And that's what happened as Judge Richard Matsch explained to the jury of seven men and five women...the law and how it applies to Timothy McVeigh. The judge said "you must completely disregard anything you have read, seen or heard outside the courtroom..related to this trial." Then they left the courtroom and began to decide the fate of mcveigh..who could face execution if convicted for the 1995 bombing. It's anyone's guess as to how long deliberations will take...defense attorney stephen jones had this reaction.
STEPHEN JONES/DEFENSE ATTORNEY: IF IT SHOULD HAPPEN TO GO A COUPLE OF DAYS WOULD YOU HAVE ANY PARTICULAR REACTION. I DO HAVE A REACTION AND I DO HAVE IN MY OWN MIND..I HAVE AN EVALUATION OF WHAT THAT MEANS..BUT I DON'T THINK THAT UNDER THE JUDGE'S ORDER I CAN SHARE THAT WITH YOU.))
