4:00 pm
murdered his ex-girlfriend at the university of virginia. good afternoon. i'm pat lawson muse. >> i'm jim handily. it is our top story today. they saw a door with a hole in it, her testimony from police and medical experts, as well as friends and family. >> now, jurors have to weigh all of the evidence and decide if the death of yeardley love was intentional or was a tragic accident. julie cary joins us live from charlottesville with the latest on this day of deliberations. >> reporter: deliberations got under wait 9:30 this morning, so we are now entering the seventh hour of deliberations and judging from some of the questions that these jurors are sending into the judge, they are being very methodical as they consider the case against george huguely. one of the first things a jury did this morning was asked to view once again the videotaped police interrogation of george humely. along with that dvd created by the prosecutor into the room went the big screen monitor in this trial throughout. the jury also took some other
4:01 pm
evidence into the jury room, including the bedroom door. that door to yeardley love's room with the big hole kicked through it. it is now in the jury room as they deliberate. prosecutors, of course, say george huguely kicked through that door to get to yeardley love just before midnight on may 3, 2010. they say they shook her, beat her head against the floor and then left her to die on her bed. she was found two hours later by her roommate laying face down in a bloody pillow. now, defense attorneys say that former uva lacrosse player george humely never meant to harm yeardley love that he just went into her room to talk over problems that the couple had been having and that the two got into an altercation and she was killed by accident. of course, in closing arguments over the weekend in that rare saturday court session, we also heard sharply contradictory versions of how yeardley love died. the prosecution has argued all along that she died of blunt force trauma to the brain. the defense attorneys told the jury and their medical experts told the jury that yeardley love
4:02 pm
actually died of a type of asphyxia, that she was intoxicated and that when she was tossed on the bed, she essentially suffocated in her pillow, so jurors to sort out what version they believe the cause of death is. even in closing arguments on saturday though, the prosecution backed away from one of the most serious charges against george huguely and that is a charge of premeditated first-degree murder, however, prosecutor dave chapman did urge jurors to strongly consider another type of first-degree murder charge facing huguely that is felony murder, a killing done in commission of a crime. and we know that george humely was also accused of taking yeardley love's computer, so, that was a robbery that went along with the killing. chapman also said jurors should consider second-degree murder. george huguely's attorney asked the jurors to look more closely at involuntary manslaughter. they say that at the very most, they see this as an accidental death, along with involuntary manslaughter, the jurors have one other charge to consider and
4:03 pm
that is voluntary manslaughter, they also have to sort through various larceny and robbery charges that go along with the alleged theft of the computer. so again, the jurors heading into hour seven here. they seem to be very carefully going through their jury instructions as they consider all these charges against george huguely, we will bring you the latest when this jury does have a verdict. live from charlottesville, i'm julie cary. back to you. >> thank you, julie. it has been a long time in the making. today, president obama took part in a ground breaking ceremony for a new smithsonian museum dedicated to african-american, history and culture. it will go up on the national mall, not far from the washington monument. mark barger has more on the big momentous day. >> two, one, break ground. >> reporter: it is hist, hundreds of years in the making, the groundbreaking on the national mall for the national museum of african-american history and culture. >> this -- this is a milestone.

4:08 pm
over the stolen valor act. the california man was prosecuted under that act for falsely claiming he won the medal of honor. today, some justices seemed concerned about restricting freedom of speech and criminalizing other kinds of lies if the act is upheld but others say the stolen valor act is very specific and it doesn't threaten first amendment rights. now to the republican race for the white house. there is some good news for mitt romney today. the latest nbc news poll shows him in a virtual tie in his home state of michigan ahead of tuesday's primary. romney made news today when he said the wealthy ought to pay higher income taxes. steve handlesman has the latest from the campaign trail. >> reporter: in arizona, mitt romney call forward 20% across-the-board income tax cut but raised eyebrows by also calling for a tax the rich more plan, like president obama. >> i'm going to limit the deductions and exemptions,

4:17 pm
of dust mites, don't forget about any sort of foam rubber and egg crates are, things like that get moldly. sadly, tough kick the dog out of the room once and for all and that includes the cat, too, shouldn't be sleeping with that unnecessary exposure to animals. lastly, stuffed animals in your kids' rooms, get them off the beds, hang them up in your nets above the bed, unless you can put them in the wash. >> go to the family room where we spend most of our time. what do we need to do there? >> we spend most of our awake time there what we spend time doing laying down on the floor, especially playing games, a kid, wrestling with the kid, make sure you get rid of the carpet egg. that is really where you spend an awful lot of time and had to get rid of the carpeting all over the house that would be wonderful, think about getting rid of it in the family room. upholstery, in general is not your friend. you want things like leather furniture where you can check for mold in that living room,
4:18 pm
where you would find that, strangely enough is in plants, particularly in house plants. think of things like washing the pots, scrubbing the pots and repotting the plants that could be full of mold. don't forget the mold around the seals, contracts, window, doors as well and get a dehumidifier. forget about the hepa filter. really not so proven to work. >> okay. let move to the kitchen. what could possibly hurt you. >> so much stuff in the kitsch than can do you in allergy time and the number one thing would really be, again, the mold, check for leaking faucets and then all of the stuff that you do for cleaning is usually kept in the kitchen, so think of when you reach for the latex gloves, some people were allergic to latex, be careful with that, when you do the cleaning supply, many people who have allergies, really irritated by all those strong scents that are in the chemicals and lastly, sadly, roaches. roaches are a big problem. they are the number one cause of pediatric asthma in the innercity, set those roach traps, get rid of all the open
4:19 pm
food containers that would attract more roaches. keep that kitchen clean. >> okay. all right. we keep the bathroom clean, but that's not necessarily enough. >> because it can be full of mold. you have to look around, look on the ceiling tiles, look particularly around the tiles, around the bathroom, around the toilet, get the mold out of there the other thing that's in the bathroom is the medicine cabinet and you should clean that out as well. think about even though these medications haven't technically expired, if you are reaching for a nasal spray that you used last fall, that's been sitting in the medicine cabinet three or four months, document want to stick that up your nose, don't want to stick those drops in your eyes and lastly, don't want to stick those asthma inhalers in your mouth. many asthma inhalers that are powder asthma inhaler, if they have been opened for so long, they only can be opened for 45 days out of the foil package go get new ones even though they haven't technically expired. >> i don't have to ask you about the garage, i know to clean that out. >> the garage is if you have a science experiment going on in the garage, a bunch of fertilizer and chemicals for the
