Nation IN BRIEF : NEW YORK : Confessions Studied in Jogger Rape Trial

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Jurors in Manhattan’s Central Park rape-beating trial began their 11th day of deliberations by asking state Supreme Court Justice Thomas Galligan for a rereading of testimony on what happened between 18-year-old Kharey Wise and Detective John Hartigan between Wise’s two videotaped statements to police. Wise and Kevin Richardson, 16, are charged with rape and attempted murder in the 1989 gang-rape and beating of a woman jogger. Wise’s defense maintains that Hartigan tricked Wise into confessing that he participated in the violence.
