5:10 pm
wilson says brown reached for his gun during a struggle and he feared for his safety when he fired the fatal shots. federal officials say there was no reliable evidence to prove claims that brown had his hands up when he was shot. wilson was also cleared by a grand jury back in november setting off even more protests in the streets of ferguson. attorney general eric holder spoke about today's decision by the justice dem. >> the fact do's not support the filing of criminal charges against officer darrin wilson in this case. michael brown's death though at a a* tragedy dark not involve prosecutable conduct on the part of officer wilson. >> while the justice department will not file charges against wilson they say there's a pattern of civil rights violations in the ferguson police depth. eagles fans are still scratching their heads aft last night's blockbuster trade with the buffalo bills. not sure how blockbuster it is for us. but howard eskin is live in the newsroom with more on one of the biggest trades eagles have ever
5:11 pm
made. howard man. >> i think it is blockbuster for all of us. it's actually the biggest trade in philadelphia sports in many years. not just the eagles. trading lesean mccoy is gigantic gigantic. he's arguably the best player on the eagles offense. but sports really is about change. now the one negative and i'm sure what chip kelly was looking at because he's in all the sports science mccoy has had more carries than any running back in the nfl the last two seasons. that's not a good thing for a back and it short steps careers. it's obvious that's a big reason chip moves on but the player of the eagles got in linebacker alonso is a really good player according to the people that i've spoken with, and brian baldinger thinks the eagles won in this deal. >> we got to see how the eagles spend the money so we don't know yet. it's an incomplete but i would think right now that the eagles got the better deal because i think running backs can be replaced. it's hard to free up money and then how you allocate those resources to get what you really
5:12 pm
want, what you really need fixed, they now have that opportunity. >> all right. i think when the free agency opens next tuesday the eagles will be big players in signing players. it will be a free for all next week. coming up later in the newscast what do the fans think? and more on what the experts think of this deal. back to you guys. >> all right. howard, thanks. see you then. it's the day a lot of people have been waiting for. >> the trial of the accused boston marathon bomber now underway and his lawyers say he did it. we're outside the courthouse with the very latest. plus headway in the fight against isis. iraq says it's makeing progress and they've got the video to prove it. >> later unbelievable video. a woman trapped in a burning home puts her dog fir

♪ >> happening right now in boston the trial of boston marathon suspect dzhokar tsarnaev underway he does face 30 federal charges for the 2013 attack. now take two on talking with fox's joel waldman indeed live in boston tonight. joel we mentioned a few moments ago. the defense right off the bat said it's not going to side step tsarnaev's guilt so what's the strategy here? >> reporter: well lucy good point. i should say lot of graphic and emotional testimony that was
5:23 pm
happening at late this this afternoon court recessed at 4:30. something you tony a lot of high profile criminal trials or any criminal trials for that matter the defense and prosecution in their opening statements agreeing on who did this and how they did this and the defense really coming out and admitting the guilt of their client dzhokar tsarnaev n fact i quote here the defense attorney saying saying, it was him who did it. tsarnaev the defense attorney alleges placed the pressure cook kearse at the finish line and not only that, the defense attorney says that he was look looking for children nearby and placed the pressure cooker down there naming some of these kids -- maiming some of these kids. three people died. 264 injured the defense attorney asked sort of row tory cal question, why have a trial at all? and her answer to that question is because of why he did it and the defense is contention he was influenced by
5:24 pm
his older brother tamerlan. now, when the us attorney and the prosecution the government had its chance, they came out and really blasted dzhokar tsarnaev saying and i quote here, that he believed that he's a soldier in a holy war against america just pretending to be a spectator but he had murder in his heart. 20 minutes after the bombing the prosecution said he wept over to a wholefoods and bought a gallon of milk just to show how callus he was so really back to your initial question, the strategy for the defense here is that their client should not be put to death while they do admit his guilt. lucy. >> basically his brother made him do it it sounds like that boils down to that particular essence. you're talking about the emotion, of course, this is so emotion filled. a lot of the victims that survived there in the courtroom today. who took the stand? >> reporter: well, two bus loads of victims were actual bussed into the courthouse behind me and it was obvious al very difficult very emotional day for them.
5:25 pm
five witnesses took the stand and again as i mentioned court recessed at 4:30 and it was brutal testimony. a lot of the images very graphic. as a matter of fact we were just talking about this in our satellite truck before coming on air. about whether or not we're even going to be able to show she's images eventually because they are that graphic. the marathon organizer was the first person up just talking about the history and the heritage of the marathon and after that, the owner of a boston marathon store right at the finish line and that was particularly emotional because he said that people streamed in after the bombings -- after the bombs went off and he was really torn internally he didn't know who who who help there were so many injured people. he didn't know which way to turn. after that we heard from videographer who had the wherewithal to record everything that's going on and then his sister-in-law took the stand. she lost her leg. so really very very difficult stuff to hear and also obviously the juror has to see this
5:26 pm
dzhokar tsarnaev was very stoically throughout the entire testimony this afternoon. you can get hints that the jurors were looking at him and looking at the victims and you know, they were having issues with what they were seeing. so it's going to be very very interest to go how this all plays out. i shall add there's saying this trial right now scheduleding to through june but legal experts are saying that they just -- the defense doesn't really have a defense other than the fact they don't want to see him kill. so people believe that this may be much shorter. it might only go four to six weeks and then we have the second phase which is the penalty phase to see if he's put to death. lucy. >> all right, thank you very much. fox's joel waldman live in boston tonight. now of course we're on top of this trial for the duration no matter how long this might last. you'll fine what's happening right now on myfoxphilly.com. new videos shows iraq seems to be making progress in its battle against isis. they released this footage showing iraqi troops battling
5:27 pm
isis terrorists around tikrit. the ss led coalition sitting on the side lines. while ear rain yann back militia militias are helping the iraqis and iran's growing roll in iraq is a concern to the u.s. and its allies. man's bogus 911 call leads to a gun fight with police. a 59-year-old man accused of of calling 911 to lure florida police officers to his home. this happened in lake wales flor about a mile -- an hour south of orlando. so he opens fire on the officers when they showed up over 100 rounds were he can changed in the shootout. two officers had non-life threatening injuries the map who made the call also wounded. witnesses say they police say drop it and then the shooting started. >> drop it. i heard them say drop it. pop pop pop pop. >> i look out the window and i seen sheriffs squatting down going across and that's when i told them get in the closet. >> no word on why the man opened fire on police. he reportedly has a son and daughter who both work for the

local sheriffs office. we all love girl scout cookies. thin mints are addictive. >> he is special physical you put them in the fridge and freezer. are we eating a different thin minute than people in on the parts of the country. why that a is answer yes. >> the city in uproar with news the eagles they're trading one of its most high profile players players. philadelphia sports fans aren't holding back. like that's a surprise and we we've got it. scott. >> lucy, coming up ultimate doppler is lit up. that rain changing over to wet snow.
5:29 pm
5:30 pm
5:31 pm
>> here's a live look at camelback mount tone name it hasn't been a great day but things are about to get worse out there. we should see the biggest dose of the snow this season coming later tonight maybe after midnight and on into the early morning hours. get a whole lot of snow up there and a lot here. >> i thought you were joking when you were talking about this a couple days ago. it's funny. >> not funny. >> not joking, of course, it's march, but it feels more like we're in the middle of january right now and we have winter storm warnings pretty much area wide and those temperatures are going to be dropping but right now it's above freezing by 10 degrees. so it is all rain if you're stepping outdoors. umbrellas are up. windshield wipers getting a work out. the streets are wet. visibility down to 2 miles. so we have the fog and we also have the rain out there but eventually later ton night we have those winter storm warnings warnings. in the pink area wide you can see from trenton to philadelphia
5:32 pm
to wilmington north and west, toward berks county, lancaster county, but as you move tour the pocono mountains as wells the lehigh valley only an advisories for lesser amounts of snowfall there. as we look at what's happening right now on ultimate doppler with the temperatures and also the precip in green pretty much area wide we are just dealing with the plane rain because temperatures are above freezing. 42 right now in philadelphia. 44 in millville as well as atlantic city. but as i expand the view, take a look toward the western part of the state around pittsburgh. the change over has already begun. they're looking at some of that snow. and then moving a little farther to the west around the ohio river valley, take a look at cincinnati. take a look at louisville kentucky they have switched over to a heavy wet snow and that will happen in our area as those temperatures continue to drop. look at the contrast north and west. sip gel digits right now in minneapolis. we have mid 40s in charles ton west virginia but move toward the carolinas columbia south carolina right now balmy
5:33 pm
74 degrees. so a lot of energy with this system and that temperature contrast so here's that boundary that front that we've been talking about. it will continue to sag its way through the area but that cold arctic air will rush and switch that rain over to snow. so let's zoom in a little closer and get you through this evening. all rain across the area pretty much all the time by 10:00 o'clock tonight we're watching the pocono mountains the lehigh valley by midnight and watch the temperatures and watch the contrast with the rain changing over to snow. after midnight in the philadelphia area but tomorrow morning a bonafide snowstorm heavy wet snow across the area but then that dry air cuts the snow off north and west and it lingers into the afternoon farther south and east. away from philadelphia. so here's the call. you can see a good five to 8-inchinches philadelphia norristown moving into sections of delaware and south jersey. but there could be some areas that over achieve a little over 8-inches. but three to 5-inches once you move toward lehigh valley and the poconos.
5:34 pm
so here's the timing. now through 11:00 o'clock. mainly rain wet roads temperatures above freezing. by 11:00 o'clock tonight through 3am that rain starts to mix in with sleet. approaching the philadelphia area. but by 3am thursday, when the fox 29 morning news begins hour earlier we're looking at the snow starting and continuing through mid morning 11:00 o'clock and once again that snow lingers into the afternoon south and east. it's pretty foggy right now at the philadelphia international airport. the high today only 43. but certainly we are getting closer to that normal high this time of year near 50 next week. 32 degrees tonight those temperatures drop and then as we move ahead to tomorrow, 32 degrees to start but temperatures fall throughout the day. expect major delays with heavy wet plowable snow heavier amounts farther south and east. then look at friday morning. 11 degrees. temperatures friday only into the 20's but as we move toward the upcoming weekend 40 degrees turning milder. we're looking at the springford
5:35 pm
happening early sunday morning. 43 for the high on sunday not bad and mid 40s by monday. upper 40s and look at next week. 50 degrees for the high temperature. >> there you go. >> there is some light at the end of the tunnel. >> exactly. >> which is good. >> you don't have the salt because they ran out it's going to melt. >> thank you scott. also want to keep checking our website myfoxphilly.com. the latest information right there for you on the storm and any warnings in your area. we'll be right on the home page or in our weather section. >> two big thing talking about today. the weather of course and lesean mccoy trade has him going to buffalo and eagles fans going off. >> howard eskin talked about kind of nitty-gritty of the deal earlier. sean bell in the news rom with that part of the story. sean some of these fans are not happy. >> iain, last year with desean jackson now it's lesean mccoy. chip kelly gives away team favorites in pro bowl offensive players to back years.
