(((TRACK) Cambridge, Massachusetts Its a case thats brought national attention to the issue of parental violence at kids sporting events. Thomas Junta is charged with manslaughter in the beating death of Michael Costin. And now a jury must decide whether the killing was an act of rage or self-defense.

(SOT - 6:25:39) Alice Richmond - Legal Analyst

You do have in the law an obligation to retreat in other words to get yourself out of trouble to move away from the fight.

(TRACK)


The fight between the two men broke out at this hockey rink in Reading, Massachusetts on July 5th 2000. Costin was coaching his 3 sons and Juntas son at a hockey practice when Junta allegedly got angry about excessive checking. Prosecutors say Junta, 6 foot one 275 pounds, pinned down Costin, 6 foot 150 pounds, and repeatedly punched his head against the floor until Costin lost consciousness. He died a few days later.

(NAT - trial)



(TRACK)

On the first day of the trial, jury selection was slow, while prosecutors and defense lawyers argued over the admissability of autopsy photos showing the extent of Costins injuries.

(SOT - 13:20:18) Shelia Calkins/Prosecutor

The reason this is important your honor is because the defense is going to argue that this was minimal force.

(SOT - 13:20:38) Thomas Orlandi/Juntas Lawyer

I would suggest that to look at the inside of a persons skull is gruesome and gross and sickening and horrible.

The children of both Junta and Costin could testify. The trial is expected to last a week. Gretchen Carlson, CBS News.))
