-A A +A
By Erin Hill

“We have a verdict,” a bailiff said, just as Judge Barbara K. Hobbs was about to send a deputy to ask jurors if they wanted to keep working or wrap up for the day and reconvene Saturday morning.  
It was around 6:45 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 11.  The jury had been in deliberating since just before noon.
Dekendrick Ford sat at the defendant’s table waiting to hear his fate, wearing a white button-down shirt, black slacks, black tie and shoes.
Ford was on trial for the 2011 killing of his girlfriend Teresa Manuel.
