In a somewhat dramatic encounter, the Contra Costa Times caught Dalut Bey, the mother of Yusuf Bey IV, on tape yesterday after the verdict convicting her son of first-degree murder in the Chauncey Bailey case.

A cousin and former colleague of Bailey give their reactions as well.

You can also hear the reaction of Gary Sirbu, the defense attorney of convicted co-defendant Antoine Mackey, here. Sirbu called Mackey “courageous and likeable.”
