9:35 am
anything. >> reporter: let's talk about the possible plea deal. any chance that derrick almena will agree to testify against max harris. >> the details of that plea agreement have not been released. we are not sure how long it could be. the attorney for derek they wan to 10 years or less so he can see his children grow up. it's unclear if he would testify or do anything against max harris. >> plea deal, if he takes it, what do you think the family members of the victims think about it. >> they want to see someone responsible. derrick almena told us in the interview, i understand if all the families hate me and i'm sorry for that. so, finally, we hear this change of tone of where he is taking responsibility or, you know, having that time to think and say, i was the master tenant there, i should bear
9:36 am
some of the responsibility but not complete responsibility. >> if almena pleads out, could that have an effect on the jury in the harris trial? >> that is an interesting question. it could. one of the things that almena brought up, you heard there, he didn't want to drag the families through months of testimony. so, to have to still go through that and have those families go through that, that may be a tough thing -- right now we have heard that they are arranging travel schedules to get everyone together for the trial. it comes down to today, later this afternoon, we will find out if derrick almena pushes forward to trial or take the deal. >> you will have an update. >> yes. >> thank you. for more on the other headlines we are working on, let's go to pam cook. >> following a number of stories for you today. we are in the city this morning
