The jury had been out for two and a half days, and on the night of October 21, 1977, no one really thought they would reach a unanimous decision before calling it a day. Court officials and attorneys had gone to dinner or retired for the evening when they were suddenly called back in to the City-County Building. Here you can see how the whole scene played out, from the full reading of the verdict broadcast live on local TV to the chaos that followed as the media scrambled to interview defense attorneys Nile Stanton and Dick Kiefer; Tony’s brother Jimmie Kiritsis; and a rare clip of Deputy Prosecutor George Montgomery.
