. three crew members with local ties were killed when the ship sank-- jeff mathias, keith griffin, and mariette wright. the ship's black box was never recovered. federal investigators are considering a new mission to try to find it. emily: asian stocks plunged today, forcing markets in china to stop trading for the day. weak manufacturing data and tensions in the middle east weighing on the markets and driving up oil prices. right now u.s. stock futures are sharply lower, down more than 250 points. randy: resolutions still in place? trying to stay social and healthy this new year? if you're dining out, here are three surprisingly dirty places in your favorite restaurant. first, the table. experts say significant numbers of bacteria, including e-coli, can live on tabletops.
6:20 am
second, ice. cold drinks can be refreshing, but ice makers aren't cleaned nearly as often as they should be and may harbor bacteria. last, table condiments. things like salt and pepper shakers and ketchup bottles are most likely never wiped off. and if they are, it's usually with a rag used to wipe tables and seats. emily: that is just disgusting. randy: i know it's disgusting. emily: pretty much just stay home. still ahead, you've heard of christmas sweaters, but one guy is upping the ante when it comes to festive and fuzzy. randy: the accessory he grows himself, ahead. erika? erika: then new at 6:30. a wedding ring lost at store has some distinctive features. the markings that could get it back to its rightful owner. and new information on the boy who fell off a ski lift this weekend. his father's claims about the safety risks at the mountain. and police say this man's license has been suspended 88 times.
6:21 am
hide that poor record.
6:22 am
6:23 am
cindy: 6:24 on your monday morning. look at this. those are snow flakes flying through the air down in foxborough right now. we've got a couple of flurries moving through areas west and now southwest of boston. this is just the arctic front that is opening the door for that. zero in montreal right now. it's 31 in boston. it's going to get colder as the day wears on. so just a can couple flurries this morning. you can see them here on the radar. ocean-effect snow showers going to be setting up on cape cod later today. in the boston area it's all about the cold. wind chills will be dropping into the teens. that's what you need to dress for as we head into the afternoon, but that snow will make for reduced visibility and slipper erodes on the cape through tomorrow morning where our winter weather advisory is in effect. emily. emily: cindy, thank you. it is 6:25. erika is back with this morning's eyepoppers. erika: a little boy in australia is becoming the latest internet sensation for this feat. he was caught on the big screen at a cricket game devouring an
6:24 am
all. everything. he's alone. where is everybody? he's being dubbed the "watermelon boy" by his fans. "hashtag watermelon boy" started trending on twitter. and of course there are plenty of memes. emily: that can't be good, right? erika: i wouldn't think so. it's either very disturbing or very clever. i don't know. an idaho man is raising money with his back hair. mike wolfe has his back shaved to match the month of the year and then creates a calendar. here the month is january. happy new year. and here is july. emily: here is july. erika: wolfe calls the project "calend-hair." some proceeds go to the "gates of hope," a charity through wolfe's church to benefit an orphanage in kenya. emily: that's nice. erika: that's intensive growing power. emily: he has a blank canvas every month. erika: his middle name is chia.
