(( One side fought to put the 14 year old boy it called a cold blooded killer in prison for the rest of his life. While the other side argued Nathaniel Brazill was just a boy who made a deadly mistake and should get nothing more than manslaughter. The jury came back with a compromise.
A conviction of second degree murder could mean 25 years to life in prison. Nathanial's attorney said his client was both relieved and saddened. ROBERT UDELL/BRAZILL'S ATTORNEY.. HE SAID IT WAS NOT TOO BAD..THEN HE CRIED AND WAS VERY UPSET. All along the defense insisted it was an accident - when Brazill killed his English teacher Barry Grunow with a single gunshot to the face. In the fifteen hours of deliberations jurors requested to review the school surveillance tape twice. it shows Brazill at Lakeworth Middle School before during and after the shooting. But what ever was the defining moment that led jurors to their verdict - the prosecution says it accepts their decision. Reminding everyone that this was clearly a case that had no victors.

((After delivering twin girls, Laura Alma and Sarah Jane, Tuesday night, Jane Swift is, at 36, the first governor to give birth in office.

Today's essentially a day off for the Governor. It's a day to get to know her two young daughters. 11:08:13 :05
Doctors expect Swift to remain in the hospital for four or five day. Then, she will return to her western Massachusetts home, almost 150 miles from her Boston office, for an eight week working leave of absence.
Carlson Bridge in front of Brigham and Women's: Governor Swift checked into the hospital last week as she awaited the birth of her twins. Her decision to work by telephone and not relinquish power to the next in succession is provoking controversy.
MOS: Guy I think she should be in the office, in the city, taking care of business. I don't think she should telecommuting like this. I think she should be hands on. 14:14:02 :08
MOS: Woman If a guy were to have a baby, wouldn't he go back to his job? I think he would. 14:15:46 :06
MOS: Woman Go for it. Why not? If she has problems, physically or something like that, then she can confront them but I don't think there's any reason for her stop governing. 14:07:16 :10
Swift is no stranger to controversy. An ethics panel found she created an "appearance of impropriety" by allowing aides to babysit for her daughter. She apologized for using a state helicopter to fly her home and she's been criticized for choosing to live so far from work.

SOT: Howie Carr, WRKO Radio Talk Show Host

As the summer wears on and she continues to collect 2600 a week people will get tired of this situation. 7:36:46 :05

What she is doing is precipitating a national debate on women in the workplace and childcare and I think that's great for the country. :07 07:32:36
