Live video: Verdict for accused letter bomber Guido Amsel

Nearly three years after a series of explosive packages caused chaos in Winnipeg, a decision is expected on the fate of the accused bomber.

Former autobody mechanic Guido Amsel, 52, maintains his innocence and has testified he was not responsible for the bombings.

Judge Tracey Lord is expected to deliver her decision in court in front of a TV news camera, so the verdict can be broadcast live and streamed online. It will be livestreamed starting at 2 p.m.
