Good Evening. I'm Jean Jadhon.
It took jurors several hours to reach the verdict- guilty of manslaughter in the car accident that killed a motorcyclist.
Janklow's attorneys said he was having a diabetic reaction when he sped through a stop sign, but jurors apparently did not buy it.
As Jennifer Donelan reports, Janklow wasn't talking after the verdict.

Some of that warmth was needed last week.
A snowstorm on Thursday and another on Friday dumped several inches of snow at Victory Stadium.

That's because it would take city crews more than three days to remove all the snow.

[OUT Q=the situation was]


The situation city officials say was a difficult one.
The Civic Center which is in charge of maintenance at Victory Stadium believes it made no sense to send out crews until the snow ended.
Even then, workers could only use a few pieces of equipment because parks and rec was using theirs to clear the streets.
Despite the obstacles, city officials say they did a good job.
