Kerrigan Found Not Guilty In Manslaughter Case


Mark Kerrigan was acquitted of manslaughter in the death of his father- apparently agreeing in his defense that his dad died of his history of heart disease problems. The jury deliberated for a total of 17 hours over three days.

Kerrigan was convicted of assault and battery in a January 2010 fight with his father Daniel Kerrigan at the family's home north of Boston.

Here's the look from inside the courtroom...

Jury acquits Kerrigan brother in father's death:

"My family has never believed at all that my brother had anything to do with my father's death, and he would, my dad would, never have wanted any of this," Nancy Kerrigan said outside the courthouse.

Nancy and her mother plan to give what are referred to as "victim impact statements" when Mark is sentenced tomorrow. He faces a maximum 2½ years in prison on the 2010 charges...
