It’s Monday, March 11th – and NBC 6 has the top six stories you need to know for the day.

Weather wise, it will be a warm start to the week with high temperatures close to the mid 80s ahead of a slight cool down in the middle of the week before the higher temps return.

No. 1 - An investigation is underway after a woman allegedly killed her husband at their condo in Southwest Miami-Dade.

According to police, the incident happened at the Oasis Condominiums on 67th Ave near 47th Street. Police said a woman, who has not yet been identified, fired a gun at her husband and then called 911.

No. 2 - Police are on the hunt for a burglar who they say stole more than $7,000 worth of goods from a home in Davie.

Police said the incident happened on February 4th at the 2900 block of Southwest 79th Terrace. The victim left his home and came back two hours later to find the rear sliding glass door shattered and the home ransacked.

No. 3 - President Donald Trump is reviving his border wall fight, preparing a new budget that will seek $8.6 billion for the U.S-Mexico barrier while imposing steep spending cuts to other domestic programs and setting the stage for another fiscal battle.

Trump's proposal, titled "A Budget for a Better America: Promises Kept. Taxpayers First" and set for release Monday, "embodies fiscal responsibility," said Russ Vought, the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget.

No. 4 - A member of Venezuela’s national assembly tweeting dozens of people are dead because of the recent blackout there. These deaths, all reported in hospitals across Venezuela, have been in the dark since last week.

No. 5 - Ethiopian Airlines has grounded all of its Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft as "an extra safety precaution" following the crash of one of its planes in which 157 people were killed, a spokesman said Monday, as Ethiopia marked a day of mourning and the plane's damaged "black box" of data was found.

Although it wasn't yet known what caused the crash of the new plane in clear weather outside Addis Ababa on Sunday, the airline decided to ground its remaining four 737 Max 8s until further notice, spokesman Asrat Begashaw said.

No. 6 - A 7-year-old boy is fighting for a second chance at life. Julian Morales was at the Calle Ocho festival in Miami Sunday as he suffers from a rare, life-threatening blood disorder and bone marrow failure.

According to Be The Match, people are more likely to match someone of their same ethnic background, so he hoped someone at the festival will be his match for a blood stem cell transplant.

Anyone can check to see if they are a match for Julian. Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 44. Anyone interested in participating can text 'Calle Ocho' (without quotation marks) to 61474 and Be The Match will send a kit to your home.
