Paleontologists Louis Jacobs, SMU, and Anthony Fiorillo, Perot Museum, have identified a new species of marine mammal from bones recovered from the Aleutian island Unalaska in the North Pacific.

The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom: A new report shows a jump in the number of Texas woman killed in domestic violence cases.

Also, KERA's Kat Chow visits a conference of vertebrate paleontologists from around the world -- two of the featured attractions: SMU paleontologist Louis Jacobs and the Perot Museum’s Anthony Fiorillo, who've discovered fossils of a hippo-sized animal -- with a big snout and tusks -- off the coast of Alaska.

You can listen to the top local news stories weekdays at 6:20 p.m. and 8:20 a.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
