11:09 pm
said, okay. i will join the other 11, and so max harris got off. >> as for almena, the jurors had two arguments, one legal and one moral, implicating the warehouse's landlord. >> ten of us felt that he was guilty based basically on the fact that he violated the lease. they argued that because the engs en engs is collected and the rent and the utility bills and they knew it was all illegal, but by going along with it, these people felt that gave almena tacit agreement that what he was doing was okay. >> billings says after the verdict was announced, prosecutors asked the jurors about the strength of their case. he said because almena faced a 10-2 guilty vote,trial. now to developing news. a lightning-sparked fire kbubur

11:17 pm
demanded 100 euro and a gram of cocaine for its return. you can hear the backpack owner calling police for help retrieving his property. undercover officers responded and confronted the teens who said after they didn't know the men were police officers. prosecutors say finn elder admitted stabbing rega with this marine-style knife and gabe natale fought off and ran away. at this news conference, he said he couldn't fire his weapon at the suspects running away because it would violate policy and he was busy helping his mortally wounded colleague. but now italian media has reported varriale has changed his account, admitting they did not have their service weapons, their handcuffs or police identification and that they were wearing shorts and t-shirts at the time. finn elder's attorney in rome tells abc news those admissions
