Verdict reached in "killing and culpability" case

Readers who participated in last month's "Tale of Two Homicides: On Killing and Culpability" exercise may be interested to know that the jury has reached a verdict in one of the two featured cases. After several days of deliberations, a jury rejected Andrew Hoeft-Edenfield's claim of self defense, convicting him of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a UC Berkeley fraternity man during a drunken confrontation. Scheduled to be sentenced next month, the 22-year-old faces a prison term of 16 years to life.

The San Francisco Chronicle and CBS News have more.
