The news begins anew with "Studio B"...

Jurors begin deliberating in the murder trial of a former mechanic charged with kidnapping, raping and killing Carlie Brucia, whose abduction was caught by a security camera. But why didn't the defense present a closing argument Wednesday? We'll get legal insight from criminal defense attorney Geoffrey Nathan and former prosecutor Steven Clark.

Then, a new study says if you're overweight, you're probably going to stay overweight — unless you're committed to making some real lifestyle changes. Researchers say obesity drugs won't work if you don't change your diet and exercise. Dr. Holly Phillips of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York weighs in.

And, should a man be the head of a women's studies department? FOX's Dan Springer reports, you decide.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
