Cleveland Police have now charged Camilia Terry, 20, with aggravated murder. The young mom is accused of killing her son Emilliano Terry, 3. Terry reported the boy missing Sunday, saying he disappeared from Kossuth Park at East 121 and Williams Avenue. Emilliano was found dead in a trash bag Monday evening within the Waste Management Facility in Oakwood Village.  Terry's other 2 children, a 5-year-old boy and an infant, are now in the care of Children Services. Emilliano's father spoke to 19 Action News. Terry remains locked up at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center and will be arraigned Tuesday. Police are having an 11 a.m. news conference. 19 Action News is carrying that live on-line and on-air.

A very cold start with temperatures in the 20s and wind chills in the teens. A weak cold front will swing through and cold produce a few flurries. The best threat of a few light snow showers will be some lake effect behind this tonight. But across Northeast Ohio, I don't expect any accumulations. Thursday dry air will hold with temperatures in the low 40s. Warmer air continues to flow in with the wind picking up out of the southwest with temperatures returning to the 50s this weekend.

TODAY: Mostly cloudy and cold. High: 39 Wind: W at 10-15 mph

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a few flurries. Low: 26 Wind: W at 10-15 mph

THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy. High: 42

Tobacco companies must publicly admit to deceiving Americans for decades about the dangers of smoking. A federal judge made that ruling on Tuesday in one of the last legal steps settling liability in the government prosecution of cigarette makers. The ruling requires tobacco companies to place messages in advertisements and package warnings about the dangers of smoking and say that Americans were "deliberately deceived."  One says, "Smoking is highly addictive. Nicotine is the addictive drug in tobacco" and another in part reads, "Smoking kills, on average, 1,200 Americans. Every day." The judge ordered the tougher warning labels six years ago but the case was tied up in court over the wording.
