There are a number of things going on today. Here’s what we’ll be following.

- Adam is covering the court martial for Lt. Ehren Watada out at Fort Lewis. It’s a high-profile military case and has attracted a ton of attention around the country.

- The suspect in Friday’s early morning homicide outside a Hilltop gas station is expected in court this afternoon. Raymond Lonnell Simmons, 24, was killed during an argument with another person. The suspect, allegedly, intervened and fatally shot Simmons. The suspect was booked into Pierce County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder.

- The woman suspected of gunning down her ex-boyfriend outside a Buckley tavern late Thursday also will be in court this afternoon. Christopher Smith died in the parking lot of the White Horse Restaurant. The woman was booked on suspicion of first-degree murder.
