TV news employee in LA has $266M winning ticket

LOS ANGELES (AP) " A Los Angeles TV news employee has come forward as the winner of a $266 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot.

Jacki Wells Cisneros told KNBC-TV in an interview last night that her hand was shaking and knees were buckling when she discovered that she and her husband Gilbert Cisneros held the winning ticket in the multistate lottery.

She works as a freelancer on KNBC's assignment desk.

Gilbert Cisneros, who was laid off from his job two weeks ago, was on his way home from jury duty Tuesday when he stopped at a Hawaiian restaurant in Pico Rivera and bought the winning ticket.

It was the only one matching all six numbers. Two Ohio players had five numbers and won $250,000 each.
