Words he may regret

Oh my.

The jury probably didn't like hearing those words.

On the same day East Side resident Diana Conde went missing, members of her family cornered and began beating boyfriend Armando Charles, whom they suspected of foul play.

“That bitch got what she deserved,” Charles blurted out, according to witness Kevin Rivas, who acknowledged on Wednesday hitting the suspect with a stick.

Soon thereafter, Rivas testified, he stopped swinging after Charles said: “Let me go and I'll tell you what happened.” But Charles fled, hiding under a nearby house until police arrived, several witnesses said as Charles' murder trial continued.
