Man guilty on all counts in Bucktown bat beating
Guilty on all counts was the verdict against Heriberto Verimontes in the Bucktown bat attack trial.
It took barely three hours for jurors to convict Verimontes of attempted murder, aggravated battery and armed robbery, in the brutal assault on Stacy Jurich and Natasha McShane.
The victims and their families say they are relieved.
Natasha’s McShane’s aunt was by her side in Ireland as the verdict was returned.
She said, “We’re just glad it’s over, and Natasha can start building her life again. He deserves whatever sentence he gets.”
Natasha still can’t talk, or read, or walk unattended.
Verimontes could face up to 120 years in prison.
