Health benefits from chocolate? Yes, please!

Good morning!

Four days down and one to go until we reach the long weekend and the clock is ticking for you to enjoy the sun before we feel the effects of Isaac. Meteorologist Katy Morgan is saying that today's forecast will be a repeat of yesterday with sunny skies and highs creeping up to 90°.

Folks in the area are able to let out a sigh of relief after an abducted 2-year-old was found safe and was returned to her mother. Taishaionna Page was taken from the Main Library downtown yesterday afternoon and her alleged abductor, Joshua Harris, is expected to be in court this morning. FOX19's Jessica Brown is live at the Hamilton County Detention Center with more on this story at 4:30 a.m.

Boone County investigators are expected to release new information in a high-profile murder case this morning. Bill and Peggy Stephenson were found dead inside of their Florence Condo in May 2011 and so far, no arrests have been made. Brad Underwood will have the latest on the story starting at 5 a.m.

The Cincinnati Bell/WEBN fireworks aren't the only display gaining lots of attention this morning - the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity at Miami University is now suing the school for $10 million after they were busted for shooting off fireworks at another frat house earlier this month. Rob Williams and Sheila Gray will have both the fraternity's claims and the school's reaction during our 6 a.m. hour.

Residents of Villa Hills might want to start double checking the locks on their cars and homes. Over 50 burglaries have recently been reported in and around the Thirs Landing subdivisions. If you have any information on this crime wave, please call CrimeStoppers at (513) 352-3040.

Our Cincinnati Reds are enjoying a day off after taking the sweep against the Arizona Diamondbacks in yesterday's 6-2 win. Our NL Central lead count is now up to 8 games! Go out and support our boys as they take on the Houston Astros tomorrow night at GABP!

If you're a guy that loves chocolate, we have great news for you! A new study published in the Journal Neurology shows that eating moderate amounts of chocolate could lower your risk of a stroke by almost 20%! Maybe next time you sneak that candy bar, you won't feel as guilty! :)

That wraps up your news making headlines this morning! As always you can hear these stories and much more on the FOX19 Morning News followed by our Morning Xtra at 9 a.m.!
