Monfils trial recesses just in time for verdict 'isrtw.f By Anne Klemm Press-Gazette Press-Gazette Press-Gazette People attending one high-profile high-profile high-profile homicide trial took time to catch the end of another Tuesday Tuesday afternoon. Testimony in the Tom Monfils homicide trial recessed for lunch at noon Tuesday just in time for people to catch the verdict in the O.J. Simpson trial. About 20 lawyers, relatives of defendants, court security officers officers and reporters ducked into the media room at the back of the courtroom to watch the verdict verdict on television monitors. Another half-dozen half-dozen half-dozen people waited outside the room. A short gasp ran through the room as the verdict was announced, announced, followed quickly by the buzz of reporters interviewing lawyers for their reactions. Most people left quickly. The verdict disappointed Brown.County District Attorney John Zakowski, who said he's rarely seen a case with so much physical evidence. "I just hope (the verdict) wasn't based upon emotion and the race card but because they looked at the evidence." Zakowski Zakowski said. Avram Berk, one of defendant Dale Basten's lawyers, said the decision didn't surprise him, but it was difficult to predict a verdict verdict without seeing the whole case. The verdict also didn't surprise surprise Jonathan Smith, one of defendant defendant Mike Hirn's lawyers. He felt that the jury's quick deliberation pointed to an acquittal acquittal because jurors would have taken longer to go over the evidence otherwise, he said.
