ever seen. >> terrible tragedyor everybody that's involved. >> reporter: after steele's hearing where she was held on $100,000 bond, her attorney discussed her state of mind. >> i found her to be certainly devastated by this. you can only imagine the shock and difficult time it is in this situation. >> reporter: and it's difficult for her neighbors to process too. >> i never saw any evidence of child abuse or anything. she did yell at them disciplinary wise. >> there was no way to predict something this heart breaking would ever happen. >> i thought it was very tragic situation that occurred. >> reporter: sometime after that fire had happened the family moved in to a hotel and then a rental home. during that period the baby was hurt and the sheriff said the child protective services was looking into that. however of course now the baby has passed away and that investigation unfortunately is over. as for the other two children they are now in foster care.
six-year-old wasn't in elementary school in pinellas county. they called the superintendent. he is not at that school any longer. >> that's correct. like i said, the department of children and families, they have the children in their custody right now. and at this point they're trying to determine what's best for the kids. >> anchor: right. okay. aaron mesmer reporting. thank you. developing right now at 6:00, pasco county, another hole right outside this home on med tear yab court. this is the beacon woods area of hudson if you know the neighborhood. sky fox was over it m workers are trying to fill it and do what they can. the hole opened under the driveway of the duplex you see there and it's pretty big. 25 to 30 feet in diameter. the residents of the property are out of town. as you can see they've got people working to fill it. we're going have much more on how this repair work is going on our skews after the baseball game here on fox 13. he stabbed his ex-girlfriend to death, cops say, then posted pictures of the murder on
mcgee knows how long he will be in prison. more on sentencing. >> this defendant is really the first in hillsborough county to take advantage of the fact that our death penalty right now is in limbo. he pleaded guilty, got life in prison. but the victim's mother put it all in perspective. yolanda mcguire logged on to skype and suddenly she was front and center at the sentencing for her daughter's killer. after taking a deep breath, she talked about the bond shared with her daughter bianca. >> like two peas in a pod. you see one, you see the other. >> reporter: and the heart break of having that bond ripped away. >> a week-and-a-half after her 25th birthday our worst fears came true. the person who was supposed to love and protect our daughter was the very one who ended her short life. >> reporter: former pro
in his chair. his next stop is prison. it could have been death row. when the supreme court put the state's death penalty in limbo mcgee took advantage of it. >> how do you plead today? >> guilty. >> are you pleading guilty because you believe it's in your best interest to do that? >> yes, ma'am. >> reporter: prosecutors say three years ago mcgee stabbed his ex-girlfriend bianca to death while she walked her dog. when the knife broke they say he went back to his car to grab another one and continued the online and bragged about it. >> there were also admissions made on social media by mr. mcgee specifically facebook. >> reporter: posting bloody pictures of her after the attack. while mcgee avoids the possibility of death row he will never leave prison alive. a harsh truth that isn't lost on this mother. >> you have the rest of your life in prison to think about
could do anything for you. >> reporter: mcgee never spoke during sentencing and neither did any of his family. back to you. lakeland is thinking about following tampa and s st. petersburg and de-criminalizing small amounts of marijuana. city commissioners met to talk about. no decision yet though. staff just gave them a whopping background report. 5,000 pages of research. lakeland's police chief says he's already made up his mind he they are especially for the sake of the young people. >> it's important that we send the right message. we're not ruining their lives. in fact, we're saving lives. >> anchor: commissioners plan to meet again on the issue and they're going invite polk county sheriff grady judd to speak about it. as you might guess the sheriff makes no bones about that he is against de-criminalization. new at six tonight, a new app airport -- for the airport that will make the customs
travelers a whole lot easier. fox 13's kellie cowan joins us now to explain how this works. kelly? >> reporter: it's pretty simple. just fill out your information and answer a few questions on the app and submit it from the plane. customs agents in the airport will get the information electrically. the app's already available in 15 other cities and now we can use it right here at tampa international airport. ask anyone who traveled abroad-- >> sometimes it is a long lines. >> lines can >> reporter: stories about custom experiences all sound about the same >> you are tired and you just got home from a long flight. the last thing you want to do is wait in line. >> reporter: but at tia relief is on the way. a new mobile app is taking part of the customs process digital. allowing passengers to skip the lines. >> the average primary inspection time for travelers using the mpc is 21.6 seconds. >> reporter: instead of filling out a paper form passengers can
customs questions through the app. once on the ground they can send the information to customs officials before even stepping foot in the airport. and once it's in, app users get a bar code to scan at mobile passport control kiosks allowing passengers with the app to skip lines. >> if it's going streamline the process and make it easier for everybody i think it is a good idea. especially here in tampa. . >> reporter: the app officials say will also make the screening process more effic effective for customs officials. >> they will have that mobile app that will provide the information to our officers here on the ground a little bit earlier so that they can focus on things that may not match up. >> reporter: unless flagged for further inspections, that's it. but the same customs regulations will still apply: gina says he always flies back from colombia
>> i always bring coffee from there. colombia coffee. >> she'll still likely face the extra search but says it's well worth it. >> sometimes tuna. because the tuna over there is really good. >> reporter: the app works on android and iphone and can be used right here at tampa international. mark? >> anchor: kelly cow ab with us. thank you very much. an ybor city landmark will reopen tomorrow $3.1 million facelift. the pool was boarded up in 2009 after leaks and cracks in the foundation. had to force city officials to close it down. it is a historic pool. above ground. built in 19 receive the. even though it's been through a few renovations the pool has not lost its historic art deco charm. >> it is architecturally significant. it is historically important. it is worth saving. so the dollars that we invested
perspective were well spent but more importantly giving the community a place where kids can learn to swim and play and during the hot summer days it is a win-win. >> the mayor will be on hand tomorrow as well to officially open up the pool. maybe a back flip for us. maybe a canon ball. we'll see. trove for treasure hits the auction block this weekend. you can get a piece of it if you want. paul, two thumbs up today. >> paul: we did have a couple of bands there's more lurking east of us. check out the activity. this is down by wauchula into polk county. and down by arcadia. a big storm also approaching ridge manor. a lot going on this evening. we'll talk about that. all you need to know for the weekend forecast in five

literally rain themselves out. i mean, they're done. the nice thing is, earlier rain kind of knocks down temperatures at least a few degrees. doesn't feel all that bad for this time of day. there's more rain lurking inland. you can see what's happening as storms are moving west northwest. they may weaken even more so as they head our way. because the air mass around tampa bay has already had rain once. and usually the second round of rain is not as strong as the first. but all of hardee county getting nailed with heavy rain, frequent lightning. also kind of jumped into polk county along us 17. this is moving to the west northwest if you are watching us in sun city center. in ruskin. in valrico. you have to watch the southeastern sky because rain is on the way and storms also firing up in manatee county. this is another example why. you have to have my sky tower app. not only do you see the rain
year. especially over the weekend when you are out and about. rain that was over the bay we watch it it's gone. that's it. so that rained itself out. now we talked about rain heading for ridge manor at 5:45 weather cast. it did just that. ridge manor has storms approaching from the southeast. lots of rain heading for you. maybe brooksville two. punta gorda, fort myers, rain. storms in se brink, lake placid, also moving west northwest. more of the same this weekend. however some of the models do drop the moisture a little bit. may not be as much rain tomorrow afternoon as we had today. the rain coverage probably goes up a little bit on sunday. it's amazing what's happening out in louisiana. this is a big deal. this is the same low. i talked about this a couple times today. the same low that gave us four
clouds and rain. now the low is stuck. it has no place to go. in a rainfall situation in louisiana is bad. some amounts already ten to 15 inches. a lot of cloud flooding. i think there's more flooding to go. a lot of times these non-tropical lows can sit in the same spot and really produce as much rain if not more rain than a tropical storm. and that's the deal here. it's not wind. it's all about the rain. and rain cannot be good sometimes. 83 west chase. 82 st. pete. sun city center 82. brooksville has 89. sarasota 83. inland 81. bartow 85 in sebring. the thermometer in wauchula is broke. it says 32. we're pretty sure at this point it's not. arcadia is story. pure tropical moisture back here continues to slowly slide away and dropping with it a ton of
i mean the amount of water in the atmosphere. still humid. typical summer weather sunday into monday and generally 40 percent rain chances every day which in mid-august is pretty typical. here is our future cast. has the storms dying down tonight. tomorrow i think even future cast kind of picks up on a slight decrease in the available water. i mean, it pops up a few storms. not that many. then things quiet down tomorrow night. and we'll see afternoon storms on sunday. tough to be completely rain free. but i think the rainfall coverage could drop a little bit tomorrow. tonight any rain ends then becoming mostly clear and 76. a few afternoon storms tomorrow. we're back up to 92. slightly better chance of storms on sunday with a high up to 91. the seven day looks like you would think it would look like back in june. i mean, this is what you get in august. you are up near 90 every day. we do 75 to 80 at night.
about 40 percent. >> coming up in sports the battle at quarterback heats up in gainesville. why the florida q. b. says it's making the entire team better. is there a kicking concern for the buccaneers. the second round pick misses the point after in his first nfl appearance. cutter tells us why h new at steak 'n shake! 24 meals under four dollars. with handcrafted steakburgers, all-beef footlongs and fresh guacamole made from scratch. get 24 meals for under four dollars.
letterman: ?bangladesh.? trump: ?well, it's good. we employ people in bangladesh." letterman: ?ties? where are the ties made?" they have to work, too. these are beautiful ties. they are great ties. the ties are made in where? china? off-camera voice: ?china.? letterman: ?the ties are made in china."
buccaneers head coach dirk cutter says the team beat themselves in two of three phases last night. though the defense looked very much improved it was the offense and special teams that did not impress the first year head coach. five turnovers did not help either. remember the bucs drafted kicke roberto aguayo in the second round. he had never missed a p.a. t. during his collegiate career at florida state. he nail add 38 yard field goal later in the game so coach cutter says it was just a case of the rookie jitters. >> again, take it for what it's worth, but, you know, we knew there was going to be a huge outcry whenever he missed his first kick. so he actually missed that on
with. [ laughter ] i think this guy's a tough minded guy. i think he showed up well in practice every day. that's what you go by. first time playing in an nfl game it was an nfl stadium. he's played in big games and stadiums before. i don't know if he was nervous or not. i'm still glad he is our kicker. >> reporter: and brandon meyers he left last night's game with a knee injury while providing a block here meyers gets caught up and coach cutter says there is no update to meyer's injury though he does not expect him to be out long term. college football. usf announced changes to their home and home series with san jose state. the bulls will travel to spartan stadium next season on september 8, 2017. san jose state visits tampa three seasons later. the bulls non-conference slate is now full through the 2020 season and includes match-ups against florida state, georgia tech and texas.
calls today's scrimmage moving day because it is a chance to see who is moving up and down on the depth chart. that includes the quarterback position where both luke del rio and austin applebee has been neck and neck. they both feel the tough competition will only make the team stronger. >> we're doing our best to make it a tough decision. and, you know, it is a friendly competition like we've said before. it's not like we have any animosity towards we definitely want the best player to be the starter. i think that we're very, very close. i think that we're executing at a very high level. i think that there's always room for improvement. for our entire offense. it's all about consistency. and that's going to be the biggest thing for us moving forward. >> reporter: the rays are in new york but that's not the big story. tonight's opening game of the series with the yankees will be the last game in pinstripes for
polarizing figures in baseball history. you can watch a-rod's finale right here on fox 13. the broadcast will begin at 7:00 p.m. with first pitch coming at 7:30. chris archer on the bump for the raise tonight. obviously -- rays tonight. some people love him. some hate him. still a historic night at yankee stadium. >> it's important for them to do this and make it a big deal because think about all that-- >> many contributions to baseball. >> some people would like to see more d >> who knows it might not be the last we see him in a uniform. there are rumors. but suppose to become a special advisor after this. we'll see. >> 6:30 tonight an eye opening report about zika in puerto rico and just how many people are really affected. >> big news for a key figure from the making a murderer
