NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 7 — The owners of a suburban New Orleans nursing home were found not guilty of negligent homicide Friday in the drowning of 35 of the home’s residents in the only trial to result from deaths in Hurricane Katrina.
The three-week trial of the owners, Salvador Mangano, 67, and his wife, Mabel, 64, recounted the deadliest single episode of the storm that continues to haunt this region, and it was punctuated with tearful testimony from relatives of victims and forceful depictions of government ineptitude by the Manganos’ lawyers.
