22 Hours: An American Nightmare Episode 10 – The Verdict

After six weeks, dozens of witnesses and hours of testimony, emotions were running when attorneys delivered their closing arguments. Then the United States vs. Daron Wint went to the jury. Some of the men and women who decided Daron’s fate take us inside the deliberation room as they weighed the evidence and came to a conclusion.

<p>During closing arguments, prosecutors sought to clear up a few lingering questions for jurors. One of them: Why did the garage door appear to open and close as Daron approached and entered as two witnesses across the street said they saw? Lead prosecutor Laura Bach said the answer was simple — Daron was holding the garage door opener in his hand. Crime investigators found it on a little side-table right inside the house.</p>
