TBS Today, Dec. 12

We spent the morning in court watching an emotional sentencing hearing. We'll have that story for you later this week.

In the meantime, we have another significant update on Friday's stabbing in the Claremont neighborhood.

We just spoke to author Diana Paxson about what happened to her and her son, Ian Grey, on Friday at Greyhaven, her Berkeley home. Here's what we learned.

We'll continue to follow the case.
